Phillips, The High Peaks Alliance (HPA) was recently awarded a grant from the Maine Community Foundation to create a High Peaks Trails Plan. The purpose of the plan is to work with the trails community to collaboratively develop a regional vision for recreation in the High Peaks, and help HPA better identify and support conservation projects which feature public access.
The High Peaks Alliance is a small non-profit organization working to ensure and enhance public access to recreation in Maine’s High Peaks (the region bounded by routes 4, 27, 16, & 142). The High Peaks Region is already home to wonderful motorized and non-motorized trail systems, generously hosted by public and private land-owners, and maintained by dedicated volunteers. The Trails Plan will not promote or plan trails on private land without landowner permission.
For more information or to find out how you can help plan for the future of recreation in the High Peaks region, please find us on the web at www.highpeaksalliance.org/high-peaks-trails-plan. If you are a trail user, please visit and tell us what are your favorite trails and why? If you are a landowner graciously hosting a trail, please tell us about your experiences. Working together, we can improve trails in the High Peaks Region and make sure they are a viable economic and recreational resource which will be available for future generations of hikers, bikers, skiers, snowmobile & ATV riders.
