Location: Downeast Maine
Pathfinders, a volunteer group, invites the public to join them on organized walks at a variety of beautiful Downeast locations all year round!
All walks start at 1 PM and are approximately two hours long and may be canceled due to inclement weather. While these group outings are a great opportunity to visit new places and meet new people, all walkers must assume responsibility for their own safety.
Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain, and consider bringing water and a pick-me-up snack. Also, binoculars or a camera may help you catch a glimpse at wildlife at a safe and respectful distance.
