Uncle Tom’s Guided Adventures Trip- Camden Hills State Park, Camden, Maine–Dates: October 23-25, 2015
We’ll hike into the Ski Shelter scenically set the forest on a Friday afternoon.
We will hike out on Sunday. The shelter is located approximately 2.5 miles within Camden Hills State Park. The focus of this adventure will be on backpacking cooking, BUT the weekend can also serve as an opportunity for anyone who wants to walk on some beautiful trails and spend a couple of nights in a back country setting in a tidy spot in the woods.
Take Home A Stove! On Saturday night I will coordinate a dinner on home-made multi-fuel (wood, alcohol, solid fuel tablets) backpacking stoves. I provide the tools, materials, and fuel to allow each person to make, cook with, and then go home with their own multi-fuel cook stove, complete with custom titanium air mixing base plate.
Camden Hills’ 25 miles of trails, include the summit of Mount Megunticook (1,385’). Megunticook is a nearly three mile long mountain ridge extending out to Ocean Lookout which overlooks the expanse of Penobscot Bay. During the day, we will group up and explore as much of the park as we can. I am most familiar with these trails and will offer my personal favorite hikes.
Folks with iPhones should acquire the $3.99 Camden Hills Hiker app, which is also available in an Android application. I will assist participants with the App’s features, and we can use it to stay “found”.
This trip is permitted for up to 6 people. The wood-stove heated shelter has 6 bunk beds. Participants will need to bring their own sleeping pads, sleeping bags, and personal gear, and other meals/ snacks. We will purify water from a stream, and use a clean outhouse adjacent to the wood-heated shelter. I can help provide items, like packs and sleeping pads and bags, if necessary.
$100. Includes lodging/usage fees for 2 nights, food for Saturday night’s dinner, and a backpacking multifuel home-made stove. I will send a packing list.
