Every year, the East Coast Trail Association organizes the Tely Hike fundraising and hiking event. It’s a big deal, lots of people and businesses attend, and this year it’s all happening in the town of Ferryland on June the 4th.

I’m a huge fan of ECTA, over the years I’ve encountered their maintenance crews many times and they’re always hard at work clearing fallen trees, blazing new trails, and upgrading the existing trails by repairing worn-out boardwalks, stairs, bridges and signs.

If you enjoy hiking the East Coast Trail as much as I do, please support ECTA by signing up for their fundraiser, they’re going to show you some great hiking trails in and around Ferryland:

If you’re unable to attend the event, that’s fine, you can support ECTA in other ways too, like becoming a member, volunteering, donating, or buying some of their Trail Shop products. If you want to help, everything you need to know is right here on their website.
