Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust’s first of many warm season hikes will be on Saturday, June 15th – destination, Four Ponds. We will meet at the Height of Land overlook at 9:30am in the parking area. We can proceed to the summit of Spruce Mountain and then down the backside to series of remote, high-elevation ponds within the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands’ Four Ponds area.
This is a moderate hike and we can choose to make it shorter or longer, depending on ability, conditions and interest. It is a great way to get out on the A.T. in Maine without having to navigate woods roads or climb steep mountains. In any case, total mileage will be about 3 miles with the ascent/descent involving approximately 300 feet of elevation gain on either side of Spruce Mountain.
Sign up soon – we will limit the group to ten hikers! Rain date will be the next day, Sunday June 16th.
