Did you and your den just complete the Webelos Walkabout Adventure? Or are you working towards a merit badge like Backpacking, Hiking, or Kayaking? Want to win some cool prizes along the way? Well, you have come to the right place!

By participating in the Get Your Tail on the Trail program, you can log all of those miles towards an extra Get Your Tail on the Trail patch! Simply log 165 miles, the anticipated length of the D&L Trail, and it’s all yours! 

What is Get Your Tail on the Trail?

GYTOT is a family fun initiative developed by St. Luke’s University Health Network (St. Luke’s) and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L). The program encourages Scouts to get out hiking, biking, walking, and running on any trail in the outdoors to promote trails and exercise. Annual challenges like the 165-mile summer challenge and 30 for 30 winter challenge help motivate community members to get outside and active while earning fun prizes! Millions of miles have been logged over the past several years by thousands of participants. Join the fun now!
