YM Acadia National Park Hiking and Camping

Trip dates: Friday, August 17, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, August 19, 2018 12:00 AM

Come join our second annual Young Members summer weekend in Acadia National Park! We'll be hiking a variety of trails, some very challenging and rewarding. The hikes we're planning are short but do include some technical portions like ladders, steep ledges, etc., and may be challenging for those with a fear of heights. Join us to watch the sunrise from atop Cadillac Mountain and enjoy the beautiful ocean views! There may be some beach time and/or a brewery tour, too. Limited to 12 participants.

Gear: Day hiking gear, mess kit (plate, cup, bowl, utensils), hiking snacks, tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, headlamp.
