Bald Eagle trail walk scheduled for July 24

From Mirror reports

LOCK HAVEN – John Gradel, the vice president of the organization Friends of Bald Eagle Valley Trail, is inviting the public to take part in a 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, July 24.

The event starts at 9 a.m. at the Castanea Train Complex, 15 Logan Ave., in Lock Haven.

The event is planned to celebrate Castanea Township Community Day festivities at the Castanea Train Station Historical Complex, Fire Hall and Lock Haven Moose Lodge 100. On-site registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

To pre-register, go to RunSignUp.com, click on Races, and search Bald Eagle Valley Trail.

“The Bald Eagle Valley Trail is a true gem in our county and we want walkers and runners whether local or out of town to enjoy this prime recreational opportunity,” Gradel said. ” Plus, this organized walk/run is being held in conjunction with the adjacent fire company and Castanea Township.”

The trail starts at the Castanea Train Station Historical Complex and ends at the Wayne Township Park in McElhattan. The extension of the trail to the Linnippi Indian Monument in McElhattan and Tiadaghton Elm Access are under construction.

“We want the public to enjoy the outdoors as well as support our event and the trail,” Gradel said. “The public may choose whether to walk or run in the race. We will have athletic training students from Lock Haven University on hand to assist with basic first aid, if needed. However, the trail is flat and paved.”

Friends of Bald Eagle Valley Trail is a volunteer organization that assists with maintaining the trail. Any interested members can email bevtfriends@gmail.com to learn more.
