Hiking & Paddling Adventure

  • Amherst Mountain Route 9 - Ducktail Pond Trailhead Amherst, Maine (map)

Join MYA and Machelle LaHaye, yoga teacher and paddleboarding instructor, on a lovely hike in Amherst Mountains Community Forest blended with yoga and followed up with yummy food and a sweet paddling finale!

The adventure will begin at the trailhead off of Rt. 9 in Amherst. The Ducktail Pond Trail is beautiful, a gradual uphill forest lined trail. The narrow and at times rocky footpath loosely parallels Ducktail Brook up to the pond, which is reached in a little under half a mile. The pond is breathtaking!

Adventurers will enjoy the water views, take a snack break and continue hiking a bit further to take in Partridge Pond as well. We'll have some great yoga moments along the walk :)

Following the hike, we'll head out to Ellsworth for a scrumptious vegetarian picnic lunch where adventurers can meet ducks, chickens, a doggie, and other adorable pets.


Venturing forth out onto the water - adventurers can choose to bring their own watercraft such as a paddleboard, kayak or canoe - extras will be available for use as well. We'll paddle around a lovely cove and perhaps a bit further out into Graham Lake.

Cost: $45. Kiddos are welcome for free. Join us on a wonderful spring day, simply add to cart!
