  [All day event] Statewide: Connecticut Trails Day
For a state small in geography, Connecticut always goes big when it comes to public land use and outdoor recreation. The Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), organizers of the annual Connecticut Trails Day celebration, the largest of its kind in the nation. Showing support by getting outside and having some fun is a relatively easy challenge with over 200 free, guided activities happening in towns across the state. Events are hosted by volunteer groups and individuals and include hiking, biking, horseback riding, running, trail maintenance, kayaking, educational walks, bird watching, letterboxing, and more for people of all ages and interests. A full listing of all events, organized by town, activity and interest, can be found online at www.ctwoodlands.org/TD2018DIR or in the Connecticut Trails Day booklet available at town/city halls, nature centers, state parks, outdoor retailers, public libraries, and at CFPA’s headquarters located at 16 Meriden Road (Route 66) in the Rockfall section of Middlefield.
