International Trails Day: June 1

International Trails Day is an annual celebration of trails, trail development and the healthy lifestyle they encourage. It is celebrated each year on the first Saturday in June. Started by the American Hiking Society in 1992, Trails Day has spread to encompass all forms of recreational trail usage in more than a dozen countries worldwide. It promotes public awareness of, and appreciation for, trails and the people who build and maintain them.

Craig Campbell, faculty member in the adventure studies program can speak to the significance of trail day, as it relates to supporting hands-on education for TRU students. He has led a trail-building field school in the Northern Secwepemc Territories for several years for upper level adventure studies students.


Campbell has been an instructor in the Adventure Studies department since 2013. He teaches courses in adventure programming, business applications for adventure and eco-tourism, adventure sport and marketing and tour operations. He also instructs diploma level river guide certification courses for the Adventure Guide diploma.
