The Forest Preserve District of Will County Triple Crown Hiking Challenge for ages 10 or older, sponsored by The Nature Foundation of Will County, begins on March 1 and ends on June 30. Participants must hike the 22-mile Wauponsee Glacial Trail, 14 miles of Old Plank Road Trail, in Will County, and 13 miles of the I&M Canal State Trail from McKinley Woods to Brandon Road.

Each trail can be hiked its entire length at one time or completed in segments. Those that complete the challenge will earn a commemorative item. Submission requirements include a selfie or landscape photo on each of the three trails.
