The Maine West initiative is challenging you, your friends, and your neighbors to get out for the greater good. Help our community address the increase in hunger caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join the Second Nature Adventure Challenge and log trails listed on MTF in the Maine West region between July 17 and Indigenous People's Day (October 12) to contribute to the community total. Once community members log 300 collective trails, Maine West will contribute at least $6,000* to three food pantries serving the Bethel, Oxford Hills and River Valley areas: Bethel Food Pantry, Servant's Heart Food Pantry and the Agnes Gray Elementary School Food Pantry.
All trails listed on Maine Trail Finder in the Maine West region are part of the challenge! A relaxed walk on a paved river path. A rugged mountain hike. A bike ride or a paddle. You can even log the same trail more than once if you have a favorite for your morning walk or run. The trail just has to be in the Maine West region (most of northern Oxford County) and on Maine Trail Finder to count!
It’s being out in nature and on the trail that counts – no matter your ability.
Always remember to #recreateresponsibly!
