13th Conference on National Scenic & Historic Trails May 14-18, 2011!
Posted on May 21, 2010 at 5:25 pm

The Partnership for the National Trails System is pleased to announce our upcoming bienniel National Trails Conference, co-hosted this year with the Overmountain Victory Trail Association and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Abingdon, Virginia.

This year’s conference theme is centered around the importance of mutually beneficial relationships between trails and trail communities. Join us for topic panels, open discussions, and success stories from around the National Trails community. As always, an exciting slate of hands-on learning awaits in the form of field trips to the many trails converging in the area. This year also offers a unique opportunity for all our trails partners, as we have timed the conference to coincide with the nearby local hiking festival Damascus Trail Days.
