Maine Huts and Trails director to step down

The Associated Press

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine — The first and only executive director of an organization that’s developing a backcountry network of huts along 180 miles of trails in Maine’s western mountains is stepping down.

The Maine Huts and Trails nonprofit is looking for a new executive director to replace David Herring, who has been with the organization since 2005 and plans to move on after this winter.

Maine Huts and Trails was formed with the long-term aim of building 12 overnight shelters and nonmotorized trails stretching from near the New Hampshire border to the Moosehead Lake region. Each shelter has a main lodge, private rooms with beds, hot showers and home-cooked meals.

So far, the organization has built three huts along 50 miles of trails.
