Let’s conquer Tumbledown Mountain! Mara Kavanaugh, a Maine native and avid hiker, will lead us to the summit for spectacular views of the Western Mountains Region. This hike features three peaks, 700-foot cliffs, and a mountain pond. Enjoy springtime and socializing (at a safe distance) with like-minded people as you check-off one of Maine’s most well-known peaks!
The Skowhegan AmeriCorps Outdoor Recreation Program (SAORP) will be meeting at the Main Street Skowhegan (MSS) Office at 8 a.m. If you don’t have your own transportation, let us know ahead of time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
