We offer over 80 miles of free, year-round, multi-use trails in the Northwestern Maine mountains. Thanks to generous land owners and donors, Maine Huts & Trails continues to ensure public access to remote and special places to all for generations to come. In the winter, our trails provide a curated backcountry experience for skiers, snowshoers, and fat bikers. Once the snow melts and summer comes around, our trail network expands to welcome hikers, mountain bikers, and trail runners. The Maine Hut Trails connect to the Appalachian Trail, Bigelow Range with numerous 4,000 footers, miles of mountain bike trail, and more. Discover what our trails have to offer here!
We woke up to a gorgeous layer of 3-4" of fresh powder this Friday! The recent warm weather, and subsequent cool down, has packed our trails down and left them variable. This snow added a nice layer for skiers to enjoy. Great for snowshoeing and fat biking, a little fast for skiing in places. Please note, our trails are multi-use. Conditions may change throughout the day. Visit Instagram, Facebook, and Carrabassett trails page for the most updated trail information and photos, and our trail conditions page for any reroutes and closures.
