If you haven’t heard of us, we are a non-profit organization located in western Maine that operates 4 off-the-grid, backcountry eco-lodges with over 80 miles of people-powered recreational trails. In the winter months (December – March) we groom and track our trails for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.
Overnight guests at our huts receive two hot meals prepared by our staff using Organic, locally sourced ingredients, as well as a bagged lunch for the trail. All of our lodges feature composting toilets, hot showers, cozy lounge areas and drying rooms to keep you warm and comfortable throughout your adventure.
We offer group discounts, Full-Hut rentals and a variety of guided and unguided adventures for groups of all ages and ability levels. Our Recreation Programming Manager, Lani Cochrane, is a Registered Maine Guide who has been featured in many Outdoor publications, including; Maine Magazine and Women’s Quarterly. Her superior knowledge of the Maine woods and Scenic Waterways make her a huge asset not only to the Maine Huts & Trails team but for the guests coming to visit the huts. Lani can lead your group through our extensive trail network while sharing her love and knowledge of the surrounding area.
This March, 2015, we will be hosting our annual Maine Huts & Trails Marathon and Ski Tour. This is a great opportunity to test your skills in either a competitive environment or on a casual day ski. We will be offering 20K, 40K and 60K race formats with multiple age categories. Come experience the beauty of the western mountains of Maine while exploring the Maine Huts & Trails system.
