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.
Spring: All Huts - 3/30-6/21
Fall: Flagstaff, Poplar, Stratton Brook - 10/29-12/13
Fall: Grand Falls - 10/22-1/11/19
Sign Repair & Maintenance
Our trail signs are made from native white cedar planks donated by Fontaine Lumber. The signs are cut to length by the trail crew and volunteers, sanded and corners rounded, then stained before heading to Winterstick Snowboards to be lettered by their talented snowboard engineers. Signs on the trail are exposed to UV rays and all kinds of weather. We keep them fresh by applying a coat of Thompson's Water Seal every year. If you have any interest in hiking hut to hut with a bucket and a paint brush, we'd love to use your sign preserving talent! Give us a call and we'll get you set up!
Please call our office to make your reservation (207) 264-2400 for Trail Work Weekends.
