Volunteer Hut Caretakers

Maine Huts & Trails is seeking volunteer hut caretakers during self-service season. Caretakers live at the huts for a period of two to twelve weeks, with room and board provided. This is a unique opportunity to live rent-free and off-the-grid, with a recreational playground at your fingertips! Kayaking, canoeing, biking, hiking, and camping are right out your door. Caretakers welcome visitors, and must be attentive to the cleanliness and maintenance of the hut. The caretaker will ideally be an outgoing person who enjoys sustainable living and outdoor recreation and appreciates the Maine outdoors.

Volunteers are needed periodically to help with duties in the Kingfield office. Projects include inventory tracking, data entry, general organizational tasks, and more! You'll get an up-close look at the inner workings of the organization, and will be encouraged to share your ideas and expertise.

Sign Repair & Maintenance

We have new trail signs! They're cut and carved, and now they need to be painted. If you have a steady hand and a few extra hours, we'd love to have your help getting our new signs ready for the trail.

Special Events

Volunteers are occasionally needed to assist staff during special events like our Fall BBQ.

Trail Work

Trail projects range from light and easy to heavy and demanding. Volunteers will be guided by the trail crew, so all levels of experience are welcome. In addition, any necessary training and tools will be provided. Each volunteer is asked to wear appropriate boots and bring gloves, bug repellent, water and snacks. Volunteers on site for an entire day will be recognized with a MH&T hat. Groups are always welcome! 

Please call our office to make your reservation (207) 264-2400 for Trail Work Weekends.
