Summit of Old Speck..way up there.
Summit of Old Speck..way up there.

The land trust has decided on our next hike…Old Speck in Grafton Notch.  This challenging yet awesome hike will run via the Appalachian Trail for a total roundtrip hike of 7.6 miles.  The summit elevation is 4,170 feet – the fifth highest summit in Maine and the highest in the Mahoosucs/Grafton Notch area.  Despite the warm winter and foretasted warm conditions for next week, we are expecting deep snow at higher elevations and icy spots throughout – snowshoes and traction aids for the ice are a necessity.

The date of the hike will be Saturday, March 12th at 8am.  We will meet in the Grafton Notch parking lot on the west side of Route 26 where the A.T. crosses the road.  You must RSVP for this hike by emailing us at info@matlt.org, calling 207-808-2073, or by RSVPing to the Facebook event listing.
