2024 STL Hiking Challenge Release
  The 2024 STL release on March 22, 2024 is a celebration of spring by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection’s State Parks and Public Outreach Division. Take the challenge to get outside for some fresh air and physical exercise. Hike and walk the highlighted locations/trails and take designated photos along the way to experience this year’s STL theme, CT State Forests. Fifteen State Forest locations will be identified for participants to explore, with varying scenery and highlights at each location. Did you know that there are 32 State Forests in CT and it is estimated that the forest covers between 57% and 60% of the land area in the State. Join this year's STL Hiking Challenge and visit approximately half of the State Forests in CT. Participants who hike or walk 10 of the 15 forest trails will receive a 2024 “Sky’s the Limit” hiking staff medallion and a certificate for their efforts. For hiking or walking all 15 locations, in addition to the medallion and certificate, 50 participants will have a chance to receive a hand-carved hiking staff made by the CT DEEP Sawyer from the DEEP Sawmill or from the CT Woodcarver's Association. Follow the DEEP CT State Parks Facebook and Instagram pages for information, @CTStateParks.
