National Trail Mix Day

National Trail Mix Day is Saturday, Aug. 31. And, of course, the Paola Pathways Task Force invites you to celebrate with a little homemade trail mix and an adventure on one of our trails.

There are countless recipes for trail mix to fit your specific needs and cravings. One of our favorite finds is at Greatist, where they’ve listed 21 healthy mix recipes! The gives a little history, offers nutritional advice, and provides unique mix ideas using a variety of combinations of nuts, seeds, dried fruits, grains, sweets, and savory extras to try.

So, have fun creating your own trail mix, then grab a friend, hit the trail, and enjoy sharing your snack at one of the donor-sponsored benches along the way!
