THIS ACTIVITY IS NOW CLOSED.
Download the PawSwap App and upgrade to PawSwap Premium in order to play and unlock this challenge for you and your pup! The challenge begins on January 7 and runs until January 31, 2021. Tip: You can join at any time during the month of January!
Visit as many hikes and trails - shown as beacons on the PawSwap map - as you can, and collect your Points when you complete them. The most active pup and human team with the most points win! Tip: Tap on the beacon when you’re in proximity of the hike’s location, followed by the ‘Collect Points’ button.
All hikes and trails will have the same Point value, except for our 3 Triple Point Hikes and Trails, which will be worth 3x the Points. The Triple Point locations will change every week, so keep an eye on your map. You can also follow @PawSwapApp on Instagram for more ways to earn Points towards your total score. Tip: Points for the same hike or trail can only be collected once every 24 hours, so change things up if yesterday's time overlaps!

Are there rules I should know about?
The hikes and trails challenge is designed to encourage dog owners to get outside with their dogs and complete hikes and trails listed on the PawSwap app. Therefore, in order to earn Leaderboard Points, hikes and trails must be completed by participants. Driving to locations for the sole purpose of obtaining Points without completing a hike or trail, or any other method of falsely claiming Points will not be approved and will not count towards a participant's total score. PawSwap has the right to disqualify any participant found to be in breach of the above terms, or adjust Points as necessary to reflect the number of trails completed
