Chester Challenge offers hikers another test

October 19, 2016
By JUSTIN A. LEVINE - Outdoors Writer , Lake Placid News

Another hiking challenge has popped up in the Adirondacks, and this one offers a choice in which trails to take.

The Chester Challenge, which was announced last year, offers hikers the chance to choose from a number of destinations and trails. While based on eight hikes that all reside in the town of Chester, participants can choose to do just six of the trails in order to earn the Chester Challenge pin. There are six total destinations, but more than one trail to several of the destinations.
