Trail Passports

The new MLT Trail Passport program debuted during the summer of 2023. The Trail Passport is meant for children to complete with the help of a parent or guardian. Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick up your free Trail Passport booklet from the Children’s Section desk at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library
  2. Read through your booklet, review the instructions in the booklet, and look at all of the maps of MLT trails
  3. Pick a trail to start with. Bring a pencil/crayon and your water and hike to the ‘stamp stations’ located along the trails. *The stamp stations are shown on the maps inside your booklet!
  4. When you find a ‘stamp station’ use your pencil/crayon to make a rubbing of the stamp inside your Trail Passport
  5. Collect all 11 stamps!
  6. Once you’ve collected them all, tell us! When you show us your completed Trail Passport you will earn yourself a $10 giftcard to the Oxford Creamery in Mattapoisett!
