About Adult Adventures

Level of Difficulty

Program participants should be able to complete a moderate 6-8 hour day hike in a backcountry setting. Our guides will calibrate each day's activity to the group's challenge level. Depending on the size of the group, we may split up so that there is an option of an easier and a more challenging activity.

Required Equipment

Participants will receive a program packet and equipment list at registration time. Program participants at the Highland Center have free access to outerwear and equipment from the L.L.Bean Gear Room.


A breakfast buffet, trail lunch, and family-style dinner, including home-baked bread, soup, salad, entree, and dessert are included with your guided program package. Please notify us during registration of any special dietary requirements. We can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and lactose-free diets, and most food allergies, with advance notice.



"Absolutely superb! A very full, rich day. This program has both breadth and depth; we saw a wide variety of plants but also got a lot of information on selected species. Instructors were truly excellent."

Program Participant

"Good hikes, great guides, good folks, good fun. Don't see a reason or a way to improve!"

Program Participant

"This hike exceeded my experience because of valuable lessons learned even apart from nature lessons. Strength of the instructor included Nancy's knowledge of natural history; helpfulness at all levels of the experience - hiking, teaching, encouraging us when we needed it!"
