Make Tracks for webChallenge yourself – to get outside, explore new places, and enjoy the trail you are helping create!

Now through December 2015, join the Make Tracks Challenge and set and achieve your health, fitness, fun, and exploration goals by making tracks on the Ridge Trail! Pick a personal challenge – number of miles or number of outings. Each month, we'll send you an email with volunteer-led outings and suggestions for self-guided Ridge Trail adventures. There are peaks to climb, new trails to check out, and fun trail events to attend! Chart progress toward your goal on our Trail Tracker and we'll keep you motivated with prize drawings throughout the year! The Make Tracks Challenge is free for members and a suggested $10 donation for non-members.

Step 2: Record your challenge mileage or outings using our Downloadable Trail Tracker!

The “Trail Tracker” charts over 360 miles of dedicated Ridge Trail and features notes and tips on individual sections, including elevation gain/loss. The Council is currently working to create and launch a web and mobile application that will help track Ridge Trail outings – stay tuned.
