Participants will then have until March 2nd to complete the challenge.

We will have a promotional table with information on how to sign up for Tail on the Trail and start logging your miles for the ‘30 Miles in 30 Days Winter Challenge’. It’s a motivational challenge to get you outdoors and active….get your tail on the 2021 PA Trail of the Year!

The D&H Rail Trail Council will host a calendar of activities throughout the month of February including Walking Mondays, Second Saturday Trail Yoga, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and winter hikes to help you achieve your 30 miles. You are not alone. Consider joining us for the XC Skiing Clinic in the morning and/or a snowshoe hike in the afternoon. Please pre-register for these events here.

The fire pit at the Caboose will be blazing, creating a cozy space for you to sit and enjoy some hot beverages and refreshments that will be available at Cables General Store.  We encourage you to bring your children and grandchildren. A family challenge is always fun. Children are always surprised and enjoy getting outdoors on the trail, in the woods.  Remember it builds health physically and mentally, AND it’s good for everyone.
