Take on the challenge of


The “Hike It All Challenge” is great for all ages

In the summer of 2019, a handful of kids hiked all 35+ miles of trails on Beaver Brook’s Hollis properties during a week of summer camp. Word spread about this accomplishment and soon many others were hoping they too could earn the distinction of having “Hiked it All” at Beaver Brook. Now with a simple guide created along with some fun and unique commemorative BBA gifts, we’ve introduced the challenge to the community.  Over a hundred people have completed the Hike it All Challenge!

Step 1: Become a member of Beaver Brook. Your membership helps to pay for the maintenance of the trails, the trailhead parking lots, and print maps and signs on the over 35 miles of trails that we manage.

Step 2: Download a map and your trail checklist.

Step 3: Start hiking! See US Forest Service’s “Know Before You Go” list for recommended preparations and gear. Mark the trails you walked and the dates you completed them using the trail checklist sheet.

Step 4: Return your finished list to the Beaver Brook office at 117 Ridge Road or by email to info@bbanature.org. Your name will be added to the official list of “Beaver Book Hike It All Finishers”!
