[ARCHIVED] "TAKE A HIKE" Weekend, Oct 16-18th was a success!

Take a Hike

As part of “TAKE A HIKE” Weekend, October 16-18, Portland Parks & Recreation joined MRPA to promote getting outside this fall and a chance to win a new bike! 

All you had to do was take a walk along our GREEN and/or BLUE TRAIL and try to find the five lobster signs we'd hidden along the way!  People we asked to take a photo of themselves finding all 5 lobsters and tag Portland PRF on Facebook or Instagram remembering  to use both hashtags: 

#findthelobster and #TakeAHikewithMRPA.

Our BLUE Trail brought you along a beautiful 1.5 mile walk along the ocean on the East End.

Our GREEN Trail brought you along Baxter Trail, a 2.5 mile walk starting at Back Cove and ending at Evergreen Cemetery.

We had a great turnout and it truly looked like people enjoyed their lobster hunts! We've loved seeing everyone's adventures! We will be picking a winner later this week, so stay tuned. While we are no longer accepting entries to win the bike, the lobster signs will remain up for people looking for a little adventure!

Enjoy the outdoors & FIND THE LOBSTER!!
