Trail Work - Little Lyford Pond Camps

Date: Friday, May 26 - Monday, May 29

Volunteer for trail work at Little Lyford Pond Lodge and Cabins. Help open trails for the summer hiking season. Join other volunteers from Maine Chapter and beyond as we patrol hiking trails in the area in preparation for another busy summer in the Maine Woods Initiative. We berth in the bunkhouse and enjoy off time exploring the area including Gulf Hagas, a beautiful and wild river gorge and Indian Mountain including Laurie's Ledge which provides views north to Katahdin on clear days. Moose sightings are optional but not infrequent. Black fly sightings are frequent but not optional! This trip fills quickly so call AMC reservations now to avoid disappointment.
