HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN MOUNT TRASHMORE IS OPEN?

Mount Trashmore is built on a closed and capped landfill. The area is not a public park, and continues to be a regulated and permitted site. Our goal is to provide access but safety is our first priority. Access to Mount Trashmore is weather dependent. Check https://www.solidwasteagency.org/mount-trashmore for current trail conditions. 

Summer 2022 Access Schedule

  • Tuesday – Friday 9:00am-7:00pm
  • Saturday & Sunday 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Monday – Closed

Hours will be adjusted in the fall as the sun sets earlier. 

HOW WILL I TRACK HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE GONE UP MOUNT TRASHMORE?

As a participant you will have access to the web-based application. In order to track your trips you will need to check-in at the base and track your trip at the top of Mount Trashmore for every trip. Do not track your downward decent.

If for some reason you forgot to log a trip please go here to log your missed trip.

WHEN DOES THE CHALLENGE END?

The Challenge will go until Mount Trashmore closes for the season. The site normally closes around November 1st. This date is a moving target with weather being the ultimate factor.
