Mt. Agamenticus


Since 1999 conservation work at Mount Agamenticus has focused on protecting the natural resources of the area by managing recreational use, remediating trails and habitats, and educating the public.

Thanks to the collaborative conservation efforts of many partners, volunteers, and donors, Mount A has become a wonderful place for the local community to enjoy the outdoors, experience its scenic beauty, and to appreciate its significance as one of “Maine’s Last Great Places.”
