Overview

Have you ever thought about checking out the new Maine Huts and Trails system but the thought of carrying an overnight backpack didn't appeal to you??? We have the solution for you! Join us for a week of great cross country skiing on the Maine Huts and Trails system of well-maintained trails. We'll have the opportunity, weather permitting, to visit each of the 4 huts without the burden of large backpacks. Enjoy the luxury of skiing with just a small daypack while enjoying the magnificent trails and scenery in the Bigelow area. Our accommodations will be in shared twin or triple rooms at the Claybrook Mountain Lodge in Highland Plantation. The lodge is owned by Greg, a certified EMT and Maine Guide, and his wife Pat. Pat is a fantastic cook who will spoil us with her homemade bread, muffins, cookies and multi course meals. Made to order breakfast, trail lunches and dinner are included in the trip fee. All meals from supper on Sunday February 4th (day of arrival) through and including lunch on Friday the 9th (day of departure). We will eat our trail lunch at one of the MHT huts whenever possible, so we can purchase hot food items as well. The Claybrook Lodge has twin and triple rooms located on 2 levels; with a shared bath on each floor. There is also a living room area on each floor and a large wood stove on the 1st floor. The facility is clean, cozy and rustic surrounded by an array of mountain peaks. Greg will act as our naturalist guide each day and will give us information on tracking, wildlife identification, tree identification and historical perspectives of the area. As a certified Maine Guide and EMT, his skills will increase our enjoyment of the area while maintaining a good level of safety. There will also be two AMC trip leaders on the excursion, both of whom are trained in Wilderness First Aid and CPR.
