Anne Springs Close Greenway to Celebrate National Trails Day June 2nd

Visitors are Invited to Participate in Family-Friendly Activities Throughout the Day

FORT MILL, S.C., May 23, 2018 -  Join the Anne Springs Close Greenway in the celebration of National Trails Day on Saturday, June 2 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Guided hikes of varying distances and times will be offered throughout the day and will cover nearly every mile of the Greenway’s 40 miles of trails.  Visitors of all ages are invited to join in a wide variety of additional activities like scavenger hunts, Leave No Trace games, crafts, and meet the reptiles.

Hikes will range in length from 1 mile to 9 miles. They will vary in intensity level, and all will be guided. To kick off the day, the Haigler Club will be guiding visitors on a trail clean up hike.

Guests are also welcome to enjoy self-guided mountain biking or horseback riding. They are also encouraged to use #FindYourGreenway18 to post photos and share how far they hiked and which trails they did. The Greenway will compile all of these posts at the end of the day, and map them out to see which trails were covered by visitors.

The day will be free for members and will cost $5 for non-members. Visit the Anne Springs Close Greenway website or Facebook page for more information.
