Overview

Join the Worcester, New Hampshire, Maine, and Boston Chapter 20s & 30s groups for a weekend of trail work in the beautiful and remote Maine Woods! This two night, two day (with optional third night and day) trip includes two full days of trail work and two nights' stay at AMC's Little Lyford lodge, plus an optional hike/exploration day on Monday. Participants are encouraged to arrive by late afternoon/early evening Friday to provide ample time to get to the lodge for dinner before the gate closes. This trip is designed for people in their 20s & 30s who are interested in learning about trail work and bringing back newly gained skills to local chapter opportunities. No trail work experience is required, only a desire to learn trail work techniques and contribute to the restoration of mountain trails. Activities may include brushing, timber and rock step installation, clearing drainages, building bridges, and erosion control and will be somewhat tailored to the interests and abilities of the group. The trail work will involve hiking a few miles each day with moderate elevation gain. We will be working under the leadership and guidance of AMC's Professional Trail Crew with tools and safety gear provided. Expect to be out for about 7-8 hours Saturday and 4-5 hours Sunday. At the end of each day, we'll enjoy social time and dinner back at the lodge. Accommodations are cabins and a bunkhouse at Little Lyford, one of AMC's lodges in the heart of the 100-mile Wilderness in the Maine Woods. Breakfast, trail lunch, and dinner (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch) are included with the cost of the stay. If you plan to stay on Sunday night, you will be charged an additional cost at a discounted rate, which includes Sunday dinner and Monday breakfast and lunch. Cancellation policy: cancellations prior to July 9 will be refunded minus a $25 cancellation fee; cancellations after July 9 will only receive refund if we fill your spot. No refunds after August 2.
