I enjoyed doing the 52 Hike Challenge last year (2017) so much that I wanted to do the Adventure Series version this year (2018).
The Adventure Series is just like the original 52 Hike Challenge, but it has some objectives. They are:
- 5 Waterfalls
- 1 Forest
- 1 National Park, Monument, Preserve, Recreation Area, or Historic Trail
- 2 Lakes, Rivers, or Ocean
- 1 Stewardship Hike (picking up trash or volunteer with a restoration project)
- 1 Group Hike
- 1 Introduce someone new to hiking
- 1 Sunset or Sunrise Hike
- 1 Hike from your Bucket List
- 3 Reflection Hikes
I normally pick trails based on how far I feel like driving / where we are vacationing, but this challenge will really push me to be more thoughtful about my hikes. It is also going to be a challenge to find someone I know that I can introduce to hiking – I think I’ve dragged just about everyone I know on a hike at one time or another. I’m hoping for my group hike, that I can attend either a Mountain Chicks or Indianapolis Hikers Club hike.
