Trail Work -Gorman Chairback Lodge and Cabins-July11-14, 2016

Date: Monday, July 10 - Thursday, July 13

Trail work trip to the Maine Woods Initiative/100 mile Wilderness area. Lodging at Gorman Chairback Lodge and Cabins. Under the direction of Steve Tatko, Land Manager and his staff, we will pull a couple of slips out of the AMC job jar and go to work. Gorman Chairback Lodge and Cabins is located on beautiful Long Pond and near to the Appalachian Trail, The Hermitage and Gulf Hagas. When we are not working we can visit all three and more in this northern Maine woods paradise. Come work, hike, paddle, swim or just relax after a day of trail work in support of the AMC mission. Did I mention the delicious meals and beautiful lodge? Contact leader for further information.
