About Spring Sprockets

What is Spring Sprockets & Walk-Its?

It’s a scavenger hunt scramble event for bikers and walkers of all ages and levels in Pine Hill Park. The family-friendly event runs from 10am to 1pm and benefits the Homeless Prevention Center. This year (our third) we’ll have music, snacks, prizes, a bike repair clinic, and plenty of other surprises!

So, what IS the scavenger hunt scramble exactly?

Bikers head up onto the rad network of mountain bike trails at Pine Hill Park, while walkers and joggers explore the walking loops and activities on the adjacent Giorgetti trails. Along both routes are buckets and pails for participants to put their chips in. (You get chips at the registration table). Everyone meets back up at the Giorgetti parking lot where those chips are drawn at random for prizes!

But I Loooove walking and riding, can I do more?

You bet! Before and after prizes, folks will be riding and walking the trails just for the fun of it! Bring friends to ride with or make new ones there. And…

…Stay for the Double Feature!

This year, our fantastic partners at Come Alive Outside are hosting their Jedi Trails event in the afternoon at the same location. Spring Sprockets from 10-1 / Jedi Trails from 1 to 3:30. Come and make a day of it with HPC and Come Alive Outside at Pine Hill Park!
