Canceled: Trail work & boundary work at Medawisla

Date: Friday, October 9 - Monday, October 12

With hundreds of miles of property lines and trails, the AMC in Maine has lots of volunteer work opportunities. For this trip we will be staying in bunkhouses at Medawisla Lodge and spending our days in small groups, prepping trails for visitors and maintaining boundary lines. If you love to work outside with likeminded people and relax in the evening with delicious food, this is the trip for you! Work days are fun and varied and can be scaled to all abilities, but will not be cancelled due to inclement weather. This may include hiking, carrying tools, bushwhacking, clearing or creating trails, painting boundary markers, and stacking firewood. Tools and instruction will be provided.
