Do you love our trails? Join us as we celebrate all the places to walk, hike, bike, and even paddle in Greensboro!  Greensboro Parks & Recreation with support from our partner agencies will be celebrating on July 27 at Country Park with guided walks, hikes, yoga, peddling and paddling opportunities, a kids adventure course, crafts, storytelling, a water slide, and more! Plan to bring the whole family to this free, family-friendly event.  

We've been working hard to make this an incredible event for everyone!  Join us for a hike, ride or run before it gets too hot.  Many of our community partners are responsible for working with Greensboro Parks and Recreation to build and maintain the trails we love. There is no one better to lead you through the woods, whether this is your first time in the woods, or you are a veteran trail user. Thanks to the Piedmont Hiking and Outing Club (PHOC) for hosting our hikes, and Piedmont Fat Tire Society (PFTS) for hosting our rides. Registration is not required but will help us plan. Register here! 

Need the kids to burn some energy? We've got you covered. The staff at Country Park are working hard to make an adventure course the kids won't forget. Run with them (or watch from the sidelines as they roll down hills, hop fences, run through the woods, take the pedal boats out for a spin and enjoy a hayride back to the starting line. One adult per pedal boat is required! The first 150 kids to register will receive a finisher's medal. 

At 10 am, head up to the Jaycee parking lot to test your bike skills with Bicycling in Greensboro (BIG) and Safe Guilford, then check out the Goose Masters as they show us out to manage geese using their sweet pups. Test out some boats with Get:Outdoors, or get your craft on with Downtown Greenway and the Greensboro Science Center. Need to chill for a minute? Head over to The Zone to check out the BMX demo, or head down to the shelter to hear about one of the most important trails in history, the Underground Railroad. 

If that's not enough incentive, we'll be giving away some sweet swag from our sponsors and partners! Stick around till the end and you may head home with some cozy socks from Thorlo, or a gift card to Great Outdoor Provision.  

Already have vacation plans on the books? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Check out any of our watershed trails or greenways the week before the event and you may run into one of our friendly staff handing out swag to thank you for loving our trails!
