Experience Level


As a MOAC member and sometimes leader, I’d like to invite MOAC members to a hike I posted with AMC for the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend (which is over a week long now).  I’m also doing this hike Feb. 8 and 15.

Celebrate the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend by joining us for a fun afternoon winter outing in Topsham at the Cathance River Preserve. We will lead the group on a snowshoe or hike (based on conditions) on the trails at the Preserve. This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. The trails will lead us down to the river where the ice formations can be magical in the winter. We will follow along the river and do as many trail sections as the group is up to. We will then loop back to the parking area. Watch for animal tracks along the way and enjoy this beautiful woods walk. Trails are narrow with some short steeper sections.  Plan on about 2-3 hours out. Microspikes or similar traction will be required. You’ll have a chance to learn a bit about the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust and the history of this wonderful Preserve. It’s also home to the Cathance River Education Alliance. A staff member of CREA might join us for the outing and open up the Center for us to visit. So join us in this wonderful winter wonderland. To register: Please email leader info on level of experience, gear and a phone contact.
