The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, along with its Appalachian Trail Community partners and 31 trail-maintaining clubs, invite families to take a hike on the trail on Saturday during the fourth annual Family Hiking Day. Held trailwide on National Public Lands Day, Family Hiking Day was developed by the ATC to introduce families to the A.T. and the benefits of spending time outdoors. With studies showing children are spending less time outdoors each year, the ATC developed this program to help get kids, youth, families and trailside neighbors outside and active.
