If you like hiking and want to shout out for it, consider attending or promoting (tweet! blog! text!) the events of Hike the Hill: Trails Advocacy Week, which starts today and runs till next Thursday. Sponsored by the American Hiking Society, this week is all about funding, promoting, and protecting our access to the great outdoors via foot paths.
On Valentine’s Day Monday, there will be Hike on the National Mall, a loving opportunity to raise awareness about the hiking trails of this nation and how hiking is such a darn good thing for your health. If you’re in the DC area, you’re welcome to join in this free event.
