Can You Bare It? June 21 Is Naked Hiking Day

Can You Bare It? June 21 Is Naked Hiking Day

This June 21 is best known as the summer solstice—the longest day of the year—but did you know that it is also (unofficially) Naked Hiking Day? If you decide to shed your clothing (not to mention your inhibitions) and hit the trails in only your birthday suit, keep in mind that local laws may not look so favorably upon your choice of attire.

There are no federal laws against nudity, so you wouldn’t be breaking the rules by hiking in the buff on U.S. Forest Service or National Park lands, but local and state laws may override federal laws in some areas.

So before you hit the trail in only your hiking boots, do your research to ensure the naked miles you clock won’t be seen as a criminal act. It’s probably good practice to choose trails that don’t see a lot of traffic, too. Everyone knows it’s the longest day of the year but most aren’t expecting a full moon.
