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 winter Community Hike will be to the Perham Stream Birding Trail on Saturday, February 17th with a meetup time of 10am. The PSBT is a property of High Peaks Alliance and is an easy snowshoe/cross country ski hike in the heart of Maine’s High Peaks, with views of the surrounding mountains and forests. The Perham Stream Birding Trail is accessible year-round by foot travel only. Visitors can walk, snowshoe, or cross-country ski. The trail is set up with birders and wildlife watchers in mind, and binoculars are definitely encouraged! There are five birding “sub-habitats” along the trail, including field, alder thicket with hardwood wetland, mixed-wood forest dominated with hardwood, mixed wood with stream, and field/stream edges.
You must RSVP for this hike by completing the form below, emailing us at email@example.com, or by calling 207-808-2073.
