12 Months - 12 Hikes Challenge Event Caches
January 1, 2024 - December 31, 2024



For the fourth year, the North Dakota Park & Recreation Department (NDPRD) has issued a statewide “12 Months – 12 Hikes” Challenge. To participate, just pick and hike one of the qualifying trails in one of the 14 participating state parks and recreation areas. You have the entire month to complete a hike. You can complete your hikes all in one park or explore any of 14 locations across the state.

New this year: the challenge is going mobile! There will be a fresh hiking challenge every season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) of 2024 through the new North Dakota State Park mobile app. Make it your goal to hike at least three trails each season. Download the OuterSpatial app from the Apple Store or Google Play

The North Dakota Geocaching Association (NDGCA) would like to help everyone complete the hiking challenge. To do this, we will be hosting an event in a different state park each month so we can get together with other geocachers. 

Note: You only need to download OuterSpatial app if you want to participate in the NDPRD challenge and be elgible for NRPRD prizes.

Event locations and dates are subject to change.
