National Trails Day at Land Between the Lakes

National Trails Day at Land Between the Lakes

Folks enjoy a hike along Hematite Lake Trail in Land Between The Lakes earlier this year.

On Saturday, June 3, 2017, Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area invites the public to help with general trail maintenance of the Canal Loop Trail. In celebration of the 25th Annual National Trails Day , the volunteer effort will enhance the hiking experience for visitors.

“Trails provide a great way to enjoy America’s Great Outdoors,” commented Kyle Varel, Trails Manager at Land Between the Lakes. “We offer hundreds of miles of scenic trails for hikers, bikers and riders.” National Trails Day volunteers will support safe and accessible trails through tread work and re-blazing the loop and connector trails.

Volunteers will meet at the North Welcome parking lot at 8:30am and work until about 12pm. Participants should bring lunch, water and a day pack, and wear appropriate clothing, including work boots.

The Forest Service will provide tools, materials, gloves, hard hats and safety glasses. For more information about volunteering or National Trails Day, contact Nickolaus Willis at 270-924-2007, or email volunteer@friendsoflbl.org. This event is weather dependent.

Woodlands Nature Station staff offers free guided Morning Nature Hikes every Tuesday morning in June from 11am–12pm. These hikes feature trails within the Woodlands Nature Watch Area.

To find more information about Land Between the Lakes, call 1-800-LBL-7077 or 270-924-2000.
