Berks Trail Challenge 2021


The purpose of the Berks Trail Challenge is to promote a free form of exercise to residents of our community. The challenge encourages individuals, groups, and/or clubs to explore various trails and parks throughout Berks County and enjoy mindful leisure activity.


The 2021 Berks Trail Challenge has officially started! The challenge will take place June 7 through October 29.

The Challenge is open to residents of all ages. Register below and print your Berks Trail Challenge card to get started (Note: Reading Hospital employees, please use your work email when registering.)

Blue Mountain Eagle Climbing Club will be leading guided hikes throughout the challenge. Participation in these hikes is not a requirement of the challenge. It is meant to provide an opportunity to safely hike and socialize with other challenge participants.

Submit your Berks Trail Challenge Card by Friday, November 5, to be entered to win a prize! 40 winners will be selected at random and notified by Friday, November 12, to coordinate pick up or delivery of their prize.

Please remember to leave our trails better than you found them! No littering – throw away any trash in the proper receptacle or take it with you when you leave.

We want to hear from you! Post photos or videos of your participation on social media and tag them using #BerksTrailChallenge and @ReadingHospital!
