The 17th annual Loon Echo Trek is the largest event benefiting the Loon Echo Land Trust! Proceeds from the event and sponsorship help us in our mission to conserve land for future generations. 

 The 2017 Trek will take place on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Shawnee Peak Ski Area in Bridgton, ME. Hike 4.5 or 6 miles across the ridge line of beautiful Pleasant Mountain, or bike 25, 50, 80 or 100 miles through the scenic hills and valleys of western Maine. Do a bit of both with the Trek's Hike & Bike option! New! This year we have added a Time Trial segment!
