In his first 15 days of the Trail Challenge, Mike logged 122 miles, so his goal of 150 miles in 30 days is well within sight. In that time, he has also met new walking companions and discovered new parks and trails.
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, which kicks off on National Opening Day for Trails, June 6, will highlight 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.
