Every year more than 10,000 people participate in the Park District’s Trails Challenge program, a free self-guided program to explore regional parks and to keep fit outdoors. Trails Challenge 2019 is brought to you by the East Bay Regional Park District in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and the Regional Parks Foundation. Free 2019 Trails Challenge guide books and T-shirts are available at visitor centers while supplies last. The guidebook can also be downloaded at www.ebparks.org/TC2019Guidebook.
NO REGISTRATION NEEDED! Simply pick-up or download the Guidebook to get started! Hikes range from easy to challenging, including trails open to hikers, bicyclists, dogs, and equestrians, and many are also wheelchair accessible. To complete the challenge, hike five of the trails – or 26.2 miles of trails. The Guidebook includes detailed trail descriptions.
