The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy’s Virtual Hiking Challenge is back with a call to complete 60 miles of trail in 60 days, kicking off New Year’s Day. 

To complete the challenge, participants must walk, run or hike 60 miles by March 1. Registration ends Feb. 1, but earlier registration means more time to log the miles. 

Participants will receive informative emails with suggestions for great places to hike in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, including recommendations on lands that SAHC has protected. All participants will receive Hiking Challenge patches when the challenge ends, as well as coupons and entry tickets for a raffle to win a certificate for two people to cave, climb or raft through USA Raft. 

Cost is $25. Sign up at
