Join Queerly ME and Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust for a LGBTQIA+ day hike up Little Bigelow Mountain! Starting in the parking lot at 10am on June 28th, we will gather and go over what to expect from our hike and our general guidelines. We will have water bottles and gatorade, but please bring your own lunch and snacks for the top of the mountain! The total hike time will take roughly 2 hours up, and 2 hours back depending on the group's pace. For more information on this hike, please reference https://www.mainetrailfinder.com/trails/trail/bigelow-preserve-little-bigelow.
There is a suggested donation of $10.00 which will go toward Queerly ME's ongoing programming!
To access the north and east side of the Bigelow Preserve is via the paved Long Falls Dam Road. From North New Portland and ME Route 16, turn onto Long Falls Dam Road and follow it 17.4 miles north and then turn northwest (left) onto the gravel Bog Brook Road. At 0.7 miles take the left fork on to the East Flagstaff Road which intersects the A.T. in 0.1 miles. Park in the gravel pit on the right, just before the A.T. intersects the road. Additional parking, on the left, is just beyond where the A.T. heads southbound from East Flagstaff Road.
