Join Appalachian Trail (A.T.) Committee volunteers and Lee A.T. Community volunteers and supporters as we celebrate Lee's designation as an A.T. Community!
There are presently 51 designated A.T. Communities along the Trail. This month, 5 new communities will be added, Lee included. The A.T. Community Designation Application is a lengthy process that is submitted to the A.T. Committee by the Application Committee within the town or city and then voted on by the Regional ATC Chapter following a presentation and review. Lee was approved in March by the New England Regional Committee and the designation proclamation is occurring in Lee on June 17, 2023. We congratulate Lee on receiving this designation and invite the public to join in the ceremony.
The AMC Western MA Chapter is one of the partnering organizations in this project, along with the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Lee Land Trust, Lee Greener Greenway and The Massachusetts A.T. Management Committee. Join us as we celebrate Lee's designation with a hike to Upper Goose Pond on June 24. The hike will be 4-6 miles on generally moderate terrain, with one steep climb. Pace will be slow/moderate to encourage conversation and welcome folks new to the Trail. Meet the Cabin Caretakers, long distance hikers, and enjoy a swim at the pond.
This event has ended, but we have lots of upcoming activities! See our activities page for things to do.
