Do we really need a day set aside to remind us to take a walk in the woods? Apparently so. National parks and forests across the country will waive entrance fees June 9 to mark National Get Outdoors Day, or GO Day, as it's called.

The deal: GO Day visitors to Grand Canyon National Park save the $25 entrance fee. There are also freeĀ  ranger-led activities, such as a three- to four-hour hike down the South Kaibab Trail to Cedar Ridge; an easy walk to see marine fossils; and a guided bicycle ride on the South Rim.

When: Fees will be waived June 9.

Details: The fee-free day in Southern California means you won't need to display a $5 Adventure Pass to visit the Angeles, Los Padres, Cleveland and San Bernardino national forests. If you plan to visit a park or forest, check online or ask about GO Day activities.
