The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and its Trails Advisory Committee have extended the deadline for accepting nominations for the 2016 Trail of the Year. The deadline for nominations is November 27.
The Trail of the Year recognition is designed to elevate public awareness of the thousands of miles of trails available for public enjoyment in Pennsylvania.
“From easygoing rail trails that parallel so many scenic waterways, to tough-climbing pathways leading to spectacular mountain-top vistas, Pennsylvanians are blessed with so many opportunities for trail-loving individuals,” DCNR Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said. “We invite all to tell us why their favorite trail holds a special place in their outdoors-loving heart.”
To honor the 2016 Trail of the Year, the advisory committee and DCNR will create a commemorative poster for statewide distribution.
The Trail of the Year will be announced in early 2016.
