The Georges Highland Path, built and maintained by Georges River Land Trust, is a 40-mile system of “conservation trails” that gives hikers a unique look at the St. George River watershed. The goal of the Path is to help people forge a close relationship with the land and to develop an active interest in protecting this wonderful region. All proceeds from the golf tournament will be used to help maintain the Path as safe and enjoyable for hikers, including routine trail maintenance, new bog- and footbridges, parking lot improvements, and seasonal trails staff.

Organized in 1987, the Georges River Land Trust works to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education and outdoor experiences. The watershed extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clam flats and productive fishing grounds.
