Rachel Carson Trail Challenge

June 24, 2006 Leave a comment

The Rachel Carson Trail is a 34-mile hiking trail near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every year on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice (to provide the longest possible daylight), the Rachel CarsonTrail Challenge is held, where participants hike (or attempt to hike) the entire trail in one day.

This was my first time participating in this event. It took me about 15 hours to hike the entire trail; I finished, but not before the “official” cut-off time.

I participated in the Hi-Tec Adventure Race at Moraine State Park (north of Pittsburgh, PA) with my friends Neil and Carrie. The race consisted of trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, and “special tests.”
