take the challenge
THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA SIX-PACK OF PEAKS CHALLENGE is a self-guided hiking challenge that takes you up six iconic peaks in Northern California.
Explore new mountains, test your limits, and level up your outdoor experience. Expand the boundaries of what you are capable of, all while helping support outdoor non-profits.
Complete the hikes in six months, six weeks or six days. You set the schedule that works best for you. The hikes start easier and work up to longer and more challenging climbs.
The mountains begin lower with the steep Black Butte, graduating to longer more challenging peaks, culminating with climbs to the 10,443′ Helen Lake on Mount Shasta and the 10,457′ Lassen Peak.
There are seven peaks to choose from — pick any six to complete the challenge or hike them all.
Early-bird registration begins at $40. Learn what's included with registration.
Looking for the old Northern California Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge? Beginning in 2023, the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge centered around the Bay Area was renamed as the San Francisco Bay Area Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge.
