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!
Our next MATLT Community Hike will take place on Saturday, March 18th at 9am – we will be tackling Little Bigelow, the long, lower peak at the east end of the Bigelow Range. This hike is approximately 6.2 miles in length and should take at least 6 hours start to finish. It features spectacular views of the Bigelow Range, Flagstaff Lake and Maine’s High Peaks. It is a strenuous hike and you will need full winter gear, including snowshoes.
You must RSVP for this hike below or by contacting us at email@example.com or by calling 207-808-2073!
