The Montco Trail Challenge 

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health, in partnership with the Planning Commission, Commissioners, and Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites, is hosting the 9th annual Montco Trail Challenge. 

Selected parks and trails throughout the County have been identified and assigned a unique symbol, placed at trailheads or parking lots. Upon visiting the listed parks and trails, participants must find and correctly identify the symbol, like a scavenger hunt.

The 202 Trail is an eight-mile course from Montgomeryville to Doylestown, Bucks County. The trail is unique in that it parallels US Route 202 with a split-rail fence and grassy strips providing the barrier between drivers and pedestrians. 


The Chester Valley Trail is a 13-mile rail trail which runs largely through the Great Valley of Pennsylvania in Chester and Montgomery counties in southeastern Pennsylvania.


As the name suggests, Horsham's 5-mile Power Line Trail follows the PECO right-of-way through the township. The trail connects many of the township's parks, schools and points of interest, including Deep Meadow Park, Kohler Park, and the Jarret Nature Center.
