Hike 100 Challenge - Highlights
This summer we did just that! Over 200 people registered for our Wings/DVCP Hike 100 Challenge where folks of all ages were encouraged to Hike 100 miles over the course of the summer. As a community we literally hiked thousands of miles, and got better acquainted with the natural resources we have so close to home. Although the challenge is over, the Hike 100 Deerfield Valley Facebook group will stay active. This is a great resource to find out about local hikes and day trips to keep us all moving throughout the fall! We are looking forward to a new challenge for Winter 2021, so stay tuned!
Hike in from the Primitive Trail in Wilmington and look for the yellow & blue mailbox hanging in the woods. Just beyond you will see them. The shortest route is from the trailhead at the bottom of Whites Road, it’s only about a mile, but pretty steep. They can also be reached by walking in from West Lake, but that is a longer trip. Bring a letter with your questions or pen and paper to leave a note once you’ve had a chance to meet them. If you include a return address, they will probably write you back! The mailbox accepts letters all year round.
