Three Peaks Challenge

Join us at Morrow Mountain State Park for the Three Peaks Challenge. This 7-mile hike with over 400 ft per peak in elevation gain is for experienced hikers only. The hike will lead you on Hattaway Mountain, Sugarloaf Mountain and finish on top of Morrow Mountain. The hike will begin at 7:30 am and you will have until 12 pm to complete the hike. The hike will begin at Hattaway Mountain trail entrance. Please park in the lower picnic area. There will be water fill up stations and fruit available at the museum, Sugarloaf/Morrow Mountain intersection and Shelter A. This hike can be done independently or in three person teams. The three person teams need to provide their own driving accommodations to and from each starting location. A 15-passenger van will be available at the top of Morrow Mountain to bring our challengers back to their vehicles.
