And the answer is… Lower Harbor Trail in the mainland portion of Acadia National Park in Winter Harbor on Schoodic Peninsula! (Takes a deep breath.) That was a tough one, guys. I don’t know how any of you got that. But you did! And the winner, drawn randomly from all who guessed the location correctly, is Carolyn Newbert from Rockland! Carolyn and her husband have been longtime players of this game, way before we even had a prize to give out. They guess right all the time. They’re major Maine hikers. Enjoy the $50 L.L.Bean gift card, you two! And thanks to everyone for playing.

Come on back next Monday to play again! And if you’re interested in visiting this great cross-country skiing and snowshoeing spot, stay tuned for the “1-minute ski” video, photos and write-up I’ll post this afternoon.

Here’s the original post:

The prize for this week’s “Where in the Woods” trail ID contest is a $50 gift card to L.L.Bean! A big thank you to Charlie’s for sponsoring this contest and making this awesome prize possible each week!

To enter the contest, all you have to do is guess what trail I hiked in Maine last week… One clue: it’s a fairly new trail.

Here’s how it works

The “Where in the Woods” game is simple. Look at the photo gallery at the bottom of this page, and based on the photos, guess where I am. Enter your best guess in the graphic right here:

Of the people who guess the trail correctly, we will randomly draw a winner for the L.L.Bean gift card, which will be sent to the winner in the mail right away!

I post this “Where in the Woods” Trail ID contest each Monday; and on Tuesdays, I reveal the answer and post a “1-minute hike” video and trail description of the hike (or snowshoe, ski or bike), including detailed driving directions so you can go have your own outdoor adventure. I like to mix it up. Sometimes I hike easy forest trails, other weeks you’ll see me atop some of Maine’s tallest mountains, and I try to travel all over the state.
