Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn encouraged Pennsylvanians to nominate their favorite trail for the 2022 Trail of the Year award.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee, designates a Trail of the Year to help build enthusiasm and support for trails and raise public awareness about the value of Pennsylvania’s trail network.
“Pennsylvania is home to some of the most beautiful trails in the world and DCNR is proud to recognize the impact of one of our top trails each year,” Dunn said.
“Whether it is the gentle pathways threading through miles of preserved greenways or rugged trails scaling the state’s magnificent mountains, the commonwealth has it all. We want to hear from those who enjoy our wonderful trails and help spread the word about the top trail of the year,” added Dunn.
The Pennsylvania Trails Advisory Committee is charged with implementing the development of a statewide land and water trail network to facilitate recreation, transportation, and healthy lifestyles for all. Pennsylvania is home to over 12,000 miles of trails.
If you know of a trail that provides unique opportunities, encourages and celebrates diverse user groups, or enhances your community, please nominate it for the 2022 Trail of the Year.
For consideration, a nomination form and supporting documentation must be submitted online by Nov. 12.
For more information about where to submit the form and supporting materials, visit the Pennsylvania Trail of the Year webpage at www.dcnr.pa.gov.
The Trail of the Year will be announced in early 2022.
