The Kennebec Land Trust has announced the publication of the second edition of its “The Kennebec Land Trust Hiking Guide: Take A Hike!”

According to a news release from the land trust, the second edition of “Take a Hike!” features 50 miles of trails and includes 12 new properties, as well as updates to the trails and maps featured in the 2014 edition. These 32 conservation lands include hilltop and shoreline properties and lake islands.

Each page features a unique property and includes directions, a map showing trails and lake access points, and recommended public uses and recreational opportunities. The publication of “Take a Hike!” was made possible by the time and expertise of LPK, a global brand design and innovation agency in Cincinnati, Ohio. LPK is committed to making a positive difference in people’s lives, socially, economically and environmentally. Mort Libby (1937-2017), former CEO of LPK, was a founding member of KLT. Mort’s wife Barbara is an East Winthrop summer resident and a long-time member of the KLT Advisory Board.

“Take a Hike!” will be available starting in early December at local stores and the Kennebec Land Trust office, as well as A Lakeside Studio Pottery’s booth at the Wayne Holiday Stroll on Dec. 5 and 6. It can also be ordered online at

The price is $18, tax included. All proceeds benefit the land trust.
