9780738574516: Along Maine's Appalachian Trail (Images of America)

Maine native Myron H. Avery recruited friends from Washington, DC; Maine forest and warden service personnel; guides and sporting camp operators; and the Civilian Conservation Corps to extend the Appalachian Trail through Maine, despite questions of whether it would be possible to carve a trail through the state’s wildlands. Volunteers of Maine’s Appalachian Trail Club, created by Avery in 1935, have since maintained the trail, built shelters, relocated more than half of the original hastily constructed route, and taken on the task of managing the trail’s protection corridor. Along Maine’s Appalachian Trail illustrates the rich history of the trail’s rugged mountains and vast forests, which have provided a livelihood for generations of workers and communities.

Highlights of Along Maine’s Appalachian Trail:

· This book tells how the Appalachian Trail in Maine was planned, scouted, blazed, and built from 1932-1937, including completion of the last two miles of the entire A.T. by young men of the Civilian Conservation Corps near Sugarloaf Mt. on 14 August, 1937.

· Maine's Appalachian Trail passes through a rich historical landscape of aboriginal place names, logging, early settlements, traditional hunting/fishing "sporting" camps, pioneer railroads, forest fire watch towers, and even slate quarries.

· This the story not only of the Appalachian Trail in Maine, but also the Maine Appalachian Trail Club, whose volunteers relocated 2/3 of the original trail from 1970-1990 and which is now entering its 76th year of caring for the A.T. and its protective corridor lands.
