Thank you for following the americanhikingsociety takeover of My Public Lands Instagram and sharing part of Memorial Day with us.

“American Hiking works diligently every day in beautiful landscapes both across the country and in your own backyard to make sure the same trails you hike today, are there to hike tomorrow.   We hope that you and your family will take the time to visit those trails and other public lands today.  

Pictured here, the BLM’s Wild and Scenic Trinity River in Redding, California, world famous for its fly fishing.  Paddlers enjoy the narrow valley with Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir, Oaks, and Madrone trees coating the walls of the canyons.  The adventure-driven explore the white waters below Pigeon Point rage at class III-V. Other just hit the trail with friends and family, horses, even the family pet.

Today, we enjoy these experiences outdoors, and remember those who have sacrificed to protect our beautiful American landscapes.”
