 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:




*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.


1. Prizes will be awarded to the top three team* and individual fundraisers; all registered hikers** are eligible for the draw prizes.

2. For every $50 raised, you will get one ticket entered in the raffle for draw prizes.

* Teams with more than ten participants are not eligible for team prizes. The individual participants will still be eligible for individual and draw prizes.

** All participants who pay or raise funds to hike are considered eligible fundraisers. An individual fundraiser can win an individual prize and be a winning team member. Plus, regardless of the source of your registration fee, all hiker participants are eligible for draw prizes. ECTA Staff and Board Members are not eligible for prizes.
