#FindYourWay to the Rivers & Trails 50th Anniversary

In 2018, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System and the National Wild & Scenic Rivers System!

This year, the National Park Service and our partners are inviting visitors from all backgrounds to #FindYourWay... to explore America’s national scenic, recreational, and historic trails and wild and scenic rivers—and all rivers and trails in your neighborhood and beyond.

On October 2, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the National Trails and Wild & Scenic Rivers acts, establishing the two systems. Criteria for designation vary, and elements of the systems are stewarded by a variety of federal, state, and local agencies and nonprofit organizations, including the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, and Army Corps of Engineers.

From inspiring stories to fun anniversary events, the 50th is a unique opportunity to #FindYourWay to your own inspirational moments along America’s exceptional rivers and scenic and historic trails!
