Enjoy the beauty of nature in Portage Parks while getting fit!
The Portage Park District is presenting the 2015 Wild Hikes Challenge at its local parks and hike & bike trails.
Just walk 8 of the designated trails before December 31 to earn a locally made hiking stick and 2015 brass tag, this year commemorating the “Year of Soils”.
Hike on your own or come along on the guided hikes led by Park District staff and volunteers. (You can join the hikes whether or not you take the Challenge).
Your 4-legged hiking buddies can earn a dog tag for completing the Challenge with you. Most of the designated trails are rated as easy, with length ranging from 1-3 miles. If hikers can’t make all of the listed trails, they are able to substitute up to 2 of the trails with ones of their own choosing within the Park District system.
Optional donations to help cover program costs are $5/tag and $10/hiking stick.
