Details of Maine Huts & Trails, Kingfield, Maine Kayaking & Canoeing Details for Maine Huts & Trails

Active Adventure

With 80 miles of trails professionally maintained throughout the mountains and river valleys of Western Maine, the stage is set for true backcountry adventure. Mountain bikers have access to some of New England's most exciting single track. Hikers can reach summits of 4000' and higher. Paddlers float along the slow moving Dead River, and can explore the pristine beauty of Flagstaff Lake. In the winter, trails are accessible by ski, snowshoe, or fat bike, and are groomed with a set track. All trails are people-powered, with no motorized vehicles allowed... a true escape into the wild.

Typical Day

Spend your days exploring the backcountry of Western Maine; home to moose, deer, eagles, and views you have to see to believe. Return in the evening to a spectacular off-the-grid lodge in time for a locally sourced dinner before settling into a comfy leather chair in front of a roaring fire. Enjoy a glass of wine or beer from the well-curated selection, and relax with a book from the hut library. In the summer, kick back on the screened porch or watch the stars from the outdoor fire pit while planning the next day's adventure.

Age range, type of group

With four huts to choose from, there are options for almost every age and ability level. The shortest distance to a hut is a flat and easy 1.8 miles. This is a great destination for families, couples, or even large groups. Guided trips are available and scheduled throughout the year for every activity. As a safe and gentle retreat to nature and plenty of opportunities to reflect, this is also an ideal choice for solo travelers.

Sleeping and meals

During full-service season (December-March, and July-October), three fantastic meals are included with your stay, with lunch packed for the trail. Shared bunks sleep 4-8 people, and private rooms are available on request.


The huts are open all year for anyone to enjoy, but since the trails pass through protected wildlife habitats, dogs are not allowed. All facilities are non-smoking.

Rates & Availability

Rates vary depending on season. Full season rates start at $90 per person per night, including all meals. In self-service season (mid-March through early July, and mid-October through late November), rates start at $40 per person per night, which does not include meals.
