Kick Off the 150th With the Old Fort Trail Challenge


Want to celebrate the Sesquicentennial with a challenge?  Are you one of the many people who love Fort Thomas for how walker and runner friendly it is? Are you the outdoors type?

If so, why not walk right off the sidewalks and into the beautiful forests of Fort Thomas by participating in the Old Fort Trail Challenge sponsored by the Fort Thomas Forest Conservancy.  The challenge is to hike all of the Tower Park trails (as detailed on a map) all in one day.  Check-points will be located throughout the trail system where participants can stamp their maps and read a sign to learn a little bit about Fort Thomas history.


This is an advertisement. 
Not sure if you can hike the whole trail system? Don't worry, just hike what you can. Hikers who do complete all of the trails can return their stamped map and receive a badge of completion.

This event will take place on Sunday, July 2 from 9:00 am until noon. There is a $20.00 entry fee per family and includes one t-shirt.  Additional shirts can be bought for a $15.00 fee.

This is a fundraising event and all proceeds will go toward the Conservancy’s ongoing mission of protecting the forests in Fort Thomas. Participants must register by June 21 in order to receive a shirt. Take the challenge and sign up today at www.ftfc.org.
