Trail Walker Takes a Busman’s Holiday


Friends of Acadia trail volunteers break ground on a new connector trail.

Well, sort of. More often than not, Trail Walker is reading and writing about other people’s hikes and trail work while sitting in front of a computer. But last week, TW got up to Acadia National Park, covered many miles of beautiful trails on foot, and also joined up one day with a volunteer trail crew sponsored by the Friends of Acadia.

Just like our own New York-New Jersey Trail Conference volunteers, these are great people, dedicated to trails and outdoor recreation and enthusiastic about getting together to make both happen. Wherever we hike, it seems there are volunteers to thank. What a great community!
