Looking for something to do this weekend? Saturday, June 7, is National Trails Day, which is as good an excuse as any to take a break and go for a walk (or paddle or pedal). Although it's not as hot as the weather will be later in the summer, you still need to pay attention to the heat. Last summer I wrote a piece on hiking in hot, humid weather (here's a link).
You might also want to check out The American Hiking Society, who started National Trails Day back in 1993. They have all kinds of helpful information on hiking and supporting our national trail system.
