Trek for the


LELT's largest annual fundraising event

About Trek for the Trails

Community members and trail users of all ages and abilities are invited to ‘Trek for the Trails.’  The Trek 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.


Registration for the 2022 Trek for the Trails will open in May 2022.

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!

2. Passport

Visit four LELT preserves and stamp your passport or take a selfie on the trail! A great way to motivate yourself to keep getting outside and discover new places.

3. Trail Run Challenge

Feeling a competitive? Up for a challenge? Compete for Strava bragging rights on 3 Strava segments. Runners will be timed via a Strava segment on Pleasant Mountain, Raymond Community Forest, and Bald Pate Mountain. Pick one, two, or all three!
