Young Members: Mount Bigelow Backpacking

Date: Saturday, October 23 - Sunday, October 24

Mount BigelowJoin us for a Young Members backpacking trip in the Bigelow Preserve! This intermediate, overnight trip will cover a 12-mile loop that offers beautiful views of the Carrabassett Valley and Flagstaff Lake. The total elevation gain will be about 4,000 feet. The first day will be about seven miles and a lot of climbing as we go up and over West Peak via Horns Pond and the Appalachian Trail. We'll start out the second day with a one-mile out and back to Avery Peak before hiking the remaining four miles back to our cars. All participants will need to have good fitness and experience with similar backpacking trips. You'll be responsible for all your own food and gear. As this is a shoulder season hike, you need to have access to cold weather hiking clothing, a winter sleeping bag, and microspikes. The focus of the trip will be on having fun and staying together as a group, but everyone will need to be comfortable maintaining a moderate hiking pace with a full backpack over steep terrain and many miles. All interested in joining the trip will need to answer a few questions to evaluate their preparedness before they are officially registered. Check out more details about the planned route at If it seems of interest and a good fit with your past experience, please register, and we'll be in touch! This is a Young Members event that aims to connect people in their 20s and 30s with the outdoors and each other, but all who love preserving and playing in nature are welcome to join us!
