    Maine Huts & Trails Offers Summer Trip Deals

    Maine Huts & Trails offers great opportunities to visitors this summer.

    Take a few days to explore Carrabassett Valley by bike and foot!

    Trip Itinerary:

    Day 1: Park at the Outdoor Center and bike from the Campbell Field Trailhead up to our newest Hut, Stratton Brook Hut. Relax and enjoy a delicious dinner and a spectacular sunset from the Hut’s high perch.

    Day 2: After breakfast, grab your trail lunch and wave so-long to the hut staff before biking down the hill and onto the Narrow Gauge Trail for some fun single and double-track biking. Hang a left when you get to Huston Brook Rd. and about a mile down, park the cycle and hike through the woods to the nearby Huston Brook Falls for lunch (and a swim to cool off!) Then its back to the bikes and straight on to Poplar Hut for night two.

    Day 3: Take your coffee at Poplar Stream Falls, just a short walk from the hut, before jumping back on the bike, past the hourglass ponds into the Bigelow Preserve. Park and hike up Little Bigelow for lunch and a view before heading back to Poplar for the night.

    Day 4: Another tasty breakfast then bid au revoir to the Poplar hut crew and bike back to your vehicle at the OC.
