Places We Protect


Visit our Conservation Easement and Preserve links for descriptions of our current lands under protection.

Today, Loon Echo protects nearly 6,700 acres of land and manages 31 miles of trails that are available for walking, hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and in designated areas, motorized use. Visit our Conservation Easement and Preserve links for descriptions of our current lands under protection.

Preserve lands are owned by Loon Echo and are made available to the public. If there is a trail system on the property, a trail map and guide is posted on the corresponding preserve page. Conservation easements are privately owned property. While they are protected by Loon Echo, the owner manages the public use on the property.

Here’s something new for you.  Log in your trail experiences, keep track each time you hike one of our trails and help us with current trail conditions all at the same time.  Use the QR code or the Trail Log link below.  Bookmark the log book to make it easier to return.
