MAHWAH — The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference and REI invite nature lovers and adventure seekers to an open house at trail conference headquarters on Saturday, June 3, in celebration of National Trails Day. The event includes tours of the headquarters at Darlington Schoolhouse, guided hikes through Ramapo Valley County Reservation, and stewardship opportunities to help make a difference at this popular park.

National Trails Day is an event held across the country recognizing the power trails have in connecting people with nature. In partnership with REI, the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference will be hosting a litter pickup and invasive species removal at the reservation, as well as a variety of hikes for all interests and abilities. Join them for a family-friendly nature hike, a yoga hike, a history hike, or a more challenging 3.8-mile hike of the Vista Trail Loop, part of which was recently built by Trail Conference volunteers.

Volunteers will also be leading tours of their 125-year old headquarters, where you can check out an art exhibition dedicated to the beauty of wildflowers. REI, as well as other partner organizations, will also be sharing ideas on ways to engage with trails and nature year-round. Refreshments will be available.

The National Trails Day Open House will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Trail Conference Headquarters, located at 600 Ramapo Valley Road in Mahwah. Free parking is available at Ramapo Reservation and Ramapo College of New Jersey’s south lot. Hikes and tours of Darlington Schoolhouse have a suggested donation of $5 for adults and are free for children. Space is limited, and preregistration is required. For details and registration, visit www.nynjtc.org.
