Double Fun

Hello Trailmen-

Are you ready for double fun? This weekend, the Troop is going to Leonard’s Mills.  First, we are going to tour a logging and milling community from the 1790s.  After that, we are going to hike the trails in Penobscot Experimental Forest located next to Leonard’s Mills.  The hike will be a little under 4 miles, and the trail is rated as “easy.”

Admission Cost:  Leonard’s Mills charges admission.  The charge is $10 for adults and $5 for our young men.

Meeting Time: We will meet at Leonard’s Mills entrance at 12:30 on Saturday, October 1st.  From there, we will start the tour.   We will regroup at the entrance to start the hike. The hike will start at approximately 2:30 pm. We should be finished about 6:00 pm.

Directions: From Bangor and Brewer, take ME Route 9 from Brewer 4 miles towards Eddington. Turn onto ME Route 178 and follow towards Milford for another 4.5 miles. A large sign will be on the left but the entrance and Government Road will be on the the right directly across from the sign.

Things you will need:

  • Bible
  • water
  • snacks
  • weather appropriate clothing
  • bag or pack to carry your supplies

Comments: 

  • Consider eating a good lunch before arriving at Leonard’s Mills.
  • This is a rain or shine event.

Saturday (9/9/2016) Meeting LOCATION Change!

Hi all!  There’s a big wedding happening out at Crossroads Camp all this weekend, and we’ve been asked to find an alternate location. We will meet at Steve & Nathan’s house, just for this week.

If you’re not sure how to get to their house, please use the Contact Us Page to get in touch with one of us for directions (it’s easy to find, right on rt 9 on the way to camp).

We’ll have a regular meeting, firm up plans for our next Hit the Trail outing, and even have some fun while we’re at it!

Walk worthy,
Steve
