At a Glance

The Bold Coast of Maine boasts an otherworldly beauty that every hiker should experience, but as more people come to enjoy this precious stretch of coastline, the need increases for active stewardship and preservation efforts to maintain it for future generations. Bridges must be built above sensitive bog ecosystems and trails must be blazed to lead hikers through the region while minimizing the impact on fragile vegetation. On this adventure of service, join land trust stewards and Maine Registered Guides in these efforts and gain a full understanding of the complex process of planning and building trails and bridges on the Bold Coast.
