3 day adventure: July 12-14, 2019
Itinerary: (Carpooling from southern Maine 6am or meet in Millinocket.) Day one we will drive to Baxter and hike 3 miles to Chimney pond, where we will stay in lean-tos and rest at the foot of the mountain just under the peak! Day two we will spend the day hiking to the summit (1 steep mile) via the Cathedral and Saddle Trails with just our day-bags and bask in the glory of staying another night in our lean-to at Chimney Pond. Day three we will pack up and hike 3 miles back to the cars. This is the best way to enjoy the mountain and take it all in without rushing!
One week before the trip there will be a ‘duffle shuffle’ near Portland, Maine where Leah will go over all the gear you need and make sure you have the right stuff. Bring your own backpack and sleeping bag. You will get a packing list when you register.
Each day, we facilitate yoga practices to take advantage of the natural rhythms of the body and to compliment our level of hiking for the day. Novice and advanced yoga practitioners welcome!
Cost: $525 early bird price before May 31. $575 after.
