It's time to hit the trails and participate in the Montgomery County Trail Challenge! The 2017 Montco Trail Challenge offers the same family-friendly experience of exploring your community and benefiting your health by getting out on the trails with some exciting changes.
ENJOY THE TRAILS AND PARKS AND PARTICIPATE IN THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY TRAIL CHALLENGE!
The Montco Trail Challenge will run seven months, from May 6 - December 3, providing more time to explore the trails and the chance to experience the seasonal changes in Montgomery County's vast network of trails and parks.
Thirteen Montgomery County trails are part of this year's challenge. The trails connect greenways, waterways, and heritage corridors throughout Montgomery County. In addition to the listed parks and trails, visit two trails, parks, or county historic sites of your choosing and receive credit towards an achievement level. You don't have to walk or bike the entire trail to get credit for the challenge - just visit, enjoy, and earn your recognitions!
This year we will be recognizing three levels of achievement with the challenge -
- visit five trails - earn a patch
- visit 10 trails - earn a medal
- visit 15 trails and parks - earn a back pack cooler!
You have until December 3, 2017 to earn your recognition! Get started today!
