Trek for the Trails 2022
‘Trek for the Trails’ is a month-long virtual event to support Loon Echo’s 30 mile (and growing!) trail network in the Lake Region. Get outside, give back, win prizes!
Trek for the Trails is Loon Echo Land Trust’s largest annual fundraising event. Funds raised from the Trek help Loon Echo steward over 8,500 acres of land and 30+ miles of trail in the Lake Region.
The 2022 Trek for the Trails is presented by Norway Savings Bank.
How to Participate
1. Trek Anywhere
You can make your “Trek” by visiting any LELT preserve between September 1st and September 30th. That means even a drive up to Hacker’s Hill makes you a Trekker!
New this Year: Find the Loon. Our Loon Mascot will be located at 4 different locations on our Preserves throughout the month of September. The first 10 people to submit a photo of themselves with the Loon in all 4 locations will win a Cotopaxi Fanny Pack courtesy of Ski Hot Ski Shop.
2. Trail Run Challenge
Feeling a competitive? Up for a challenge? Join the Trek for the Trails club on Strava and compete for Strava bragging rights (and Good Life Market pie!) on three Strava segments. The segments are on Pleasant Mountain, Raymond Community Forest, and Bald Pate Mountain. Pick one, two, or all three to run! Note: You may run the segments as many times as you'd like during September.
The fee for registering is $20/Adult. Youth 16 and under are FREE with a registered adult. Trekkers are encouraged to raise money from friends and family to support their Trek and LELT trails! For each $20 raised, Trekkers will earn a raffle ticket to be entered into a raffle for prizes. Trekkers can create a fundraising page when they register for the Trek.**Please note, fundraising is encouraged, but not required for participation**
All trekkers are entered into our raffle to win prizes. Prizes include: 2022-2023 Season's Pass to Shawnee Peak, Bridgton Books Gift Cards, Two-night stay at Pleasant Mountain Camping, run coaching session from Canyon Wren Coaching, Ski Hot Ski Shop apparel, LELT hats and more!
