Take the Trail Challenge

Set a Goal and Hit the Trail

Join the trail Challenge!  The new season of the Metroparks Trail Challenge season will have added meaning this year. Trail Challenge - The Wellness Year highlights wellness and joy – two things that are especially important right now.

Sign up, set a goal and hit the trails for your health and well being, while making friends and memories along the way. Everyone enrolled in the Challenge is invited to participate in a Facebook group to share photos, experiences and words of encouragement to others. As always, ALL miles count toward your goal, regardless of where you choose to recreate – miles in a Metropark, in your neighborhood, a City Park, on vacation or anywhere outdoors that you are purposefully accumulating miles.
