Maintainer Patch

Trail Maintainer Wanted – Katahdin District 

Rainbow Ledges –This section starts at the signpost on Rainbow Ledges and extends south 3.5 miles to the Rainbow Mt. side trail junction. This assignment also includes the 0.4 mile side trail to Big Beaver Pond and the 0.75 mile side trail to Rainbow Mt., which has excellent views of Katahdin and the peaks of southwest Baxter State Park. There is no direct road access to this section of the A.T., it is accessed via a 1.5 miles maintainer access trail and then hiking south on the A.T. for 2.5 miles to Rainbow Ledges. MATC asks that maintainers make 3 work trips per year, late spring, summer and fall to clear blowdowns, clip branches, clean water-bars, paint white blazes and send in work trip reports.  If you are interested in this section, please contact me at the email address listed below and let me know of your trail maintaining experience.
