Take a break from Black Friday shopping with REI’s #OptOutside movement where participants can choose from a scavenger hunt in Mercer Meadows and a challenging hike at Baldpate Mountain.

"TRAIL MIX" Biking Event, Lawrence Hopewell Trail

Friday November 24, 2017
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Lawrence Hopewell Trail is partnering with REI Co-op on REI's Black Friday #OptOutside campaign. On Friday, November 24 LHT's Trail Mix event is comprised of four recommended routes for trail users, family, friends, new and old, to meet up and walk, run or bike together.

For the last two years, REI Co-op has shut down on Black Friday and paid its employees to get outside. In the world of retail, it's a controversial move. Instead of driving sales, REI takes a breath in a busy world, to regroup and enjoy precious time outside with friends and family. REI believes this effort can play an important role in bringing people together to celebrate the outdoors to life and share time together regardless of background or belief.

Participants can coordinate with each other using the Lawrence Hopewell Trail's Facebook event pages to meet up with friends who share their enthusiasm for the outdoors and the LHT. The four routes selected for this year's Trail Mix event differ in length to accommodate the interests of participants. They are: Mercer Meadows-Rosedale Park, Carson Road Woods, Village Park and Maidenhead Meadows Park.
