The Lopez Walkabout is an annual hike the full length of Lopez Island over a weekend in September, this year the 21st and 22nd. We stay off the roadways as much as possible crossing public and private (with permission) lands. It is a private event open to members (just sign up below). We hike through woods and pastures in groups over two days. One group will do it in one day. Runners are invited as well.
This will be our 7th Walkabout. We hope that we are able to demonstrate the benefits of trails connecting our island. To that end, last year the route from the Ferry to the Village was opened to the public for a period of 30 days. Property owners and walkers rated this Trail Trial as “strongly positive.” We hope to consolidate the trial into a permanent route in the near future.
