The answer is… Long Cove Headwaters Preserve in Searsport. And the winner, drawn randomly from all who guessed the location correctly, is Carley Hatt of Camden! Enjoy the $50 L.L.Bean gift card, Carley! And thanks to everyone for playing.

Come on back next Monday to play again! And if you’re interested in joining Oreo and me on this quiet trail network in the midcoast area, stay tuned for the “1-minute hike” 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 where in Waldo County I hiked last week with my dog, Oreo. This week I’m giving you the county because it’s very difficult to guess this trail network based on photos (especially with snow covering so many trail features). And here’s another clue: This trail network includes two loop trails.

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.
