Step Into Nature at one of our Conservation Areas or the Cataraqui Trail! We are challenging you, your family and friends to hike your favourite trails for a chance to win some great prizes. The Hike Challenge starts on Oct. 1 and runs until Nov. 27 with photo contest voting until Dec. 4, 2023. Follow the rules below and enter to win some great prizes!

To keep the challenge fresh, fun and interactive we have continued with last years Hike Challenge format to be more user-driven. We invite participants to hike their favourite trails at each of our Conservation Areas, as well as any section of the Cataraqui Trail, and take a photo during each of these individual hikes. Photos should demonstrate why you love that trail so much and can include plants, animals, your family, friends, pets or anything else that exemplifies your trail experience. Don't have a favourite trail yet? Discover a new one and post a photo of what you found interesting along your journey.

After completing each trail, upload your photos to Cataraqui Conservation’s Hike Challenge photo contest page to complete your entry. Winners will be chosen by all who visit the page, meaning potentially thousands of area folks will be inspired by your trail experience. Once the photos are uploaded, voting can commence beginning Oct. 1 and run until Dec. 4 with the winners announced during the first week of December.
