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 free 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.
