TRAIL TREK CHALLENGE
Join us online to kick off the NEW Trail Trek Challenge at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 24 on Facebook Live. We’ll share highlights about the nature preserves and everything you need to know about this fun and FREE hike/walk program. We’ll also be announcing the winners of drawing prizes for those who mailed in their Hike Log from the 2020 Challenge.
Trail Trek Challenge is the year-round hike/walk program at nature preserves protected by Mississippi Valley Conservancy. The challenge is to hike at least 5 of the 16 designated trails in the program within a year. The 365-day program works for people who like to walk with family and friends, or solo, and it allows them to hike and walk when it’s convenient for them. The program includes trails that are in or close to La Crosse and trails that are in surrounding counties. Inspirations for day trips and sight-seeing are included in many of the program updates throughout the year.
2021 program has a new family-friendly feature called Find Nature’s Treasures. It’s geared to youngsters and includes a unique nature hunt for each of the 16 trails in the Trail Trek Challenge. We’ll tell you all about it in the kick-off presentation.
Get all the Trail Trek Challenge details, including trail maps, Hike-of-the-Month features, Find Nature’s Treasures, trail conditions, and more at our website.
