National Trails Day is a celebration of Ireland’s wonderful variety of trails and a chance for everyone to enjoy some of our most beautiful countryside, forests, mountains and lakes.

National Trails Day 2008 was very successful, with more than 6,000 people getting out to enjoy trails in a variety of ways at over 67 events held across the country. Last year there was “bat walks”, mountain bike cycles, family orienteering, Leave No Trace hikes, trail conservation work, heritage walks and just plain ordinary walking!
