  • Annual WildlandsTrail Run

    October 23, 2022

    The Wildlands Trail Run is a fundraiser for Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust. GPMCT is a nonprofit land trust that connects people by conserving open spaces and creating trail systems, providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, and protecting wildlife habitats in coastal Hancock County, Maine. Race day registration ends at 10:00 am sharp. The 6.3-mile race begins at 11:00 and the 2-mile race begins at 11:15 am.

    The 6.3-mile course is on gravel roads and single track trail, with lovely views and plenty of roots, rocks, and mud. The total climb is approximately 1,200 feet. The two-miler goes out and back on a gravel road.

    Enter through the Wildlands South Gate in Orland on Rte. 1, near the Rte. 176 intersection (1574 Acadia Highway on your GPS).

    You will drive in about a mile on a gravel road. When you see cars parked along the road, please park on either side of the road. Then walk down to the Start/Finish at Hillside Trail. Please check in at the Registration Table on the left. All runners will need to sign a waiver, pre-registered or not.

    We will have vegetarian chili, and cider for you after the run.

    Thanks so much for supporting the Trust and see you on RACE DAY!
