We’re bringing back our weekly SUP paddles for our 2019 season! Starting on June 6 our staff will lead an early morning paddle from our site at the East End Beach every Thursday. It’s free to join with your own board or just $15 to rent one from us ($10 off the usual rate).
This weekly gathering is a casual paddle open to anyone with some SUP experience who feels comfortable and confident on a board. This isn’t a guided trip, so everyone is responsible for their own safety and it’s not a good fit for total novices. That said, our staff are happy to share their knowledge of the sport and offer tips and support. The group will stay on the water for about an hour and will pick a destination that fits the conditions and participants.
A note about weather: If we need to cancel a weekly paddle due to weather conditions we will post an update on our Meetup page and on Facebook.
Join us Thursday nights from May-September as we partner with L.L.Bean for our weekly Bike & Brew rides. The 22- mile route begins and ends at Maine Beer Company, and is a self-supported, moderate skill group ride through the back roads of Freeport, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, and Pownal. Check in at Maine Beer Company between 4:30-5:15(you will need to fill out 2 waivers-only need to do this once), the ride leaves around 5:15, and is followed by a beer on your return.
June 21, 2019 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Bald Pate Mountain
Join us for the annual Summer Solstice Hike up the Bob Chase Trail at Bald Pate Mountain. Meet at the main parking area off of Rt 107 at 5:00 PM. This annual trek has been a Loon Echo tradition for 20 years. It’s a fun way to welcome summer’s arrival and remember one of Loon Echo’s founders, Bob Chase! Feel free to share music, poems or stories that embody the spirit of the day. Sturdy hiking boots or shoes, water and snacks are always encouraged. Approximately 2 hours. Easy to moderate
Paces for PAWS is a dog friendly event so please bring your best canine companions to participate in the festivities (don’t forget leashes, please)! With this event, we hope to provide an opportunity for people of all ages in our community to help homeless and abandoned animals receive the medical care, shelter and companionship they need until their forever homes are found.
Event check-in will begin at 7:30 AM, with the 5k Race beginning at 8:30 AM. If running isn’t your thing, you can still join in on the fun! The 1 mile Family Fun Pledge Walk will begin at 9:30 AM (please arrive for check-in by 9:00 AM). Walk with your dogs, kids or friends; come out in silly hats or costumes; make it your own and most importantly, have some fun!
Come join us! Enjoy the outdoors with your 2 & 4 legged friends and support a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there!
