The 3 Peaks in 3 Weeks Challenge is Back!

We had a great time meeting the challenge.  In 50 years of living here I’d never been to the Pinnacle at Hidden Valley. Three beautiful hikes on three beautiful days in three beautiful preserves.“ – 2021 Participant

Invite family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to take the Three Peaks Challenge 2022!

Strap on your trail shoes, leash up your dog, enjoy the fresh air, and take in the beauty of fall foliage while boosting your health and wellness.

Between October 3rd-24th, hike to the three highest peaks in Steep Rock’s preserves and absorb the sights of our scenic viewsheds in autumn grandeur: the Summit at Steep Rock, the Pinnacle at Hidden Valley, and Waramaug’s Rock at Macricostas.

Participants in this friendly adventure are challenged to hike all three Steep Rock peaks in three weeks and register to win prizes for participating. All ages and fitness levels are encouraged to join—there’s no better time to get outside and enjoy nature’s beauty.

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. 

To be eligible for prizes, you must share photos of your hike on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #3peaks3weeksSRA by October 30, 2022.  If your Facebook or Instagram accounts are private, we won’t be able to see your photos so please email them to by October 30, 2022.
