Event Information

Designed as a one-day endurance event, the Trailblaze Challenge gives participants the opportunity to hike 28 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail in picturesque Big Bear, California. In additional to hiking, participants will also raise much needed funds to grant the wishes of children in San Diego! This is a hike, not a race and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts.

By participating and fundraising, you help bring the life-changing impact of a wish to children in our community who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. A wish experience can truly change a child's life, and you can help.
