Trail Conditions

In the winter months, Maine Huts & Trails provides a backcountry trail experience for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and fat-biking. The trails take a break in the spring for mud season, and return in the summer for biking, hiking, trail running and exploring.

Current Trail Conditions 2/21

Conditions are packed and fast. Skiers, use caution on the upper sections of Newton's Revenge near Stratton Hut. Feel free to kick off the skis and walk on the side of the trail if needed. Chance of snow and light rain Friday, please do your snow dance! Please note, our trails are multi-use. Conditions may change throughout the day.. Full report and photos below on our social media sites.

We post trail condition updates, reels, and stories to the Maine Huts & Trails Facebook Page and the Maine Huts & Trails Instagram Page
