Maine Huts & Trails was the brainchild of Larry Warren in the 1970’s. His vision was for a series of backcountry huts allowing for multi-day cross-country ski trips from Moosehead Lake to the Mahoosuc Mountain Range. What that became is four off-the-grid huts along an 80 mile trail system.
While off-the-grid the huts do have nice amenities including solar power feeding batteries, hydro power in one hut, wood heat, composting toilets and more. Kitchen facilities are available during self-service seasons (Fall – November & December, and Winter) while during full-service seasons (Summer and Fall – September & October) breakfast, lunch, trail bag lunch, dinner and beer and wine to purchase are available.
Activities available along the hut/trail system include:
- Mountain biking (fatbiking in winter)
- Bird watching
- Fly fishing
- Cross country skiing
