Trailblaze Challenge

The Trailblaze Challenge is a one-day endurance event that gives participants the opportunity to hike a 28-mile journey along the terrain of the Pacific Crest Trail. This is a hike, not a race and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.


Date: October 16-18, 2020 • Big Bear, CA

The Trailblaze Challenge provides participants with an opportunity for adventure, fun and fitness while making a direct impact on the lives of children in our community battling critical illnesses.

Included in your hike experience:
  • Specialized training program including a workout calendar and weekly group hikes
  • Support and coaching from experienced Hike Leaders and Make-A-Wish staff
  • Hotel Accommodations on hike weekend (3 days/2 nights)
  • Trailblaze Challenge duo-dry shirt for hike weekend
  • Friday night pasta party to carb load before the big day
  • Saturday evening post-hike celebration to share trail stories
  • Sunday post-hike recognition breakfast before heading home
  • Transportation to and from the Trail on Hike Day
