20 Mile Challenge
Hike 20 miles of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve trail system!
We are working to encourage Capital Region residents to become part of a community that protects the unique habitat at the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. We help people get out to enjoy nature and seize opportunities to engage and participate in local learning and scientific research.
As part of this effort, we've created the 20 Mile Challenge. People are asked to hike 20 miles of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve trail system and enjoy the full range of landscapes, flora, and fauna that the globally rare pine barrens has to offer.
Participants can walk the trails on their own and/or join the Friends on a MeetUp walk. Walks will be hosted once a month by the Friends. Upon completing the challenge, you can claim a reward at the Discovery Center Gift Shop.
