Trails Less Traveled Challenge

The Challenge

Sure, exploring Jefferson City’s trails is rewarding on its own, but by joining the Trails Less Traveled Challenge, you can receive fun, free prizes and the join the company of others.  Created with the Jefferson City Trail Users group, this challenge is for you to discover local treasures, join friends for fellowship on the trails, exercise, win prizes and more!

This challenge is great for beginners and advanced hikers alike since you can tailor the length or difficulty of the hikes according to your skill level. There is also an Accessible Adventure option for those that enjoy paved surfaces and gentler slopes for their mobility needs.

Check a hike off your list with our community at the JC Parks Community Hike!
