Join the 2016 Trails Challenge


Join the 23rd annual EBRPD Trails Challenge! The Trails Challenge is a self-guided hiking program helping you discover your Regional Parks, while getting fit outdoors.

Download your free guidebook and get started! The booklet 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. While the program is designed to be self-guided, a number of naturalist-led hikes are offered during the year as well.

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. As in past challenges, the honor system applies.

Now it’s even easier to join the Trails Challenge!
