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 and a CLC hat. We’ve also created a fun scavenger hunt for kids to fill out while you hike.

Participation in the Hike Five Challenge is easy:

1) Click here or stop in to the CLC Office at 49 Main Street to get an entry form

2) Visit at least five of CLC’s Public Conservation Areas between now and December 31, 2020, and log your visits on your entry form

3) Submit your entry at the CLC Store or by clicking here

We’d love to see photos of your adventures! Tag us on Instagram using #clchikefive or check in to each Public Conservation Area on Facebook when you visit!

The Hike Five Challenge is sponsored by CDPHP.
