LOPEZ COMMUNITY TRAILS NETWORK FERRY TO VILLAGE TRAIL TRIAL FOR ALL OF OCTOBER, 2018 - PLEASE JOIN US

LCTN exists to create hiking, biking and equestrian trails connecting all of Lopez. We have created this Trail Trial from the Walkabout we hold each year. The Trail Trial is open to the public for the month of October. It’s an experiment and its success will depend upon gathering information about the event and comments from hikers and landowners. 7 private properties are a part of the Trail Trial and the owners have agreed to give permission for the public to cross their lands. We thank them.

Your part is to enjoy the hike, be respectful, observant and offer your insights so we may learn how best to enlarge our trails network on Lopez.

START AT EITHER END OF THE TRAIL: PENNY LANE BY THE FERRY TERMINAL OR THE FIRST TURN IN FISHERMAN BAY ROAD GOING NORTH FROM THE VILLAGE.

IT’S ABOUT 5 MILES AND TAKES LESS THAN 2 HOURS AT AVERAGE WALKING SPEED

PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF OUR GRACIOUS PROPERTY OWNER LANDS.

FOLLOW THE SIGNS • LEAVE NO TRACE - TAKE YOUR TRASH

STAY ON TRAIL • LEAVE GATES AS YOU FOUND THEM

DO NOT APPROACH ANIMALS • PLEASE NO PETS

WE NEED YOUR OPINIONS, THERE ARE POSTCARDS ALONG THE TRAIL OR GO TO THIS WEBSITE AND LEAVE COMMENTS

THANKS FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION

VISIT US AT THE FARMER'S MARKET THIS SUMMER

We will be at the Lopez Farmers Market most Saturdays this Summer from 10:00 to 2:00 so come visit our booth.  We will have information about the trails on Lopez Island and also have info about the Bureau of Land Management, the Land Bank, the Preservation Trust, Lopez Island Conservation Corps, Friends of Lopez Hill, San Juan County Parks and WA State Parks. If we aren't there we may be out hiking (see the GO TAKE A HIKE! page) or on our annual WALKABOUT.  But in any case, get out there and bike & hike! 

WALKABOUT 2016

Despite some wet weather (hence fewer walkers) the 2016 Walkabout was a great success. The folks below are the one-day crew who walked the 17.66 miles in 7 hours 14 minutes.  Another group did the walk on two consecutive days.  Congratulations to all that participated and “Thanks” to everyone who contributed to make the Walkabout a success.
