Guided Hike with Paige Emerson, Founder of Chubby Hiker Reviews

FBC is excited to offer a guided hike with Registered Maine Guide and Founder of Chubby Hiker Reviews, Paige Emerson, at our Day Ridges Preserve in Gouldsboro!

Too often, outdoor spaces and trails can appear as exclusive spaces. Beginner hikers, or hikers that aren’t being represented in traditional outdoor recreation marketing, may experience unfair barriers to participation in Maine’s outdoor activities. In 2020 when Paige Emerson was out hiking, she noticed quickly that one of those barriers was the unrealistic ratings of trail “difficulty” for all body types. Motivated to change that, Chubby Hiker Reviews was born! Their mission is to encourage people of all body types and sizes to recreate responsibly in the great Maine outdoors. If you relate to Paige’s message, we hope you’ll join us on this hike.

FBC strives to make nature accessible to everyone in our community, but we recognize we have a long way to go. If you have comments or reviews for trails, please share them with FBC’s Director of Communications & Community Engagement at Ellie@FrenchmanBay.org. Feedback is the best way for us to make progress – we’re all in this together!

Hike Details:Located on Route 1 in Gouldsboro, the Day Ridges Preserve offers two miles of hiking trails. Bog bridging allows hikers to explore a cedar swamp and wind around impressive boulders, also known as glacial erratics. The trail for this hike is an approximately 1.75 mile loop from the trailhead parking lot.

To keep our staff, volunteers, and other program participants safe, please stay home if you have any symptoms consistent with cold. Thank you!

This hike is limited to 12 registrants, so please sign up early! All participants must register individually.
