Our next group hike will be Saturday July 14th to Gulf Hagas – often referred to as the Grand Canyon of the East! The 8-9 mile loop hike via the Rim Trail includes a section of the Appalachian Trail before starting on the Gulf Hagas trails. This is a geologically fascinating area, rich in flora and fauna and indigenous history. If conditions are safe, swimming opportunities exist! Return hike will be via the tote road. There is a $10 fee to enter the KI-Jo Mary Forest where Gulf Hagas is located.
Carpools will be arranged from the Portland area meeting around 6:45 am with pickups in Augusta. Alternatively you can meet the group at the trailhead on Katahdin Iron Works Rd around 10:30 am. Please contact for more information.
Participants should wear hiking appropriate attire along with sturdy shoes. Additionally, hikers should plan on bringing at least 2 liters of water, snacks, rain gear (because you never know!), a flashlight and a backpack to keep everything in. Swimming attire is optional.
All participants must register online! Waivers will be distributed and signed on-site.
