Strabane District Council today announced details of two fun and exciting National Trails Day events which are scheduled to take place in Strabane District this Sunday, the 7th of October. Council is encouraging local people to take part in either an organised hike or a guided, recreational paddle.
Speaking at the launch of National Trails Day information locally the Chairman of Strabane District Council Thomas Kerrigan said: “National Trails Day is a celebration of the wonderful variety of trails and a chance for everyone to enjoy some of our most beautiful countryside, forests, mountains and rivers. With miles and miles of trails to explore, there is a trail to suit everyone.”
The guided hike to the top of Bessy Bell Hill, which is part of the Ulster Way has been organised by Strabane District Council and a Guided Eco-paddle along a section of the Foyle Canoe Trail is being hosted by the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland.
“National Trails Day offers all the encouragement everyone should need to get outdoors and explore the beautiful trails on our doorstep here in Strabane District. I would urge as many people as possible to come out on Sunday to enjoy these guided tours. It is good for our general health and wellbeing to spend time outdoors. Come along, have fun and learn more about the natural heritage within Strabane District.”
