Annually, one of two big shindigs that Victor Hiking Trails (VHT) sponsors, is National Trails Day (NTD) observed the first Saturday of June. In 2016 the date is June 4th. VHT is of course one of many hiking groups that plans some organized observance on NTD. Yep, that word “national” does in fact imply many groups across the USA observe or celebrate NTD in some manner. Now, before I describe more about NTD activities, you were wondering what the other big shindig that VHT has annually. Weren’t You? Answer: the second big shindig VHT does is the VHT “challenge hike” in late September.
NTD in Victor with VHT is usually three serial hikes, with a break in between each of the three hikes for rest and refreshment. The first hike is a morning hike and the last hike finishes in the afternoon.
You can read about National Trails Day from 2015 in the the VHT newsletter The Pathfinder Spring 2015 edition (volume 20, issue 1, page 6). And of course, you can check the VHT website for updated details about the NTD hike for June 4th, 2016.
