Need an excuse to check out a new trail? Looking for a new adventure? The Blue Trails Challenge invites you to discover the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trail System and do something good for your body and mind! Hike any of the trails in the trail system and accumulate miles and memories as you go. With three challenge categories (200, 400, or 800 miles) you can stitch together a hiking challenge on the trails that is right for you. There’s no time limit, you can complete a challenge category in a single season or across your hiking lifetime. Keep track of your mileage on this log form. Please only count one-way mileage and don't repeat miles on the same trail.
200-miler: CFPA t-shirt
400-miler: CFPA water bottle
800-miler: CFPA fleece vest
If you're new to the trails, the Blue Trails Challenge is a chance to discover the many health benefits of hiking. And if you're already a hiker, it’s another way to keep active and explore new trails outside your immediate region or in different seasons. Hike on your own, with your dog, with family, with friends, or with your hiking/outing club. Pass the word and encourage others to take the challenge! Be inspired by meeting our current 800-Milers!
When you’ve completed a challenge, stop into our office and let us know, sign our logbook, pick up your award and let us take a photo of you with your favorite hiking boots!
