Event Description

Hiking In Maine

How many trails are there in Maine? Aislinn will talk about her experience over the past six years exploring the state and visiting a wide variety of trails, from wheelchair-accessible pathways to rugged mountain trails, illustrating her talk with a slideshow of photographs and short video clips from her many adventures. For her Bangor Daily News blog and column, Aislinn has hiked and recorded trails in nearly 300 different locations throughout the state, and she has a long list of trails she has yet to explore. During the presentation, she'll talk about some of her favorite trail-rich areas in the state, and she'll give a sneak peek into her newest project, the guidebook "Maine Hikes Off the Beaten Path," set to be published by Down East Books in June. Also, recognizing it's December, she'll talk about how she hikes year round, often using ice cleats, snowshoes and skis to stay moving in the winter.

Bio:  Aislinn Sarnacki is a reporter for the Bangor Daily News for the Outdoors and Homestead sections, as well as the author of the guidebook “Family Friendly Hikes in Maine,” released by Down East Books in June 2017, and she is currently working on her second guidebook, "Maine Hikes Off the Beaten Path," scheduled to be released this spring. For the BDN, Aislinn produces stories and columns about outdoor recreation, especially hiking. To date, her BDN blog features videos, photos and descriptions of nearly 300 hikes throughout the state. She also writes weekly stories about Maine wildlife, conservation and outdoor recreation, which she often supplements with short videos and photos. Originally from Winterport, Maine, she graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a bachelor's degree in journalism. She now lives in Dedham with her husband and their dog, Oreo, and their cats, Bo and Arrow.
