"Pennsylvania has it all, 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. "We want to hear from those who hold these special places close to their heart."
To honor the 2017 Trail of the Year, the advisory committee and DCNR will create a commemorative poster for statewide distribution.
For consideration, a nomination form and supporting documentation must be submitted to DCNR by November 11, 2016. Visit the advisory committee website at http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/brc/recreation/trails/patrailsadvisory/ to download the form and further instructions.
The Trail of the Year will be announced in early 2017.
