Appalachian Trail Club are looking for volunteers
Maine Appalachian Trail Club are looking for
volunteers, so if you are so inclined to do so please contact this group for any
questions.My name is Josiah Petrin. I am reaching out on behalf of the Maine
Appalachian Trail Club, which is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that
maintains the 267 miles of Appalachian Trail in Maine.
MATC is currently seeking volunteers for its 2017 summer season work trips,
which consist of multi-day hikes along the AT to conduct critically-needed trail
maintenance in sections of the trail. Join MATC members in “old fashion work
trips” that could involve anything from building lean-tos and privies, to
relocating trail sections, to painting blazes, to helping with corridor
monitoring, to helping with Spring Clean-up on the AT.
We greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide. Please let me know if you
Thank you and best regards,
On Behalf of Maine Appalachian Trail Club

Katahdin Region Multi-Use Trail
The Northern Timber Cruisers ATV and Snowmobile Club is pleased to announce that
the Katahdin Region Multi-Use Trail (K.R.M.U.T.) is now open for ATV riding.
After five years of planning and negotiations, this collaborative effort between
the Northern Timber Cruisers, landowner Acadian Timberlands (formerly KFM),
Katahdin area municipalities, Katahdin Area Chamber of Commerce and the State of
Maine Department of Conservation, has resulted in a finely manicured 16.5 mile
multi-use recreation trail.
Highlights of the trail include scenic views of Jo-Mary Mountain and Katahdin, a
suspension bridge over the West Branch of the Penobscot River, mile markers with
GPS coordinates, access to the State of Maine's Seboeis Unit - Public Reserve
Lands, access to other Mt. Bike and Cross Country Ski Trails, connectivity
between Millinocket and the Brownville/Milo area ATV trails and the Northern
Timber Cruisers Clubhouse and Antique Snowmobile Museum.
A map is available for viewing and printing at this link.
If trailering to the Katahdin Area to access the trail, please unload at the
only designated trailhead, located at the Northern Timber Cruisers Clubhouse on
Outer Bates Street just outside of town on the State Road to Baxter State Park.
NO PARKING IS PERMISSIBLE ON THE GOLDEN ROAD, PER ORDER OF THE LANDOWNER -
Do you need gasoline? Are you hungry? Are you looking for a place to spend the

Multi Use Trail System in the Works - Bridge Across North Twin Completed
Officials, business owners and recreation enthusiasts from East Millinocket,
Medway and Millinocket have long believed that all-terrain-vehicle use in the
Katahdin region would inject millions of dollars into the regional economy
during spring, summer and fall, much the way snowmobiling does during winter.
Katahdin Forest Management, town officials and Northern Timber Cruisers club
members have signed a nonbinding agreement to build Phase I, a 13-mile trail
linking the snowmobile and ATV clubhouse to the bridge and South Twin Lake, by
December — in time for snowmobiling.
That system would connect the Katahdin region to the rest of the state’s ATV and
multiuse trails — and the millions generated annually by ATV riders — by a
23˝-mile trail that will run from the Millinocket Timber Cruisers clubhouse to
trail networks by Seboeis Lake and then on to southern Maine.
