How do I create an account?
Click the 'Log In' button at the top of the page and then click 'Create new account' or click here. Adults can create a 'parent' account and add multiple 'child' profiles within that account. Each child profile will earn their own badges and prizes as they register their outdoor adventures. You can add new child profiles at any time from the 'My Journal' page.
How do I register an adventure?
Once you have finished your adventure on the trail, you can register in a few different ways.
- 'TRACK Your Adventure' button on the top navigation bar (Use this option if registering an adventure at a non-TRACK Trail)
- 'TRACK Your Adventure' buttons in the 'Adventure' section on the trail page of the TRACK Trail you visited
- After completing an e-Adventure, click the 'TRACK Your Adventure' button within the activity
No matter which way you start your registration, you will answer some questions about your adventure and then submit your registration. You can see your past registrations in your KIP Journal.
Do I have to go to an official TRACK Trail to participate?
No. You can register adventures at any park, trail, or greenspace (including your own backyard) and keep track of them in your journal. You will earn progress towards virtual badges but not physically mailed prizes.
How do I earn prizes?
You will earn progress towards prizes with every adventure you register. Every registered adventure will help you earn cool virtual badges that will display in your journal. If you register an adventure on an official TRACK Trail, you will have the option to earn physical prizes that will be mailed to your home. Learn more about the different prizes you can earn.
