All Day



Join in our Annual Fundraising Event! Enjoy the Free Pass Day at Glendalough State Park!

Families walk through the forest on a paved trailThe Glendalough State Park Citizens Advisory Board will be hosting the Park’s annual fundraiser, now in its 25th year! The Walk for Glendalough has lead to many exciting projects and updates, thanks to the generous contributions and efforts from businesses, private donors, volunteers, and walk participants. All money raised for this event goes directly to park projects.

Since the Walk began in 1996, we have seen a steady growth to park visitor count. Last year saw an unprecedented increase in visitors to the park – 127,100, up from 85,000 in 2017 and 50,000 in 2013. We hope you have enjoyed the park’s features and improvements, especially this last year when so many have found the park to be a perfect place to visit to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful natural environment.
Like last year, this year’s Walk for Glendalough has been modified to be self- guided to meet recommended safety standards for COVID-19, including social distancing. You are asked to follow guidelines posted within the park.
