Come run, walk or roll through Pine Tree Camp’s fully accessible trails in the heart of the Maine woods. Pine Tree Camp’s 285-acre campus on the shore of North Pond in Rome is the perfect setting for people of all abilities to come together and enjoy a picturesque 5K to raise money in support of people with disabilities.
The route takes runners, walkers, and rollers on fully accessible nature trails through the woods, along the waterfront, and around many special places where overnight summer camp memories have been made since 1945. It’s Maine like you’ve never seen it before!
