Every year, the Maine Appalachian Trail Club hosts a hike for partner organizations who do work along Maine’s A.T. This year, there were attendees representing MATC, Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the National Park Service. The purpose of the hike is to get partners out on the A.T. for a day of catching up, seeing the trail, and mostly unwinding from a busy season in the field. This year the hike was up Little Boardman Mountain in the 100-Mile Wilderness, right in the KI-Jo Mary Forest. A spectacular area for outdoor recreation, there are several ponds near Little Boardman and the views from the top are pretty good. It was a great day in the field and a nice chance to reconnect with some good folks.
