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 LELT steward over 8,500 acres of land and 30+ miles of trail in the Lake Region.

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: WHAT IN THE LOON? Go find it! Our Loon 'mascot' will be located at 4 different locations on our preserves throughout the month of September. Check our Facebook page for hints! The first 10 people to submit a photo of themselves with the loon (accepting name suggestions) 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 bragging rights (and Good Life Market pie!) on three segments. Pleasant Mountain, Raymond Community Forest, and Bald Pate Mountain. Pick one, two, or all three!
