The Grafton Loop Trail (GLT) offers 40 miles of hiking along a trail that connects a series of scenic peaks and other natural features in Maine’s Grafton Notch. The western half is a 13 mile stretch, beginning on Route 26, south of the eastern half’s trailhead. Traversing the Bear River, Bald Mountain and Miles Notch, this part of the trail ends on the summit of Old Speck Mountain at its junction with the Mahoosuc Trail/AT. This section includes three primitive campsites. The eastern half of the GLT consists of a 21-mile arc that leaves Route 26 in Newry, Maine, and returns to the road in Grafton Notch State Park via four miles on Appalachian Trail (AT). Seventeen miles are recently constructed trail, which traverses four mountain peaks and includes five primitive campsites. One night of the trip will be spent at Mahoosuk Guide Service, where we’ll stay in a beautiful rustic bunkhouse, take a shower, and enjoy a delicious and hearty dinner and breakfast before striking out to complete the western side of the Loop. Prices Includes: Packing list, on-trail skills instruction. Meal assistance is available by arrangement. I can also help arrange your stay at local accommodations, which may include the night before & after your expedition. 1 hour of pre-trip preparation consultation (phone or video connection) to participants.

Camden Hills State Park Backpacking Weekend: October 23-25, 2015
48 hours | 5 People

We’ll hike into a ski shelter located approximately 2.5 miles inside Camden Hills State Park amidst birch, maple, and balsam forest on a Friday in October. It is The focus of this trip will be on constructing multi-fuel backpacking stoves and backpacking cooking! Camden Hills has 25 miles of excellent trails, including the summit of Mount Megunticook (1,385’). Megunticook is a nearly three mile long mountain ridge extending out to Ocean Lookout which overlooks the expanse of Penobscot Bay. During the day, participants will be on their own to explore the park. I am very familiar with the Park’s trails and can provide participants with insight about my personal favorites. This trip is permitted for up to 5 participants. The wood-stove heated shelter has 6 bunk beds, but no mattresses, so participants will need to bring their own sleeping pads, sleeping bags, and personal gear. We will purify water from a stream, and there is a newly constructed outhouse adjacent to the wood-heated shelter. Includes lodging/usage fees for 2 nights, and food for one complete dinner (Saturday night) that we will prepare on multi-fuel backpacking stoves. I will provide you a packing list.
