    National Trails Day Events

    • Haysi – The town of Haysi in the county of Dickenson invites you to a 3K trail event along with their annual Mile Long Yard Sale & Scavenger Hunt. The 3K is a run/walk/bike event open to all ages, and it’s pet-friendly, too. Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed, cutest, ugliest and more, so get creative. A simultaneous kids’ trail event will also offer prizes for the best decorated wagon, bike or kid.
    • Mouth of Wilson – Hike with a park ranger through alpine fields, a boreal forest and stunning rock formations to the summit of Virginia’s highest peak – Mount Rogers. Be sure to pack your lunch, water and sunscreen, and wear sturdy shoes.
    • Farmville – The Life is Complicated, Running is Simple 5K starts at Main Street Plaza and follows an out-and-back course that includes High Bridge Trail State Park. If you’ve been eyeing that soaring 160′ high train trestle, this is a great excuse to check it out. Another good excuse? The top overall mail and female finishers will be awarded with a free weekend cabin stay at a Virginia State Park. #Winning
