The Maine Hut Trail is open for hiking, fat biking, X-C skiing and snowshoeing!
The Maine Hut Trail and mountain bike trails in the area of Stratton Brook Hut and Poplar Hut are in really good shape thanks to the efforts and sharp saws of MH&T, the Carrabassett Valley Trail Master Crew, CRNEMBA volunteers, and passers through who toss a saw in their pack just in case. Thank you. As the ground begins to freeze, please use caution as some of the bridges and trails may be slippery.
The bridges along the Dead River stretch of the MH Trail to Grand Falls Hut are in poor shape and the trail has not been mowed. We do not advise traveling on this trail at this time. Plans to repair and upgrade the bridges in 2022 are underway.
There are many great events on the trails and in the Valley this fall as we work diligently to climb out of the impacts of the pandemic, and our MH&T experience continues to improve:
