National Trails Day

Across the state, and the country, the first Saturday in June is identified as National Trails Day.

According to the National Parks Service, the annual event is hosted by the American Hiking Society, “Which celebrates not only national scenic and historic trails, but all trails on public lands.”

 Patrick Rooney, accompanied by his dog, Juneau, had a trailer of sorts attached to his bike, carrying a variety of tools. Many people on Mountain to Meadow on Sept. 19 had done trail maintenance before, including some Terraflow folks. Rooney encouraged volunteers to ask questions and not go all in with an axe right away. “A lot of times less can be more, and again it’s easy to get overzealous, but ultimately we’re going to make the trail better,” he said.


Conversations about developing a Big Sky chapter of the Southwest Montana Mountain Biking Association (SWMMBA) began in June at Beehive Basin Brewery.
