Our national parks provide remarkable opportunities for outdoor recreation on more than 18,000 miles of land and water trails.

The Active Trails program promoted healthy lifestyles while simultaneously protecting and enhancing these precious land and water trail resources. This multi-faceted program offers many ways in which volunteers, community groups, corporate partners, students and educators can get involved with their national parks through hands on trail work, citizen science, formal and informal learning activities, special events and community activities.
