Michigan Trails Week Challenge

Because you participated in the Run for the Trees/Happy Little 5K, we wanted to tell you about a new opportunity to get outdoors.

Every mile counts! Michigan Trails Week is the perfect time to hit your favorite trail or find an all-new adventure. During Michigan Trails Week (Sept. 19-26), join us to collectively travel 100,000 miles on trails across the state and earn badges (and maybe some prizes) along the way.

How to register

The 2021 Michigan Trails Week Challenge is open to trail veterans and newcomers alike – and it's free! Simply log your miles spent on any local, county, state or federally managed trail. For each badge earned, you'll be entered in a drawing for cool outdoor gear and Michigan-branded prizes!

Run, hike, ride or paddle

Earn a badge when you register for the challenge and log at least 1 mile, and then every time you:

  • Bike for 10 miles.
  • Horseback ride for 5 miles.
  • Paddle for 2 miles.
  • Ride (ORV, ATV or motorcycle) for 15 miles.
  • Walk, run or hike for 5 miles.

Ready to hit Michigan's trails? Register now and help us hit 100,000 miles.
