This year marks the 50th anniversary of the National Trail System here in the U.S., and to celebrate a new public service campaign has been launched to help remind us just how fantastic of a resource America’s trails truly are. The U.S. Forest Service has initiated a program called Discover the Forest, which is designed to help us reconnect with the outdoors in a meaningful way. The fantastic video below epitomizes this message so well, demonstrating how these trails can be a powerful tool for families, communities, and individuals searching for adventure. It is a good reminder, even for those of us who do this regularly.
