Trailblazer 2021

Apr 23-25

  • Admission$25 for Registration

Join us for our second annual Grand Canyon Conservancy Trailblazer event, starting Saturday, April 17, 2021. We are kicking off a week’s worth of crowd-funding and trailblazing to celebrate National Park Week.

Register for $25, set your fundraising goal, and then complete a walk, jog, hike, or bike ride between April 17-25, 2021 in your favorite National Park—or just in your neighborhood—to raise funds to help protect and preserve Grand Canyon National Park.

Share your journey and follow along live on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. Tag Grand Canyon Conservancy in your trailblazing photos and use #GCCTrailblazer in your posts to connect with fellow trailblazers and get featured on our channels.

Thanks to one of our generous retail partners, Wild Tribute, all registered Trailblazers will receive a commemorative Grand Canyon Conservancy Trailblazer t-shirt with their $25 registration (while supplies last).

The more money you raise, the more prizes you can earn:

  • Be a Bright Angel Trailblazer and raise $100 – you receive a Trailblazer sticker
  • Be a South Kaibab Trailblazer and raise $250 – you receive the sticker plus a Trailblazer patch
  • Be a North Kaibab Trailblazer and raise $500 – you receive the sticker, patch, and a Grand Canyon Map Bana
  • Be a Rim-to-Rim Trailblazer and raise $1,000 – you receive the sticker, patch, bana, and Trails Forever hat

Want to get away from...everything? Four Peaks has partnered with Boho Camper Vans to give away an all-inclusive, four-day van excursion in a camper van loaded with beer, gas money, and everything else you might need to quench your thirst for adventure to the grand prize Trailblazer.

As you Trailblaze from wherever you choose, we will be sharing views and videos as if you were hiking at Grand Canyon National Park.
