Take the Trail Challenge

Set a Goal and Hit the Trail

Join the Trail Challenge! Set your goal(s), create your plan, push your limits.  

This program year, June 2019 to June 2020, has a few new twists:
Cycling has been added to the mix. Pedal, paddle, run or walk – all miles count. See Reward Levels below. 

Now, 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 on foot, bike or kayak/canoe. After all, that is the goal of Trail Challenge, to get you outside and moving. 

Take it Off Toledo

Metroparks is partnering with the City of Toledo’s weight loss challenge, Take it Off Toledo, in June, July and August. Miles earned during these months can be logged in both programs.
