Hit the trails with a Cornelius Trail Passport

March 8. The town’s Parks & Rec Department is challenging residents to visit all nine greenways and trails associated with its new Cornelius Trail Passport.

From Monday, March 13- Wednesday, Sept. 30, be on the lookout for green check-in signs, which will each have a QR code.

By checking-in at all nine locations, you will receive a swag bag including Year of the Trail merchandise, sticker or magnet commemorating your completion of the challenge, and more.

At the end of September, all who complete the challenge will be entered to win prizes donated by local businesses. Prizes include a free pair of shoes from Fleet Feet of Huntersville, two 4-hour e-bike rentals from Pedego LKN, a $50 gift card to Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, a $25 gift card to Whit’s Frozen Custard, a RAY-Active pass from Mecklenburg Park & Recreation, and a hot chocolate kit from Kilwin’s.
