Marilla Winter Trek set for Saturday at Marilla Reservoir

Marilla Winter Trek set for Saturday at Marilla Reservoir

BRADFORD, Pa. - Come rain or snow or shine – the Marilla Winter Trek will take place on Saturday.

The annual event, now in its third year, will be held from noon to 4 p.m. at the Marilla Reservoir, located five miles west of the City of Bradford on Route 346.

Sponsored by the Tuna Valley Trail Association, the winter trek generally includes cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on the agenda. However, in the event Mother Natures does not come through with some snow, the event will still be held and would focus on hiking the Marilla Trail System.

The event, free and open to all ages, provides an outlet for people to escape cabin fever and hit the trails.

A free shuttle service will be held to the top of Marilla Springs Trail for a four-mile return hike and Hidden Valley Trail for a one-mile return hike.

A new geocaching component will take place from noon until 2 p.m. Temporary event caches – artic animals that turn white for winter - were placed along the Marilla Bridges and the Marilla Springs trails.

Participants will fill out a game card based on each cache. Those returning the card with the correct answers by the end of the event will receive a prize.

Free refreshments and a bon fire will be provided by the trail association.

For more information on the Marilla Winter Trek, call Gene Cornelius at 814-362-9928 or Rick Lutz at 814-362-2323.
