National Trails Day

Celebrating Acadia’s Trails

Saturday, June 4, 2016

Discover, enjoy, and care for Acadia’s magnificent 130-mile trail system and FOA-sponsored Village Connector Trails and community trails, accompanied by park trail crew and interpretive staff members.

Look for an extra-special event for National Trail’s Day in 2016 during the Acadia Centennial. Acadia National Park Poet Laureate and Trail Crew member Christian Barter will give a short reading and speak on the connection between trailwork and poetry. And as in past years, the day will feature a hike and a volunteer work project.

Free and open to the public. Please register now! »

If you are interested in volunteering on the trails and carriage roads during the rest of the year, please visit for more information.
