Midcoast Conservancy’s Earth Day Trail Work, Train Ride and Hike at Trout Brook April 19th!

Join the Midcoast Conservancy aboard the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway April 19th for a day of service and fun.  Conservancy volunteers will clean up the trailhead, take a train ride, and hike at Trout Brook Preserve in Alna, Maine.

9:30 – 11 a.m.: Trout Brook Trailhead cleanup: For those who want to give back a little extra in the spirit of Earth Day, we will be picking up trash and freshening up the trail and surrounding trailhead before the hike!

11:30 a.m.: Gather at the WW&F Railway’s Sheepscot station at 97 Cross Rd in Alna.

12 noon: The train departs Sheepscot Station.

Please bring a bag lunch if you plan on attending both the service and fun sections of the day.

The second half of the event will run from 12 noon to 3 p.m.  The train will leave the WW&F’s Sheepscot station at noon, so please arrive early – come check out the museum and train yard.  The WW&F Railway’s steam train will venture through the woods to Top of Mountain station.

After debarking the train, we will hike just over 2.5 miles on terrain that is of easy to moderate difficulty. Come along for the beautiful views of Trout Brook!

Running Late? Not a problem: you can meet us there. Hikers will arrive at Trout Brook Preserve Trailhead around 12:45.

Join us for a fun day in the woods and celebrate the wonderful earth we live on!
