The Maine A.T. Land Trust’s Community Hikes program provides free guided hiking trips to the general public from May to October and then from January to March. There are typically two to three hikes per month (depending on weather) and trips are guided by trained trip leaders. The program has been enormously successful at bringing individuals to the A.T. landscape but they can fill up quickly! The limit for participants is usually 5-8 individuals. If a hike you would like to attend is currently filled up, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the waiting list. Summer hikes will be listed in May, winter hikes will be listed in December, so check back if you don’t see any!

Conservation in the Hundred Mile Wilderness and Moosehead Region
September 15, 2017 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Karin Tilberg, Deputy Executive Director of the Forest Society of Maine, and Simon Rucker, Executive Director of the Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust, will talk about the amazing array of conservation lands in the greater Moosehead Lake and Hundred Mile Wilderness Regions. Projects discussed will include: the Gulf Hagas/Whitecap/Pleasant River Initiative, which was completed at the end of 2016; earlier projects such as the Mount Kineo Land for Maine’s Future project, the protection of Big Spencer Mountain, the Seboomook and West Branch lands Forest Legacy projects, the Moosehead Region Conservation Easement, the Little W Project at the north end of Moosehead Lake; and many others. This incredible array of conservation, determination, devotion and generosity by so many individuals, organizations, and local, state and federal leaders has led to over one million acres of conservation, open lands, recreational trails, and ecological reserves to benefit us now and for future generations.
The program will be held in the gym of the former Monson elementary school. This is a cost-free event. We hope to see you there!
