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. 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.

How to Play
Review the current list of trail factsheets. Trekkers choose trails to hike and validate their game cards. Get 10 different stamps on your game card by using the self-inking stamp in the geocache. The trail factsheets include instructions on how to find the geocache with or without a GPS. Game cards are available at all Polk County libraries and Circle B Bar Reserve or can be downloaded here.
