Welcome to the 2016 Lone Star Trail Ultimate Hike

October 22, 2016 - 22.7 Miles

About the CureSearch Ultimate Hike

You will hike 22.7 miles of the Lone Star Trail while you help raise money towards finding a cure for children's cancer, the #1 cause of death by disease in children.

The Lone Star Trail is the longest wilderness footpath in the great state of Texas, and we can't wait to be back on it in 2016. The warm climate means that you can find beautiful pops of color in the forms of flowers and other vegetation and fungi year round. It's our flattest course, which sets beginners up for success and allows avid Hikers to log great times on our 22.7 mile trek.

What's Included In My Experience?

Our Traditional Ultimate Hike is more than a hike - it's a weekend adventure, an achievement of a lifetime, and a chance to find cures for cancer's youngest fighters. Due to our unique venues, no two hikes are the same, and you should discuss specifics with your staff member. All of our hikes include the basics you need for a successful weekend, lot of surprises, tons of trail support, and access to an online portal with an industry leading collection of resources to ensure you reach your goals! It's hard to capture the weekend in words, so we recommend you check out our Hike Weekend video!

How Will I Reach My Goals?

At registration, each hiker is provided their own online fundraising and training portal with everything you need for hiking and fundraising success. In addition, a fully equipped support team will be with you every step of the way, from volunteers to coaches to staff, and our Ultimate Heroes - families who have elected to share their personal children's cancer journeys to inspire you if the going gets tough, and to help your supporters understand why Ultimate Hike is so important. Visit our Ultimate Heroes here.
