28 Dec 10 Hut to Hut Hiking Trips All Year Round
Hut to Hut hiking trips are considered by most to be a warm weather activity. In spring, summer and fall, the pleasures of walking in the woods are obvious, bird song, wildflowers, lake views, gurgling streams. Hiking trips make a nice addition to Maine whitewater rafting vacations, but such a Hut to Hut adventure does not have to happen only in warm weather.
In the winter, Hut to Hut journeys require a bit more planning, warmer clothes and drier shoes. But whether you choose to make the hike on snowshoes or cross-country skis, a winter exploration of the Maine Huts and Trails system is a great way to spend a snowy day. The warm meals that await at the Huts, the crackling woodstoves, are even more welcoming than they are in the summer months. There is nothing like winding your way along a snowy trail knowing that at the end there is a hot bowl of soup waiting for you.
