National Trails Day 2023

National Trails day is on Saturday, June 3rd! Trails are so important to our communities. Trails are worthy of celebration and investment, and we must ensure our trails are safe and welcoming to all. Do you love LELT trails? Shout it from the mountaintops! Want more trails? Get involved:



  • Please consider a donation to support trail maintenance and construction in the Lake Region of Maine. It costs tens of thousands of dollars every year to care for our trails. Every dollar counts!
  • Donate Now!




  • Share why you love trails! What does it mean to you to have access to trails close by? How has time on the trails helped you this past year? Post your favorite LELT trail on social media and tag us!
  • Write an op-ed to your local newspaper about why you love & value trails.


  • Contact your state elected officials (House, Senate) and encourage them to support funding for conservation and trails in Maine. Maine’s conservation funding program, Land for Maine’s Future, hasn’t been funded in over a decade. There is minimal public funding available for stewardship of our lands and trails. This means all conservation work, and the costs of caring for lands and trails in Maine, relies on private donations. Maine’s economy runs on our abundant natural resources and access to the outdoors, we need to invest in them.
