Monthly hikes are offered by Mahoosuc Pathways and Mahoosuc Land Trust. We choose a different hike each month; all are strenuous, day-long hikes and require sign up ahead of time.
This hike in the Caribou-Speckled Mountain Wilderness is approximately 11 miles, and will summit both Speckled and Blueberry Mountains. Meet for carpooling at 7:30am in the parking lot to the left of The Gem Theater (and across from Western Maine Supply) OR at the trailhead on Rt. 113 (height of land; parking lot for the Royce Mts.) at 8:00am. Our route will be as follows: Spruce Hill Trail to Bickford Brook Trail to summit of Speckled; Blueberry Ridge to Bickford Brook Trail and back on Spruce Hill Trail to the trailhead.

You will be responsible for ALL your own food and water and please dress appropriately (layers, good footwear, etc.). We will carry a basic first aid kit for minor bumps and bruises but will not have medical personnel on site. Plan on at least 6-7 hours for the hike, depending on the pace of the group.
