On Friday, September 29th, Downeast Lakes Land Trust celebrates the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend with a “Sunset Hike” on the Musquash Esker Trail.  A glacial ribbon left by the last ice age, the Musquash Esker Trail winds 1.4 miles to a lookout over Big Musquash Stream, offering views of over 5,000 acres of unique wetland habitat and Amazon Mountain.  Join DLLT Education and Outreach Manager Colin Brown, and learn about the ecosystem and geology of this special place.  Participants should meet at the Musquash Esker trailhead on Milford Road (look for the DLLT flag!) at 4:30 pm.  Please bring sturdy footwear, water, a camera, and flashlight.  For more information, please contact DLLT at (207) 796 – 2100, or email cbrown@downeastlakes.org.
