Some highlights and words from the Appalachian Trail conservancy’s executive director on August 18th.
The 75th anniversary celebration of the completion of the Appalachian Trail, held at Sugarloaf was a great success. The trail runs right through the western mountains of Maine and there are tons of spots to take advantage of the trail. Folks from all around enjoyed the mountain atmosphere, hiked the AT to the plaque and site of the last connection of the trail, enjoyed chairlift rides and a huge celebration at The Rack BBQ. For more information on the AT here in Maine, visit www.matc.org or appalachiantrail.org. Get out and enjoy “the peoples trail”.
