Early spring has never exactly been the most celebrated time of year in Maine. People planning a hiking adventure or ski trip tend to skip over late March through early June, and maybe that makes sense for some, who prefer their Maine be covered in fluffy snow or grassy fields. But there is a hidden magic in the forgotten days in between. With winter almost over, and spring shyly...

Solo travel, (not singles travel- that’s a different subject altogether) is kind of having a moment. You can’t scroll too far on any Instagram feed without seeing at least a few shots of someone ‘Eat, Pray, Loving’ their way through a fabulous adventure. It really shouldn’t come as a surprise that so many people are choosing to hit the trails alone- independence, self-awareness, and an adventurous...

Skis at the Wax Room

There’s nothing quite like the brisk mountain air hitting your lungs, and the invigorating feeling of working up a sweat in the middle of a snow covered wilderness. That’s one reason we love Nordic skiing at Maine Huts & Trails.
