According to Kasia Smith, Outreach Committee Co-Chair for SRA, “Steep Rock is thrilled to host the Three Peaks in Three Weeks Challenge this fall! We launched our inaugural event in Spring of 2021 and were blown away by the incredible support from the community, with over 150 registered participants. We now hope the incredible fall foliage will encourage more supporters and visitors to complete our challenge to explore the beauty of the Steep Rock preserves in October.”

Donations to support keeping our trails safe and clear are appreciated. Steep Rock will share additional information with registrants prior to the event. 

The event is free and open to the public.
