Lake George Land Conservancy Hike-A-Thon
The Lake George Land Conservancy’s annual Hike-A-Thon is a one-day event held each July 5th, created to showcase LGLC’s parks and preserves as free public resources, and to promote an appreciation for the outdoors and protecting the land that protects the lake. This is the 10th year for the Hike-A-Thon!
Hikes and paddles take place simultaneously at locations around Lake George, culminating with aerial photography of each group by helicopter. The event is free - organizers want everyone to be able to participate, regardless of financial means. Donations are gratefully accepted, however, and are used to run the event; any extra is put towards stewardship costs associated with the maintenance and enhancement of these properties.
The Hike-A-Thon remains a hybrid event, with group, in-person hikes and paddles, as well as a virtual option for those who are not at the lake or who aren’t able to join group activities yet because of safety or other concerns. It’s the best of both!
