Trails Challenge 2017

This FREE self-guided program is brought to you by a partnership between the East Bay Regional Park District, Kaiser Permanente, and the Regional Parks Foundation.

No Registration is needed to participate. Simply download the Guidebook and get started! The Guidebook includes detailed trail descriptions for hikes in 20 Regional Parks or Trails. Hikes range from easy to challenging. There are trails open to hikers, bicyclists, dogs, and equestrians, and many are wheelchair accessible. To complete the challenge, hike five of the trails – or 26.2 miles of trails – by December 1st, and submit a trail log to receive a commemorative pin, while supplies last. As in past challenges, the honor system applies.

You can obtain a free Trails Challenge t-shirt. Remaining sizes include adult 2X, youth extra large, and some adult small. Download a copy of the Guidebook by clicking the link below.

In addition to this self-guided program, we offer many naturalist-led hikes throughout the year. For more information, click HERE. Or visit our Calendar.
