Century Hikers Club

The Century Hikers Club is an incentive program for adults (ages 14 and up) looking to get outdoors and enjoy the natural areas of McHenry County Conservation District. The club provides incentive for members to exercise and spend time outdoors, both of which are important aspects of physical and mental health and well-being.

Benefits of Membership
Members receive a hiking log to record miles hiked in Conservation District areas, rewards as hiking milestones are reached, and invitations to four staff-guided programs exclusively for Century Hikers Club members offered throughout the year.

Interested in hiking with a group?  Members in “The Trail Pack” communicate through a dedicated, private Facebook page to schedule group hikes. You must have a Facebook account to participate in this group.

Enrollment is easy! Once we process your enrollment you’ll receive your first log book and our trail maps to get you started. Sign up online, or download the enrollment form to sign up by mail or in person.
