Benefiting Make-A-Wish® Oregon


The Trailblaze Challenge is a 26.3 mile hike where participants will tackle the terrain of Silver Falls State Park - all in one amazing weekend! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much needed funds to grant the wishes of children in Oregon and Southwest Washington with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities.

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Oregon grant more than 270 wishes this year.
