Join the Challenge

The Utah Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge is a self-paced hiking and trail running challenge up six iconic mountains easily reached from Salt Lake City. 

You choose whether you want to complete them in six days, six weeks, or take the entire year. Set the schedule that works best for you. 

You can climb them in order as you build your strength and endurance, or mix it up. The choice is yours. Your registration will help support Big City Mountaineers, so you'll be doing good for others with each peak you climb.
