National Trails Day

Celebrating Acadia’s Trails

Saturday, June 7, 2014
8:30 – 11:00 a.m.

Discover, enjoy, and care for Acadia’s magnificent 125-mile trail system and FOA-sponsored Village Connector Trails and community trails, accompanied by park trail crew and interpretive staff members.

Help inaugurate the brand-new Quarry Trail and Otter Cove Trail, connecting Blackwoods Campground with Ocean Drive and the Ocean Path through Otter Cove. Construction of these trails was funded in part through Friends of Acadia’s Acadia Trails Forever endowment. The Acadia Youth Conservation Corps and many Friends of Acadia volunteers helped National Park Service crews build them.

Meet for coffee and breakfast snacks at 8:30 a.m. at Fabbri Picnic Area (past Otter Cliffs on the Loop Road). Around 8:55, the group will move toward Otter Cove Causeway for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. A trail work project is also planned that morning following the ribbon cutting for those who are interested.

This is a free event but advance registration is requested for planning purposes. For more information or to register, contact Stephanie Clement at 207-288-3340 or stephanie@friendsofacadia.org, or register online.
