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!

Great Maine Outdoor WEEK Hike – CANCELLED
February 11, 2018 from 8:30 am - 5:00 pmFree
The latest land trust community hike for the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend will be up Old Speck in Grafton Notch! The cold weather foiled us a few weeks ago so we’re doing in again. 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. It might be warm weather right now but snowshoes and traction aids for the ice are a necessity for this trip! The date of the hike will be Sunday, February 11th at 8:30am. We will meet in the Grafton Notch parking lot on the west side of Route 26 where the A.T. crosses the road. There will be carpooling and FREE food of some kind at the start. You must RSVP for this hike by emailing us at email@example.com, calling 207-808-2073, or by RSVPing to the Facebook event listing. Here are some additional resources: Come on out on the A.T. for the GMOW!
