Full Moon Hike at Hatchery Brook Preserve @ Hatchery Brook Preserve
Jun 17 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Experience the sights and sounds of the forest at night during one of our Full Moon Hikes at Hatchery Brook Preserve. Night hiking is a unique experience everyone should experience. This hike will give plenty of opportunities to view the Village of Rangeley at night, so bring your camera!

Hikers should dress appropriately and wear trail shoes or boots. Please bring a flashlight in case of cloudy conditions (No headlamps please). Some parts of the trail have roots, uneven terrain and sections of bog-bridging. Participants should be in good health with no walking or night vision difficulties.

The hike will be led by RLHT staff. Registration is not required but requested. Register by calling (207) 864-7311. Ask for Amanda or leave a message. The hike is about 2 miles in length and starts at 6 p.m. at the Trailhead.

Marshall Island Hike @ Marshall Island
Jun 29 all-day
Marshall Island Hike @ Marshall Island

Board a chartered boat for a day-long island adventure to Marshall Island with Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Tucked between Swan’s Island and Isle au Haut on the eastern edge of Jericho Bay, MCHT’s Ed Woodsum Preserve encompasses all 985 acres of Marshall Island, one of the largest undeveloped islands on the eastern seaboard.

Departing from Bass Harbor on Mount Desert Island, we’ll motor to Marshall Island for a five-mile hike along wooded shoreline paths, rocky coves, and through the interior of this beautiful, remote island.

We’ll follow the trails to Popplestone Cove, Boxam Cove, and stop for a picnic lunch along the way. We’ll leave time to enjoy the beach at Sand Cove – arguably Maine’s most spectacular sand beach – and definitely one of the most remote!
