About the Trailblaze Challenge

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 26.2 mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of Bear Mountain - 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 Connecticut 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 Connecticut grant more than 100 wishes this year.
