Bigelow Preserve Backpack Overnight


Bigelow Preserve Backpack Overnight


July 13-14, 2018

This trip is a 2-day, 1 night backpacking loop trip in the Bigelow Preserve and Flagstaff Lake Public Lands of Maine. We will take the Fire Warden’s Trail approximately 4 miles up to Avery Peak and camp at 4,000 feet with views of the surrounding lakes and mountains. That evening we will enjoy beautiful sunset views. On Saturday morning, we will wake up on the Appalachian Trail and hike 7 miles of the back portion of the loop on the AT down to the parking area on Stratton Brook Pond Road. Previous backpacking experience isn’t necessary, but it is important that participants be in good condition to navigate the terrain and elevation gains while carrying personal and group gear. Registration is required.

Here is a link for more information, an itinerary, and a packing list.

Fee: $295 per participant, includes all meals, group gear, and guidance/facilitation for the duration of the trip. (Note: this is the actual cost to us as an organization, but if you really want to go and can't afford it, contact us and we'll figure something out. We're committed to figuring out a way for folks to get the renewal they need.)
