Maine Huts & Trails will be celebrating the opening of their newest hut, the Stratton Brook Hut, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, December 12th! Stratton Brook is the fourth of twelve planned huts at Maine Huts & Trails, and links 50-miles of hut-to-hut trail adventures. Tours of the new hut, as well as refreshments and food will be provided. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. RSVP is recommended but not required.
The event will run from 10 AM – 1 PM, with the ribbon cutting at 11 AM.
Directions: Access to the hut by personal vehicle is not possible but hiking directions can be provided or a special shuttle can be arranged if requested with RSVP. Guests should park at the Route 27/Stratton Brook trailhead. From there, guests can hike the 2.9 mile distance along the fully-signed trail to the hut or take the Maine Huts & Trails shuttle up part of the way then hike the final half-mile to the hut. When RSVP-ing, guests should indicate if they require shuttle services.
