About This Activity

The Robbins Trail and Old Reading Line Trail at the Hess Recreation Area is a beautiful place that Danville area residents have enjoyed since the 1890s. Originally created as part of our Earth Day celebration, the Robbins Run 5k & 10k Trail Races happen on tree-lined trails paralleling Mahoning Creek. Run on arguably the oldest rail-to-trail in the United States, this is a run to remember.  The Robbins Run promises to be one you will want to add to your “must do” list each year.
