Armstrong Trails hosts ‘First Walk’

From staff reports

Armstrong Trails is hosting a First Walk at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 1, 2021. Armstrong Trails is located in Armstrong and Clarion Counties in Western Pennsylvania.

Participants are to meet at the Phillipston parking lot at 94 N. Apple Street in Rimersburg (note that navigation and GPS may have this address listed as East Brady).

The walk will start at the turntable and the turnaround point will be the Brady Tunnel for a 3-mile round trip walk. At this event, an update will be given on the Brady Tunnel Rehabilitation project, the 2021 goals and how you can support Armstrong Trails.

There will be a bonfire at the newly renovated turntable next to the parking lot and refreshments will be available before and after the walk.

Since this event will be held outdoors, leashed fur friends are welcome.

As per Governor Wolfe’s orders, participation is limited to the first 50 to arrive at the outdoor event.

If there are more than 50 participants, a group will start out in the opposite direction and walk to the Pine Run Waterfall and back.

Please follow current CDC guidance and state requirements. For this event, no pre-registration is required and there is no event fee.

Armstrong Trails welcomes any donations to be able to continue their work. Also, shirts and car stickers will be available for purchase at this event.

Information is available at or by calling Toni Henry at (412) 759-9152.
