Reach the Peaks

The Reach the Peaks Challenge is the premier hiking and trail running challenge in North Carolina. The event began in 2013 and has seen 8 successful years through rain, shine, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Each year offers a strenuous, world-class trail route through Hanging Rock State Park which is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We look forward to bringing you a fun and challenging experience each year!

Sunset over Hanging Rock

The trail route is not the same every year, but always includes the 5 major peaks in Hanging Rock State Park: Hanging Rock, Wolf Rock, House Rock, Cook’s Wall, and Moore’s Knob. The route is usually between 10 and 12 miles long.
