[ Nominate Your Favorite Trail for Pennsylvania Trail Of The Year ]

DCNR’s Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2018 Pennsylvania Trail of the Year.  The deadline for nominations is November 17.

“Pennsylvania is a leader in trail development, providing its citizens and visitors with more than 11,000 miles of trails across the Commonwealth to enjoy, from gentle pathways threading through miles of preserved greenways, to remote, rugged trails scaling the state’s magnificent mountains,” said DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn.

Each year, the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee designates a Trail of the Year to help build enthusiasm and support for both large and small trails, and raise public awareness about the value of Pennsylvania’s trail network.

Eligible trails must be at least one mile in length and be open to the public.  In honor of the achievement, the committee and DCNR produce a poster for statewide distribution and plan a public celebration for the recognized trail.

Individuals and organizations can submit a nomination form found on DCNR’s Pennsylvania Trail of the Year webpage. Entries, with supporting material, should be emailed to: RA-explorepatrails@pa.gov.
