Washington Trails Day 2023. Protect the trails you love.

Officially proclaimed June 24 by Gov. Jay Inslee, Washington Trails Day 2023 is a celebration of the power of hikers and WTA coming together to champion trails & public lands!

Speak up for trails you love

How is WTA celebrating Washington Trails Day? By inviting YOU to join our advocate community, Trail Action Network!

Trail Action Network is a statewide community, over 60,000 strong, of people who are ready to speak up for trails and public lands. It is a movement to explore, restore, maintain and sustain Washington's beautiful places and a tool to help you live out your values by taking action. 

Join Trail Action Network to protect the trails you love! WTA will support you every step of the way with updates, action opportunities and information about our successes.

Join Trail Action Network

We'll thank everyone who joins Trail Action Network between June 13 and June 24 with a special sticker designed with trail advocates in mind.

What hikers can accomplish - together

With the help of Trail Action Network, WTA led the way in securing $15 million in annual funding for maintenance of our state’s public lands.

The funding is already at work fixing roads and trails and making ADA-accessible upgrades and other improvements on state lands — an important step towards making Washington’s outdoors safe, enjoyable and accessible for everyone.

With this momentum, we have more work to do. We need to ensure that infrastructure is keeping pace with our state’s growing population, so that people can continue to discover Washington’s spectacular outdoors.

With more work to do, we need hikers like you to speak up for trails.

Thank you for speaking up for the trails you love!
