Save the dates for the 2024 5 Hikes Challenge!

The 5 Hikes Challenge is designed for everyone interested in reaching new places and exploring unsung natural destinations in different regions throughout New Hampshire.

Participants can choose five of the 30+ hiking and walking destinations from a selection of Forest Society Reservations, located in the Seacoast, Merrimack Valley, Monadnock, Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee, Lakes, or White Mountains and North Country regions.

Each participant receives trail maps and directions, hiking tips, and information for their selected hikes in the mail. Registration fees support the continued stewardship of these beautiful places.

This year, we've added three new destinations, guided hikes for affinity groups, and a hiking gear swap on Saturday, October 26.

Stay tuned for more details! Registration opens August 19.
