On Saturday | Join us to HIKE, BIKE, PADDLE, or PLAY at the Riverlands Trail Festival. Join us on the first Saturday in June anytime between 10 am and 3 pm to hit the trail, learn about our heritage, and explore our natural and cultural resources. Pick up a passport when you arrive. On your trail adventure you’ll find stops all along the 11-mile trail between Columbia and Shock’s Mill Bridge. Stop to get your passport stamped and do some fun trail-side activities. Drop your passport off at any trail-head to be entered to win great prizes!
