The next time you hike a hill, the city of San Luis Obispo wants you to whip out your iPhone.

Returning for a third year, the #PixOnPeaks Hiking Challenge encourages hikers to snap selfies or group photos at seven local peaks — and share them via Instagram with the hashtag #PixOnPeaks. (Participants should include hashtags for the locations of the shots as well.)

Once they’ve visited all seven spots, hikers can drop by the city Parks and Recreation Department office at 1341 Nipomo Street to pick up a free #PixOnPeaks hat.
