Maine Appalachian Trail
For anyone who loves to backpack, living close to nature and the wonder of the open trail, a trek on the Maine Appalachian Trail (the AT) promises a great adventure. This three-week expedition is for young women who have reached a level of competence in wilderness skills that allows them to take on the sustained challenge of hiking a Maine section of the famous Appalachian Trail.
Leaders encourage the girls to practice good judgment, decision-making, and teamwork, while keeping compassion and a sense of humor within easy reach. The pleasures of wilderness travel and friendship, as well as the sense of accomplishment that comes from having bonded and succeeded as a group in the face of challenges, make this a trip girls always remember.
