Ghost Trail

Did you take part in our Lion Trail Easter Challenge? Now we aim to spook you with our family friendly Halloween Ghost Trail! With the aid of your phone’s location tracking find places where ghost sightings have been reported and where legends and mysteries abound. Find all of the 13 Ghost Points (clicking on a Ghost icon shows the number and why the spot is ghostly!). You may be asked to answer a question about some sites, so take a pencil and paper and keep your wits about you! After you have visited all of them, please send us an email with your answers to the haunted house (we’ll tell you where after you sign up) and a Halloween prize will be yours! The trail is approximately 4 miles long but does not need to be completed in one go.

Sign up below between 11th and 31st October and you should receive a confirmation email with a GoogleMaps link and clue sheet within 48 hours. If you don’t receive a confirmation email, please send a message to trail@harpenden-lions.co.uk quoting your Transaction or PayPal reference.

Follow the trail in your own time and send us your answers by Friday 5th November to win a Halloween Prize (one prize per entry). Entries cost £5.

Harpenden Lion Trail Easter Challenge – Thank You

Our thanks to everyone (more than 150 people) who took part in the Harpenden Lion Trail Easter Challenge, which raised over £900 towards our Life Skills Programme for Children and Young People. The participants who completed the Challenge were rewarded with Easter Eggs donated by the members of Harpenden Lions Club and we received lots of messages saying how enjoyable the Lion Trail was. For those who were not able to complete the Trail and send us their answers before the closing date, a complete list of answers can be found here.

The Easter Eggs that were not claimed by Trail participants will be donated to local good causes.

Harpenden Lion Trail Easter Challenge

Families – here’s something a little different as we head towards Easter – sign up to the Lion Trail Easter Challenge and with the aid of your phone’s location tracking, find answers to the 20 clues at the locations marked by a lion (clicking on a Lion icon shows the clue number and the clue).
The route is approximately 6.5 km and you can start and finish at any point.  Allow 2 – 2 ½ hours, but you do not have to complete the trail in a single session.

Sign up here between 8th and 30th March to receive the GoogleMaps link and clue sheet. Follow the trail in your own time and send us your answers by Monday 5th April to win an egg (one egg per entry). Entries cost £5.

Please note the following:
• You are welcome to sign up to follow the Lion Trail after 30 March (and before 5 April). However, although we will do our best, we cannot guarantee the availability of Easter Eggs for these later bookings.
• Easter Eggs will be delivered to the doorstep of homes in Harpenden. For those living elsewhere, Easter Eggs will be made available for collection from one of our Harpenden Lions.
• The answers to the clues will be published on the Harpenden Lions Club website after Easter.
