Join local volunteers from Moosehead Trails at Number 4 Mountain for an awesome day of hiking and trail work. We’ll be focused on basic maintenance — lopping branches, painting blazes, and clearing corridor — to the top of Number 4 and interested/motivated hikers will have the opportunity to explore beyond the summit along the new trail towards Baker Mountain.

Details:
Meet by 9 a.m. at the trail head on the Meadow Brook Road. This is most directly accessed via a right turn off the Lily Bay Road, about 4.5 miles past the entrance to the State Park.

What to Bring in Your Pack:
Plenty of water, snacks and lunch, work gloves, loppers and a folding hand saw (if you’ve got them), and whatever else you need to be comfortable: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, bug spray, your camera, etc.

Other Important Information:

This is not a guided hike, just a group of good people enjoying the outdoors and giving back to Moosehead area trails!

Kids are welcome but should have an adult chaperone present.

Can’t come for the whole day? That’s fine! We’re happy to have you for a half-day or even an hour.

No tools? No worries! We can provide some equipment.

Although volunteers should be able to hike and operate basic hand tools, you don’t have to be super fast or fit to join us. We have fun and take it as slow as we need to.
