The Hiker’s Journey

Xtreme Hike takes hikers through some of the most picturesque trails in Dodgeville, Wisconsin to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. This year, our Wisconsin Chapter is excited to announce our event will take place Friday, October 4th - Sunday October 6th in beautiful Dodgeville, Wisconsin taking on the scenic trails of Governor Dodge State Park.

Our Xtreme Hike event is a long-distance, 30-mile hike that challenges participants to push their limits both physically and philanthropically. All hikers must meet or exceed a $2,500 fundraising minimum to be able to hike with us that weekend. This covers all hiker expenses for the weekend in this logistic heavy event including all accommodations, meals, beverages, hiker welcome items, hiker bag, etc.

Before hike weekend, we host several volunteer led practice hikes in varied locations in Southeastern Wisconsin as well as a Hiker Happy Hour Route Reveal. On Hike weekend, hikers will be led by volunteer hike guides on the trail, following national park standards, as they make their way from Bethel Horizons at our Start Line through the varied routes of Governor Dodge State Park in and out of caves, lookouts, waterfall, and a truly varied trail route. We include five rest stops hikers will encounter that are manned by additional volunteers that include an incredible amount of protein rich snacks, fresh fruit, lunch, drinks, and first aid/medical volunteers. We are proud to include additions and new items each year to our rest stops and to our event overall!

We are incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to bring together a dedicated group to this beautiful area, and sincerely want you there with us. This route, this weekend, this true comradery centers around hardworking individuals lie yourself who are dedicated to these 30 miles and beyond.
