Rangeley I

Trip Description

Begin by hiking along the Appalachian Trail up Surplus Mountain in the beautiful Grafton Notch State Park and staying at a lean-to the first night. Continue hiking the next day to South Arm Campsite on Lower Richardson Lake and meet up with your opposing trip. Canoe the following day through The Narrows and into Upper Richardson Lake while surrounded by breathtaking mountains and walking trails on shore. It’s just the best of both worlds, ain’t it?!

Hey I’m Nat! Here is a little about me: I am from vermont. I can’t whistle. I spend most of my time on my bike, tossin a disc or just being outside. I’m super psyched for our trip and to meet all of you! See you soon!
