Sponsorship

We are pleased to announce the third annual Eagleton Trail Challenge (ETC), to be held on September 30th, 2018.    The goal of the ETC is to gain recognition and provide awareness for the Eagleton Mine Camp Trail and the Eagleton Road Demonstration Forest Trail, located off Route 120W a few miles outside of Lock Haven, PA.  Trekkers will enjoy some of the most scenic stretches of the PA Wilds via single-loop trail.

Volunteers with the Eagleton Trail Challenge have spent more than 200 hours over the past two years improving a local trail system known as the Eagleton Mine Camp Trail, which is open to hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. We are committed to responsible land use and ensuring the locations used during the Eagleton Trail Challenge are left in a better condition than they were when we arrive.

A portion of proceeds from the event go to support local organizations.  During the first two years, donations have been made to Clinton County Police Camp Cadet, Horses of Hope, and the Bald Eagle Boys Camp.
