Mission Statement

The purpose of this organization shall be to construct, maintain and protect, in the State of Maine, a section of the Appal achian Trail extending from Katahdin to Grafton Notch at Maine Highway 26, to be supplemented with side trails and a system of shelters and campsites at proper intervals, so as to rende r accessible for hiking the wild region of Maine through which the Trail passes.

Description

Now entering its 78 th year, Maine Appalachian Trail Club’s mission is to keep the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) in Maine, from Grafton Notch to Katahdin, an unspoiled, natural and primitive footpath through a most scenic and challenging terrain. MATC is not a recreational hiking club. It is an organization of community volunteers who contribute more than 24,000 hours annually to manage, repair and protect 267-miles of the A.T. MATC’s volunteers epitomize the hardworking, independent spirit of Maine, without the 78-year dedication of volunteers, Maine’s Appalachian Trail would not exist.
