Help Wanted: Trail Volunteers in Maine

We are looking for trail volunteers for a number of new programs in AMC's Maine Woods Initiative. We have several exciting new week-long trail volunteer opportunities and a new Adopt-A-Trail Program in the 100 Mile Wilderness Area.

Join one of our Adult Volunteer Vacation Trail Crews for a week!

July 17-23 or July 24-30
Maine Woods Base Camp Trail Crew: Starting and ending at AMC Little Lyford Lodge and Cabins, spending the week working on a variety of hiking trails in the area while camped along the shore of Long Pond in a vehicle accessible campsite. A more relaxing setting to enjoy the area and help out with ongoing trail projects!

August 7-13 or August 14-20
Maine Woods Spike Trail Crew: Starting and ending at Medawisla Wilderness Lodge and Cabins, spending the week constructing new remote paddle-in campsites and canoe portage trails on the Roach Ponds. An excellent way to experience the wildness of the 100 Mile Wilderness Area!

Adopt-A-Trail in AMC's Maine Woods Initiative
There are a number of trails up for adoption for individuals, schools, camps, or families to adopt. Take the free training in basic trail maintenance and get to work helping to do the basic trail maintenance on AMC trails in the 100 Mile Wilderness in Maine.
