Did you know that Saturday, June 5, is National Trails Day? The forecast is looking bright, so it’s the perfect time to plan a trip to explore your local trails #OnTheCircuit.
The Circuit Trails network is comprised of more than 350 miles of trails in five Pennsylvania counties (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia) and four New Jersey counties (Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer). Each trail is unique and offers new opportunities for adventure and discovery.
Just as each trail is different, no two trail experiences are alike. It’s up to you to choose how you want to use the trails. Whether you choose to walk, run, ride, roll, play or simply be outside in nature, there are endless opportunities for you to get out and enjoy–especially on National Trails Day!
