 2023 East Coast Trail Trail Raiser Community Hike



On International Trails Day, June 3, we are back for the annual Trail Raiser Community Hike in Pouch Cove, presented by Trail Raiser Event Champion ExxonMobil and supported by adventure sponsor, The Outfitters and community sponsor, the Town of Pouch Cove! 


Rally up a team of friends, family, coworkers, or just use your own two feet and join us in celebrating the East Coast Trail - a trail network that we all love and appreciate as a resource in our province!

Come Hike and Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal! 

We are targeting a fundraising goal of $100,000 to help:



Register and raise $200 by 11:59 pm NST on May 26 and be entered for a chance to win a weekend at Points East Guesthouse in Pouch Cove. Every who has raised $200 will receive one draw entry for the early bird prize. Winner announced May 29.

The prize includes a Friday and Saturday night stay at Points East Guesthouse, with two breakfasts and one supper included. Points East is a renovated, cozy fisherman's oceanfront house with beautiful panoramic views located in the picturesque outport of Pouch Cove.



*There will be a shuttle bus bringing participants from the Post-Hike Party at the All Saints Anglican Church Hall back to their vehicles at the Pouch Cove Lion's Club. 

Hiking Challenge

There are six great hikes and two trail runs to choose from (click on each photo to learn more):


*No pets at the Trail Raiser, please. The heavy concentration of hikers poses a safety concern for both people and pets. The buses and Church Hall cannot accomodate pets either, so please leave pets safely at home. Thank you for your cooperation. Registered service animals are welcome.
