The 4-H Wildside Summer Hiking Challenge starts July 1, 2023 and runs until September 21, 2023.
Welcome to NH 4-H’s first Summer Hiking Challenge. This one is just as fun to accomplish as the others, a little simpler, and as sure to get you in touch with your wildside as ever! Do not miss out on the action and adventure this summer. This project is designed for families to do at their convenience, and it is IDEAL for 4-H Clubs to do together.
GET OUT THERE!
There are 4 types of trails: Loop, Horseshoe, Line, and Trail Systems. This Challenge requires you to hike them all to get your Summer Hiking Challenge patch. That’s it. Pretty simple, huh? The hardest part will be selecting the trails that fit the criteria. Not because it’s hard to know what trails fit the criteria (your booklet will teach you all about this), but because there are SO MANY awesome trails in NH to choose from.
The Challenge Booklet will walk you through the challenge, advise you on how to select your trails, help you pack for the hikes & remain as safe as possible, and describe how to submit your booklet when you have completed the challenge.
When you register you will be mailed a Challenge Booklet which will walk you through the challenge, advise you on how to select your trails, help you pack for the hikes & remain as safe as possible. It will describe how to submit your booklet when you have completed the challenge to receive your patch.
