Welcome to Maine Huts & Trails

Returning friends, guests, members and volunteers – thank you for coming to take a look.  We are on a journey to a new future for the organization.

If this is your first visit to our site, we are glad you are here and we have much information to share.

We are open for our wonderful Self-Service experience this winter. The huts are open, heated, and comfortable. Pack in your own gear and food. Volunteer caretakers are at the huts to greet you and make you feel at home, and our commercial kitchen is at your disposal for you to create your own fantastic culinary backcountry meals.  If you don’t want to carry a pack, no problem, we can connect you with local services that can get your gear where it needs to be.

We are here because of a thousand voices and contributions that cheered us on and made being open possible.  Our growing ranks of intrepid volunteers are stewarding our huts and helping on the trails. We are working hard for our bright future, and are so grateful to everyone who is helping us get there in many, many important ways.

Come on out this winter – to enjoy a Maine Huts & Trails Experience!

Volunteer Caretakers

While we're in self-service mode, the Huts are staffed with a small army of dedicated, reliable, and trained volunteer caretakers. If you’re interested in joining this elite and invaluable group, we'd love to hear with you!  Applications are reviewed on a regular basis and monthly caretaker training's are held at rotating Huts.
