Lower Connecticut River Land Trust Hiking Trail Challenge
Take the trail challenge. Can you hike in 19 different towns through the end of 2023?
The Lower Connecticut River Land Trust, in partnership with local land trusts and towns, challenges you to hike as many trails as you can in the Lower Connecticut River Region that are located in or that pass through our towns and preserves until December 31, 2023.
We challenge you to take at least one hike in each community. Save or print the List of Towns and Land Trusts and check them off as you complete each hike.
Visit the web links for each land trust and town to get information and maps for their trails.
When on your adventure, we encourage you to take a picture of the large maps posted at most trailheads with your cell phone before you hike.
When you have completed your adventure visit the trust’s website and fill out the online form.
Everyone who registers will be placed on the Wall of Champions.
- Be safe and have fun in the woods!
- Please help us with land stewardship and Carry In/Carry Out.
- Be sure to tell someone where you are hiking, especially if you are alone.
- Bring water and dress for the weather.
- Use protective measures against ticks. Ticks overwinter under leaf matter and are active above 45°.
- Wear bright clothing until January 31. Be aware of preserve closures for hunting.
All proceeds from the LCRLT Trail Challenge will benefit a stewardship fund dedicated to the care of the preserved land of the lower Connecticut River land trusts and communities.
