Welcome to the 2017 Dolly Sods Wilderness Ultimate Hike

June 10, 2017 - 20.7 Miles (Shorter Distance Available)

About the CureSearch Ultimate Hike

You will hike 20.7 miles while you help raise money towards finding a cure for children's cancer, the #1 cause of death by disease in children.

The Dolly Sods Wilderness Ultimate Hike made its debut in 2013 and continues to receive rave reviews! The 17,371 acre Dolly Sods Wilderness is located in the beautiful Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia, and is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. It contains bog and heath eco-types, more commonly typical to southern Canada. The elevations range from 2,500-to over 4,700 feet. It also contains most of the Red Creek drainage-these unique ecological features make it unlike any of our other trails! Join us for 20.7 miles!

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.
