The Healthy Kane County Coalition is putting on a 10-week rock hunting challenge. The “Rock the Trail Challenge” will begin June 4, and end on August 12. There will be a painted rock hidden on a local trail every week. Each week, the rock will be sponsored by a different local business or organization. Once a participant has found the rock, they will take it into that week’s business sponsor to pick up a prize, a $50 gift card or a prize of equal value.   

“We are so excited about this challenge”, says Lexie Little, Health Educator for the Southwest Utah Public Health Department. “Our goal is to get more local residents out on our trails; being physically active and enjoying the amazing area we live in.”

All clues, rules, updates and additional information will be posted on the Rock the Trail Challenge Facebook page (rockthetrailchallenge). Clues will also be posted in specific locations at that week’s sponsoring business.
