Love Maine Trails Month

What is Love Maine Trails Month?

Love Maine Trails Month (LMTM) is a collective statewide month of trail stewardship where trail maintaining organizations, municipalities, state and federal agencies, staff and volunteers come together to perform a variety of trail work projects throughout Maine, engaging volunteers and raising awareness of the ethic of care and magnitude of scale required to maintain Maine’s trails. Love Maine Trails Month is organized by the Maine Trails Coalition.
