GRAND CANYON, Ariz. - At a time when it is difficult to keep up with all your various social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, email, Foursquare, and LinkedIn, Active Trails presents you with the opportunity to take your social network out-of-doors.

Grand Canyon National's Park's Division of Interpretation is proud to announce the return of Grand Canyon Active Trails. The Grand Canyon Active Trails program, initiated last year with National Park Foundation funds, encourages healthy physical activity and promotes community and visitor use of park hiking and biking trails.

The Grand Canyon Active Trails Team will hold their first event of the 2012 season on April 25 in conjunction with National Park Week. At 5:30 p.m., the Team will begin a three-mile walk along the Rim Trail from Bright Angel Trailhead to Mather Point.

Walkers may arrive at the departure point as late as 6 p.m. to participate. As with all future Active Trails events, participants are encouraged to bring water, snacks, a hat, sunscreen, and sturdy footwear to this event. Children are to be accompanied by an adult.

The Grand Canyon Active Trails Team has sixteen events planned for the spring, summer, and fall of this year, including walks, hikes and bike rides. There are also Active Trails events planned for National Trails Day, National Get Outdoors Day, and National Public Lands Day. Community members and park visitors alike are encouraged to participate in these fun and family friendly activities.

Funding for this year's Grand Canyon Active Trails program is being provided by the park's cooperating association and fund raising partner Grand Canyon Association.

Details on, and changes to, proposed events will be posted on the Grand Canyon Active Trails Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Grand-Canyon-Active-Trails/127828990655457?bookmark_t=page and the Active Trails Webpage: www.nps.gov/grca/supportyourpark/active-trails.htm. Anyone with questions regarding Grand Canyon Active Trails can reach the Team on Facebook or call (928) 638-7088.
