Celebrate Trails Day is coming up on Saturday, April 24. Trail users in Manayunk will be treated to freebies and can join in a free run or walk.

Celebrate Trails Day takes place on the fourth Saturday of April each year. The celebration was started in 2013 by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and is meant to encourage people across the U.S. to get out and experience the nation's trails.

On Saturday, April 24, trail users in Manayunk and Lower Merion will be treated to some must-have freebies.
