2023 Celebration of Trails: Summer Star Hike Challenge



Join BYLT for our 1st Annual Summer Star Hike Challenge 

A Fundraiser for Bear Yuba Land Trust Trails

How it works:

There will be 15 hidden  stars hanging from trees on 12 of Bear Yuba Land Trust’s hiking trails. Use the Star Map and visit as many different star locations as possible from June 1st- June 21st to be entered to win exciting prizes and celebrate your local trails!

Entry Rules:

  1. Visit as many of the trail locations as you can and find the trees with hanging stars
  2. Scan the QR code and fill in your information on the form to submit your entry. Each star you find and submit = one entry. (If you do not have service, take a photo of the QR code and you can place your entry when you return to an area with service)
  3. The more stars you find the greater your chances to win!
  4. Entries will be accepted until midnight on June 21st any entries after this time will not be counted

To win bonus entries into the prize drawings:

  1. Take a selfie with each star and tag BYLT with #summerstarhikechallenge
    (participant’s social media account must be set to public or we will not be able to see your tagged photos)
  2. Correctly I.D. each tree species that the stars are hanging from when you submit your entry form.
