Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 7, 2014 for National Trails Day! Provo City and the Rock Canyon Preservation Alliance are celebrating Provo’s trail system by hosting three events at the Rock Canyon Trailhead Park. Rock Canyon is used and loved by families, hikers, students, Scouts, rock climbers, and nature enthusiasts. This will be a great time to showcase Provo’s beautiful landscapes, enjoy the outdoors, and give back to our trails.
Check out the schedule of events below:
