The Appalachian Trail Conservancy will open a new visitor center in Monson, Maine – located inside the Monson Community Center – today (June 20th). The center will have information on the trail in Maine, organizations that work on or around the A.T. and businesses in the area. The visitor center will be staffed and there will be plenty of goodies on hand like stickers, patches, maps, etc.
There will also be a kiosk in the space where hikers can learn about the new permitting system for Baxter State Park, and receive other information as they near the trail’s end atop Mount Katahdin. Stop by if you’re on the trail or in the area!
