pacificnorthwesttrail Happy New Year! In 2018, we welcome you to #FindYourTrail — this year, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act. This landmark legislation created our National Trails System, which includes the Pacific Northwest Trail — one of America’s newest National Scenic Trails. Today, the National Trails System includes: 11 National Scenic Trails, 19 National Historic Trails, and more than 1,200 National Recreation Trails (including 21 National Water Trails). These trails provide outdoor recreation opportunities, promote resource preservation and public access, and encourage the appreciation of the great outdoors and America’s history and cultural diversity.

subarudominion #GoOutside #Repost @lyndonbjohnsonnps ・・・ Happy #NationalTrailsDay! On October 2, 1968 President Johnson signed the National Trails System Act. Some of the remarks President Johnson made on that day: "The simplest pleasures--and healthful exercise--of walking in an outdoor setting have been almost impossible for the millions of Americans who live in the cities. And where natural areas exist within the cities, they are usually not connected by walkways. In many cities, there are simply just no footpaths that lead out of the city into the countryside. Our history of wise management of America's national forests has assisted us in designating the initial elements of the National Trails System. Two National Scenic Trails, one in the East and one in the West, are being set aside as the first components of the Trails System: the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. The legislation also calls for study of 14 additional routes for possible inclusion in the Trails System." President Johnson’s full remarks can be found at: http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=29150 Today the National Trails System consists of scenic, historic, and recreational trails found all throughout the country.
