Connecticut’s “The Sky’s the limit” hiking challenge includes fun and prizes

Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) recently announced a great opportunity to win prizes for hiking Connecticut’s high peaks as part of a new program – “The Sky’s the Limit” 2015 Hiking Challenge, designed to promote hiking in Connecticut’s state parks and forests throughout 2015.

“What a great way to spending time outdoors hiking Connecticut’s high peaks with family and friends and joining others in a friendly challenge to visit all 14 locations and win prizes along the way,” said Robert Klee, DEEP Commissioner. “Connecticut has hundreds of miles of hiking trails all over the state, ready for you to hike any season of the year.”

Participants can receive a medallion for hiking up 10 designated locations. For hiking up all 14 high peaks, 50 families will receive a hiking staff. Names will be drawn from all who completed the 14 designated hikes on January 1, 2016. Visit
