Hike Five Challenge

What do I need to do? Visit at least five of CLC’s Public Conservation Areas between now and December 31, 2022, and log your visits on your entry form.

Hike Five with the Columbia Land Conservancy!

Did you know that the Columbia Land Conservancy owns and manages ten Public Conservation Areas across Columbia County, home to more than 30 miles of trails? These special places feature waterfalls, peaceful woodlands, and scenic views galore.

So let’s explore them together! Complete the challenge and you’ll be eligible for one patch featuring a Public Conservation Area mascots. Check out this fun scavenger hunt for kids to fill out while you hike.
