Year of the Wood Frog! 

This year the Wild Hikes Challenge is the Year of the Wood frog. You’ll notice a frog symbol on several hikes - this denotes areas that include Wood frog habitat. On those hikes we’ve also included a Wood frog fact to help you learn more about this year’s special species. Complete 8 of these trails to earn rewards!

Our Foundation makes it possible to provide the Wild Hikes Challenge rewards. Many of our hiking staffs are hand-hewn by Hiram Farm staff in Hiram Township or supplied by Camp Asbury and hewn by Portage Park District volunteers. 


DISCLAIMER: Forms may contain outdated information, for reference - always check the kiosk for park map and information before you hike. If the medallion has no link below - it is because we no longer have stock in those medallions. You can still complete that year's challenge, but would not be able to receive the reward.
