We will be in the process of transitioning trail markers at the parks. If you go to a park and the trail marker is not there, simply take a picture and write in the park name to get credit. We are hoping to have the missing rubbings during the month of July.
The Quest begins…
“Live Well Frederick” invites you to hit the trail and experience Frederick County’s diverse outdoor adventures! This booklet provides an opportunity to experience the outdoors and be active with your friends and family while discovering some of the best parks and trails in Frederick County. This passport gives a description of Twenty (20) trails and parks located in Frederick County, Maryland.
Just take your Wegmans Passport with you and record your progress by using a pencil or crayon to make a rubbing of the trail marker (designated by a symbol on each map) located along each trail. Trail markers are mounted on posts and are similar to the one illustrated on the inside back cover.
If you are unable to maneuver the trail, take three (3) pictures around the park, print them, and attach to the corresponding trail map in the booklet. See how many rubbings you can collect and look for the prizes that await you!
If you walk (7) of the trails listed in this Passport, go to 355 Montevue Ln. Suite 100, Frederick, MD 21702 and receive a gift.
Questers who complete all twenty (20) trails will be entered into a raffle for one of three prizes: (1) $250 Wegmans Gift Card, (2) Gift Certificates for a Fitness or Nutritional program from Frederick County Parks and Recreation.
Prizes can be picked up at the Frederick County Division of Parks and Recreation’s main office Monday – Friday 7:30 am- 4:30 pm. The main office is also the last trail in the Passport booklet.
