Spend a week in the scenic Maine woods this summer working and camping on the Appalachian Trail. The Maine Trail Crew, sponsored by the Maine Appalachian Trail Club and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy is based in central Maine. Projects are located along 267 miles of the Appalachian Trail, and most involve reconstruction and rockwork. Projects are supervised by crew leaders under the direction of modern trail-work pioneer Lester Kenway
The crew works four nine-hour days, traveling back to basecamp on the fifth day. Some projects are located on high mountains and involve strenuous pack-ins, while other projects are located on scenic lake shores or involve car camping. Due to the variation in difficulty, we recommend that you study the trip schedule below. Once you register to join the Maine Trail Crew, MATC will contact you with additional information to help assure that you will join a project that matches your interests and abilities.
