We are so proud of our Trail TRACKers, and that's why we like to recognize those who go out of their way to explore our trails. Each month, we honor at least one of these special explorers with the title of Trail TRACKer (or TRACKers) of the Month.
Meet Trail TRACKers of the Month Geeoh and Suoh!
Geeoh and Suoh have TRACKed 11 adventures! Answers from parent, Youngjoo.
What’s your favorite TRACK Trail? Why?
"National Mall and Memorial Parks TRACK Trail. It is very near to our home and so easy to access. There many things to see."
What’s your favorite TRACK Trail brochure adventure?
"Stone Bridge Trail's Civil War Tales" at Manassas National Battlefield. It has a simple map and my kids can use it and find the road by themselves. Also, it has a small history so it is beneficial to them.”
What’s the most exciting wildlife you’ve ever seen on a TRACK Trail?
“Cute squirrels which we fed nuts.”
What’s the longest hike you’ve ever done?
“Rock Creek Park in D.C. It is 1.8 miles long so it was a little bit difficult but my sons were with their friends and they were all excited and felt fun. They ran and ran and climbed the hill and threw cobblestones to the stream.“
What is the coolest trail experience you’ve ever had?
“Catoctin Mountain Park - Blue Blazes and Falls Loop in Maryland. The trail is relatively short but the scenery is so wonderful. At the end of the trail, we can meet small but fantastic cascades.”
If you could go for a hike anywhere in the world, where would it be?
“My kids want to go for a hike in Switzerland. When they saw the picture of Jungfrau, they could not help exclaiming.”
Do you have any hiking tips for other Trail TRACKers?
“At first, my little one did not like a hike so much, but after he knew Kids in Parks he enjoyed it. Actually, he was motivated by getting gifts from Kids in Park. It is a very nice pick-me-up.”
