The event will start at the Arthur H. King Access Area of the WYTC section of the GAP in West Newton. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used by trail volunteers to maintain, preserve and enhance the Westmoreland County section of the Great Allegheny Passage.
This event is sponsored and supported by various area merchants. This event is NOT A RACE! Participants walk or bike ride at their own pace, to checkpoints throughout the course where they pick up a playing card. At the end of the event, each poker hand is tallied and the person with the best hand in each category receives a prize. Raffle prizes will be available after 10:00 AM. At 11:00 AM the winners of the best hands in all events will be announced along with the winner of the bike and the 50/50 drawing.

Checkout what is new with the Westmoreland Yough Trail Chapter. New Memorial Benches and Kiosks have been installed in the Memorial Pavilions.
The key aspect will be the project’s floor, a brick memorial funded by those who want to remember a loved one or special event. It will be a place for everyone to pause and reflect on that special person or time in their life. For as little as $100.00, each brick can include the names, statement, and graphic of your choosing. A gift that will honor something meaningful to you and keep on giving through your support of one of best trails in Western Pennsylvania.
The first order of Memorial Bricks is in and have been installed. More are on the way.
A special thanks to those who purchased benches and bricks. If you haven't bought your brick yet, there is still time.
