Lopez Community Trails Network is celebrating its tenth year of creating hiking, biking and equestrian trails throughout Lopez Island. LCTN is holding its seventh annual Lopez Walkabout, a hike the entire length of Lopez Island, mostly off roads.
This year’s Walkabout is on Sept. 21 and 22. Hikers may choose to hike over two days or hike the entire 18.8 miles in just one day. Information about joining LCTN and the Lopez Walkabout is at LopezTrails.org or by emailing info@LopezTrails.org.
The hike passes through 21 private and 5 public properties. This year there are two new trails, and two trail modifications which improve the view and increase off-road hiking. As more participants experience the pleasure of hiking this route, LCTN hopes hikers and owners will join to expand new trail connections, making possible connections to all locations on Lopez.
