Celebrating Acadia’s Trails
Saturday, June 6, 2015
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.
Friends of Acadia celebrated National Trails Day on Saturday, June 6 with a group of volunteers working on Acadia National Park’s trails. Volunteers from Maine, Nebraska, and North Carolina brushed back blueberry bushes and cleared drainages on the east side of Jordan Pond Path. This trail is very popular with visitors during the summer and needed some preparation for the busy season. This was also the first event for the new ANP Volunteer Coordinator, Dianna McKeage, who the park welcomed this spring. Look for a bigger event for National Trail’s Day in 2016 during Acadia’s centennial. If you are interested in volunteering on the trails and carriage roads during the rest of the year, please visit www.friendsofacadia.org for more information.
