Expansion of Mount Pisgah trails reaches halfway pointThe Kennebec Land Trust hopes to add 3 miles of trail and 139 acres of conservation area by 2018....The Kennebec Land Trust, which manages the conservation area and its trails, is midway through a two-year campaign to acquire two properties and expand the trails to a total of 6 miles.“There’s thousands of people who enjoy Mount Pisgah for everything it has to offer: hiking, hunting, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling,” said Theresa Kerchner, executive director of the Kennebec Land Trust. “It’s also the largest unfragmented conservation property (that we manage), and it protects important habitats in the Cobbossee watershed. The fact that there will be 1,080 acres that are permanently protected is a tremendous attraction to people who enjoy those large blocks of undeveloped land.”http://www.pressherald.com/2017/08/06/e ... way-point/
