When: Saturday, September 29 at 1pm to 3pm

Where: Higgins Mountain Preserve in Georgetown

Join KELT to celebrate the grand opening of a new loop trail during Great Maine Outdoor Week!

Trail construction was led by local Boy Scout, Thomas Trundy, for his Eagle Scout project. After a short welcome, explore the trail on your own or take the guided tour with Thomas.

The new loop at Higgins Mountain Preserve adds a half-mile out-and-back ramble along the rocky shoulder of the Mountain. It connects to the existing blue-blazed trail at the memorial plaque, and at a point further north. The new trail is relatively level but somewhat rocky, passing through a pitch and white pine woodland covered with huckleberry, lowbush blueberry and reindeer lichens, and traversing open ledge in places. In some places the trail is marked with small rock piles called cairns. The semi-open woodland will make for pleasant viewing especially in the fall season when the huckleberry lights up in fall colors. The new trail partly follows an older path which extends into adjoining properties. Please respect our neighbor's boundaries and to not proceed beyond the posted signs. 

The program offered by KELT is free and open to the public. This is a light rain or shine event, and registration is strongly encouraged, using the Google Form below. For more information, contact Becky Kolak at bkolak@kennebecestuary.org or by calling 207-442-8400.
