TREK TEN TRAILS

TREK TEN TRAILS



 Trek Ten Trails is a free web-based recreation program launched in 2007 that is designed to get families “off the couch” and outdoors to enjoy nature in Polk County’s many parks and nature preserves. Each cycle highlights different trails with new geocaches which can be located with or without a GPS unit. Trekkers choose 10 of the trails to hike and validate their game cards with self-inking stamps found in the geocaches. Hosted hikes are generally conducted in the fall and spring of each year with an annual celebration in November for those completing a game card.
