Get Outside & Hike-a-thon with Us!

Open to all Ages and Abilities

What better way to give thanks and give back than by spending time in nature? The goal of Hike-a-thon is to get as many people as possible outside the weekend after Thanksgiving to see for themselves just how powerful time outdoors can be for our physical and mental health.

Anyone can join Hike-a-thon from anywhere! And all types of hikes are encouraged—from a stroll around the neighborhood to trying out a universally-accessible All Persons Trail to taking on a challenging summit hike.


Sign up so we can see just how many people we can collectively encourage to opt outside!

There's no charge to participate. But by donating $10 or more, you'll help us provide access to nature for more people in more places.

The higher the donation, the bigger the impact.
