Exploring Roots: Summer Adventure Challenge
Rules and Details

Register for the 2022 Summer Adventure Challenge! Starting in June, you can register for the challenge at Hidden Valley Park  at www.exploringroots.org, and be sure to register each individual that is completing the challenge. Once registered, each participant is entered for the chance to win one of the grand prize packages. Every month there’s a new trail and new prizes, so you do need to register every month if you want to win the grand prize.


Plan your visit to hike each month’s featured trail. The best part about the Summer Adventure Challenge is that it is all about what works best for YOU. Bring the family or hike solo. Reschedule in case of rain. Hit the trails bright and early, or make it a plan for after work. 


There will be a Summer Adventure Challenge sign at the beginning of every trail to mark where you start, then small signs throughout the trail to guide you. At the end of the trail you’ll find the keychains you need to win prizes! Keychains can be found at 3 different points along the trail, just hike to the distance that is most comfortable for you! Take only ONE keychain from the sign of your choice. Make sure to take pictures and don’t forget your bug spray!  


Prizes can be picked up at various locations. Find where you can pick up your prize at www.exploringroots.org/events. You will receive a patch designed and donated by local Girl Scout and Kansas City trail expert, TakeAHikeKC. You’ll also get to choose one of the three prizes available that month. When you pick up your prizes, sign in to mark your accomplishment and you’ll get a second entry into our grand prize drawing. 


Participants can pick up their prizes 1 week after the end of the month. For instance, did you hike on June 30? You have until July 8 to pick up your prizes.  Grand prize winners will be chosen and contacted the same day prize pickups close.
