TRACKING YOUR HIKES
Our challenges are self-directed, and we highly encourage you to keep track of your time outdoors. Below we have listed some ways you can track your hikes.
Please note, this is for your personal use only and we will not collect your logs.
1. You can use our journal to log your hikes.
2. We recommend you use AllTrails or Strava Apps (see the "Apps & Other Ways To Track Your Hikes" section below for directions.)
3. Stay inspired and motivate your friends to take the challenge by tracking your hikes on social media by using #hike1, #hike2, #hike3... and #52hikechallenge(year) ex. #52HikeChallenge2022.
3. Download our logs below and fill it out for each outing.
4. Log every 10 hikes you complete here for some additional perks.
