Hike Five Challenge

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 a patch featuring one of the Public Conservation Area mascots and a Northern or Southern Columbia County Outdoors Guidebook. Visit all ten sites and we’ll throw in both guidebooks. We’ve also created a fun scavenger hunt for kids to fill out while you hike.

** Please practice social distancing while completing the Hike Five Challenge! Maintain at least a six-foot distance from other hikers. Thank you for being patient while waiting for your patches – CLC staff are all working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. **
