Grafton Loop Trail and Androscoggin River

650.00

August 10-13, 2017

This hiking/paddling combination trip begins with three days and two nights backpacking along a portion of the Grafton Loop Trail and ends with a Sunday morning canoe paddle on the Androscoggin River. The Grafton Loop Trail is a high-elevation backcountry trail strewn with peaks, streams and primitive campsites along its 38 miles. Backpacking this loop involves wrestling by day and resting by night, ultimately returning with a strengthened sense of clarity and resilience in one’s capacity for impact in the world. We will complete much of the loop, with backcountry camping on Thursday and Friday, before spending Saturday night at a campground on the Androscoggin River. Enjoy fellowship that evening with your wilderness community at a local brewery and wake up to paddle the beautiful Androscoggin River on Sunday morning. Previous backpacking or paddling 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. 

Lead guide: Aram Mitchell
