The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) is once again organizing a #HikeCRCA Challenge this year, inviting individuals, groups, or families to spend some quality time together in nature, exploring the various trails at CRCA-owned conservation areas, and maybe even winning some great prizes.
The first step in the event is to hike the designated ‘challenge trail’ at each CRCA conservation area – which can be found at the CRCA’s Hike Challenge page – along with at least one ‘designated section’ of the CRCA-owned Cataraqui Trail and find the special challenge sign with the #HikeCRCA logo.
Then you take a ‘selfie’ with each of the challenge signs and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #HikeCRCA and its location included in the post.

The Family-Friendly Challenge is also returning for its second year, where families only has to visit four out of the nine locations and will be able to enter a draw for a special family challenge prize.
Along with the prize draws and the regular grand prize, there will also be draws for four CRCA annual passes, allowing entry to Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area in Kingston and Gould Lake Conservation Area in Sydenham.
