Join the fun on the Annual Twin Valley Trail Challenge! This is a fun non-competitive hiking endurance event. We will have routes where you can hike 8-41 miles all on the Twin Valley Trail. All routes will be in Twin Creek MetroPark, Germantown MetroPark and on the TVT Connector Trail. All of the hike is in the woods on a dirt footpath except for some short road and bike path walking on the Connector Trail. Last year over 120 people accepted the Challenge!
The classic challenge is hiking the entire Twin Valley Trail in one day. This is a distance of 28 miles.Are you up to the challenge?
