Join RCTC and 3 Rivers Outdoor for an 8.6-mile section hike on the Rachel Carson Trail. We’ll be hiking from Springdale High School to Emmerling Park.  Limited space; attendees must register for this hike: click here to register

Expect a challenge, but we'll move together at a comfortable pace and take a few snack/water breaks as needed. BYO snacks/lunch and adequate water for each hike.

This hike is limited to 20 hikers, so register early (see link above).

Hike details, recommended gear list, meeting location and ride share/shuttle options will be shared with registered participants via email a few days prior to the hike.

This hike is not geared toward hikers who are planning to complete this year's popular Rachel Carson Trail Challenge -- we'll be traveling at a more relaxed pace. The Rachel Carson Trails Conservancy (RCTC) offers a great series of volunteer led orientation and goal setting hikes for challenge participants and others interested in hiking with a pace goal.

* We hike in rain, shine, snow, etc. In the event of severe weather/unsafe conditions, a rain date will be issued. Mileage is approximate. End time 2pm is for general planning purposes only - trail conditions often dictate how quickly a section of trail will take to compete. Please plan accordingly.
