COVID-19 Policy

Maine Huts & Trails – COVID19 Policy

  • All guests, staff & volunteers (who are eligible for a COVID19 vaccination) must be fully vaccinated against COVID19 at least 2 weeks prior to visiting Maine Huts & Trails.
  • For those who are not eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, including children, common sense precautions will apply.
  • At this time we are requiring that all hut staff & guests wear a mask in the common areas of the hut. Hut staff will also be taking periodic testing. 
  • If you have planned an upcoming overnight trip and your party has been affected by COVID-19, our cancellation policy is as follows:  If you or anyone in your party has tested positive for COVID-19, preventing you from embarking on your trip, upon receiving a photograph of your positive test, we will fully refund your reservation, or provide a credit to use by the end of the 2022-23 winter season.

Maine Huts & Trails Board of Directors and Staff understand that you may have many questions and concerns regarding the pandemic and how it relates to your upcoming backcountry experience at Maine Huts & Trails. Please know that we are taking all necessary steps to be at the forefront of operating in a manner that adheres to all local, regional and national guidelines and we are working closely with the Maine CDC to ensure that all of our guests and visitors are provided with a safe experience this season.

We are continually reviewing and updating our policies to make sure we are ready for you. If new information becomes available, we will pass it along to you as soon as we get it and the information will be posted on our website and sent out in our e-mail newsletter.

Our team is implementing many new protocols to provide a safe and healthy experience to our guests this winter season; however, we cannot guarantee that COVID-19 will not find its way into our lodge. We ALL need to do our part by showing up healthy and to not come inside the Huts or Lodge area if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19. Individuals choosing to stay at Maine Huts & Trails are assuming personal responsibility and accepting risks regarding COVID-19.
