Wendy Weiger

Monson A.T. Visitor Center Manager

Wendy Weiger is a former medical researcher who left Boston’s halls of academe for the wilds of Maine’s North Woods. She has explored the Maine Woods in all seasons—in hiking boots, by canoe, on snowshoes and skis—trekking thousands of miles up mountains and down rivers. Her favorite routes include the Appalachian Trail, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, and the backcountry trails of Baxter State Park.

Wendy is a writer, environmental advocate, and Registered Maine Guide. She lives in an off-the-grid cabin on First Roach Pond, about ten miles from the midpoint of the Hundred Mile Wilderness, the most remote section of the A.T.
