NATIONAL TRAILS DAY EVENT     JUNE 2, 2018

For at least the last decade, a local event has been held on National Trails Day. On June 2, KCAHTA will be co-hosting with Trails Head Chapter of OCTA and the Missouri River Outfitters Chapter of SFTA, an

event to be held at Lone Elm Park in the Rendezvous Shelter,  at 167th and Lone Elm Road in south Olathe.

This event will be a memorable one because 2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the very important National Trails System Act which was passed by the U. S. Congress on October 2, 1968 and signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson.
