The trails that you use today were once traveled by Native Americans, early valley settlers, and canal mule drivers. Today our national park has over 100 miles of trails for you to hike, bike, run, horseback ride, and ski—but funding from the National Park Service alone isn’t enough to maintain these trails.

TRAILS FOREVER lets you give back to the trails that have enriched your life immeasurably. We've accomplished a lot so far—just check out our recent accomplishments. However, there are many miles to go. With your help, we can ensure that the national park can maintain and operate, in perpetuity, a world-class trail system. To see the park’s full trail plan, visit the National Park Service website.
Show your love for trails by picking up this year's trail tag at Boston Store Visitor Center, Canal Exploration Center, Trail Mix stores, or a number of other locations around the park.
