Keep bearing right on Mariaville Road (Route 180) for 8.3 miles until you reach the junction of 181 (just past Beech Hill School) on the right.

Maine Conservation Corps Trail Crew
A six-person Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) trail crew will be building trail as part of the Schoodic Trail Connector for eight weeks, starting September 22. This will eventually connect Route 1 in Sullivan to Schoodic Mountain in the Donnell Pond State Reserve Land, with a nine mile trail. We are looking for volunteers to assist the crew and help get even more trail built during this concentrated effort. If interested, contact FBC at 422-2328 or email@example.com.
Baker Hill & Long Ledges Preserves Work Day
In anticipation of the Autumn Trail Race (more information below), we are looking for volunteers to help with trail maintenance at our Baker Hill and Long Ledges Preserve. The dates and times of the trail work days are to be determined...stay tuned for more information. If you're interested in helping, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 422-2328.
