Jingle Hike Challenge 2022

Jingle Hike Challenge 2022

Throughout Metro East (12 Locations)

  • Admission: $25

The Heartlands Conservancy Jingle Hike Challenge is back this year in holiday style! Jingle bells will be tied to 12 trees in parks throughout the Metro East from Thanksgiving Day to New Year’s Day. Participants are asked to visit as many parks as they can, take a photo with the bell, and submit the photo evidence using our tracking system. For every entry, you will be entered to win prizes. Bonus entries are awarded for every correct tree identification.

All are welcome to participate! However, you must be a registered (paying) participant to be eligible for Jingle Hike's amazing prizes! Each submission enters you into a prize drawing. You must be registered and 18 or older to win. If you find 6 bells or more, you will be entered to win the grand prize!

Jingle Hike tickets are $25 per person and include a t-shirt, printed map with instructions, bib entry number, and the chance to win great prizes. Want to participate but don't need the shirt? You can optionally decline the JHC2022 t-shirt during registration. New this year- get the Jingle Hike Challenge 2022 hoodie!

All purchases and Jingle Hike Challenge packets can be picked up during Jingle Mingle, November 17 from 5 PM - 8 PM at HeartLands Conservancy in Belleville, IL. If you are unable to attend packet pick-up, please select shipping during registration. You must register by November 1 to get your t-shirt. (You can still register after November 1, but you will not receive a t-shirt).
