About the Trailblaze Challenge

Trailblaze Challenge is a 22 or 2-mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Pinckney State Recreation Area - all in one amazing day! 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 Michigan with critical illnesses. A wish gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together and unites communities.

By supporting Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Michigan grant even more wishes this year.
