KTA's 2nd Annual Membership Celebration & Film Festival
Keystone Trails Association (KTA) today announced its second annual KTA Membership Celebration & Film Festival. The event will be held on Thursday, March 19, 2015, starting at 6:30 pm at the Wesley Center of Camp Hill United Methodist Church, 417 South 22nd Street, Camp Hill, PA. “Last year, we began our tradition of the KTA Membership Celebration and Film Festival,” said Wanda Shirk, President of KTA. “We will continue it this year, with an emphasis on Pennsylvania’s hiking trails. KTA will celebrate its work, the state's precious trails, and the backbone of KTA - its membership.” “Our 2015 event will feature several films, all about trails in Pennsylvania,” Shirk said. “Last year, we focused solely on the Appalachian Trail. This year, we will feature other equally beautiful trails that may not be as well-known. It will be a great opportunity to learn about new places to hike.” Attendees will be given an opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite film, and the film with the most votes will receive the coveted KTA “Film of the Year” Award. “In addition to some great films, the event will also spotlight KTA’s advocacy efforts on trails and wild spaces, feature other hiking, trails and environmental organizations, and celebrate KTA’s membership base,” she said. “It is a unique opportunity for new and experienced trail enthusiasts to learn more about KTA and the footpaths we help protect throughout the state.” “Last year, eighteen partner organizations, member clubs, non-profit and commercial businesses had displays at our Membership Celebration,” Jim Foster, Chair of the event, said. “Please contact us if your organization or business would like to set up an informational or retail table during the event.” Tickets for the KTA Membership Celebration and Film Festival are just $15.00. Non-members will, in addition to admission to the event, also receive a one-year introductory membership to KTA. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://tinyurl.com/nk8wqm3 or at the door. Additional information about KTA and this event is available at www.kta-hike.org.

7th Annual Susquehanna Super Hike and Ultra Trail Run (25K/50K)
On September 12, 2015, the Keystone Trails Association will sponsor the seventh annual Susquehanna Super Hike & Ultra Trail Run, a trail challenge event for adventurous trail runners and hikers on the wild river hills of the lower Susquehanna Gorge. This daunting trail challenge event on the Mason Dixon and Conestoga Trails alternates breathtaking vistas with steep descents into dark, scenic hollows followed by strenuous climbs to the next vista. Prepare yourself for the steep hills, rocky terrain and deep ravines of the Susquehanna Super Hike, an arduous, undulating and challenging course. This year, participants can choose between a 50K "Ultra Trail Run" and a 25K "Super Hike"! Hikers and trail runners are invited to register for the length best suited for their fitness level and interest. Both events follow the same trails, with the 25K participants starting later and at a different location than the 50K participants.

Meeting Place: Pequea Creek Campground
Difficulty: Difficult
Length of Hike: 31 miles
