Launch of Trail Raiser Community Hike

After Hurricane Larry, our trail crews hiked all 25 paths to conduct tree counts & assess the damage. While the East Coast Trail is open and passable, there’s about 2500 trees blocking or leaning over many of the paths. Clean up has already begun, but we need your help!

Our fundraiser, the Trail Raiser Community Hike, is focused on raising enough money to cover the costs of the damage from Hurricane Larry. Whether it’s $5, $50 or $500, consider showing your #ECTLove and registering or donating.??Learn more here.

Come Hike and Fundraise With Us

Rally up a team of friends, family, coworkers, or just your own two feet. This is our first in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic and our goal is to raise $50,000 to help recover from Hurricane Larry and maintain, enhance, and protect the East Coast Trail.
