Hikers Challenge


Steep Rock Association is sponsoring a hiker’s challenge. Walk all 40 +/- miles of trails in the three Steep Rock Preserves — Hidden Valley, Steep Rock and Macricostas — and become a member of Steep Rock Association’s hiking club. To participate, please fill out the Hiker’s Challenge registration form: 

**Email pictures to info@steeprockassoc.org as .jpeg attachments and type ‘Hiker’s Challenge In Action’ in the subject line of the email. When the registration form is completely filled out, either submit the document electronically or print the document and send it to the Steep Rock Association office along with a check for $40.00. Upon registration, you will receive a map of each preserve and an official Steep Rock Association hat. Mark and date each trail walked for your reference. 

Once the challenge is complete, contact the Steep Rock office with your completion date:

You will receive a Steep Rock Association lapel pin to affix to your Steep Rock Association hat and a certification of completion. Your name will also be listed here on our website. There is no time limit for completing the challenge. Happy Hiking!!!

**Please note: Be sure to hike all trails and connectors, not just marked trail loops. Cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is allowed. Horseback riding or biking is not allowed.
