The Parkathon National Parks Virtual Challenge encourages individuals, families, and friends to safely enjoy the outdoors by exploring the trails of the 62 designated United States National Parks and all of the other National Monuments, National Historic Sites, National Recreation Areas, and other properties managed by the National Park Service.
Begin by taking inventory of all of the National Park properties that you've already visited. Then start making plans to visit one or more of the many other National Parks that you have yet to see! Earn a virtual badge for each National Park you have already visited, and earn more virtual badges when you visit more places and achieve various milestones!
