Winter 2020-2021 Update

 

Stratton Brook Hut Plans Are Taking Shape for Feburary and March

While we were able to pivot to offer overnights at Flagstaff Hut to individual families groups this summer and fall, regrettably, due to the challenges of COVID, our huts will not be open this winter for overnight guests. Currently, regrettably, for the safety of our volunteers and our community, Stratton Brook Hut is not open to day visitors. 

We will be rolling out a series of opportunities in February and March to get out, get active, and come up to Stratton Brook Hut for the views, wamth by an outside fire, and enjoy some food and beverages.  More details are forethcoming, but look out for Big Tree Catering to come to the Hut on Saturday, February 27 and the Valley's own Spencer Lee will be serving up delicious fare on Saturday March 6.  More weeked-day events are filling-in, so watch this space.

Get Active - Stay Active, Outdoors, Amidst the Mountains, Forests and Waters of Western Maine.

Now more than ever, friends and families need to be outside. Children need to be outside.  More people are seeking experiences outdoors - to be together, to connect, to relax, to rejuvenate or to roam. Maine Huts & Trails exists to keep our special gateway open to the backcountry experiences of Western Maine.

We Are Doing This - We Will Bridge COVID and are Building Momentum for a Bright Future For Maine Huts & Trails.

Get ready to point your cross-country skis, snowshoes, and fat-tires toward Stratton Brook Hut this winter. Our groomers will be out on the trails, laying down miles of winter enjoyment. Working with the Town of Carrabassett Valley and our partners at CRNEMBA, together we are going to create one of the greatest winter playgrounds to get outside, stay apart, and feed our inner adventurous souls.

MH&T Volunteers - The Foundation Blocks of 2020

We wish to thank the many dozens of volunteer caretakers who did such an outstanding job attending to the huts this summer. Thanks to your efforts, the huts are in really good shape, the trails are terrific, and our mission and vision are still alive. Between the first week of July and the last week of October, families and COVID prepared "social bubbles" were able to enjoy the splendor of Flagstaff Hut. What an opportunity to share in a special place during a crazy, crazy time. With winter soon upon us, we will need stewardship help at Stratton Brook Hut. Visit our volunteer page for more information. And Thank You.
