For the past two years, attractions, events, and gatherings have been put on hold due to COVID-19.

But as the pandemic recedes, more events and attractions are coming back and new ones are coming to the surface.

On September 6th The Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau launched a Fall Fun Trail, which began on September 6thand will go through November 6th, that includes pumpkin and apple picking, hayrides, ten outdoor spots and eight farm attractions throughout Cumberland County.

Aaron Jumper, Public Relations Manager for the Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation, said this is a way for families to enjoy fall scenery and to win prizes in a county known for outdoor exploration opportunities.

“I don’t think there’s anything like this in terms of getting prizes from a Fall Fun Trail. This is our first year of doing this,” said Jumper. “We know we have some really passionate outdoor explorers and people who love to travel here, particularly in the fall, and this is a great way to package everything together for residents to see what’s in their own backyard but also for those who are traveling three to five hours that don’t have the state parks we have or the backyard family fun stuff that’s available in Cumberland Valley.”

Jumper said he hopes people realize that there’s so much to do in the fall and encourage people to explore something new.
