Trail Conditions

Maine Huts & Trails employs a full time grooming and trail maintenance crew that works hard all year to keep the trails in excellent condition. They make sure the wilderness remains as untouched as possible, while still allowing safe, people-powered access to nature. If you notice a section of trail that needs attention, please let us know
