The seventh annual fundraiser benefits the League’s Buddy Center.

There is no registration fee for the Wag `n Trail, but participants are encouraged to collect pledges and earn prizes. You can hike the trail at your own pace anytime between 8 a.m. and noon. If you raise at least $75 in pledges, you will receive a long-sleeved Wag `n Trail T-shirt, ice cream for you and your dog, a bag of dog biscuits and a professional photo along the trail.
