An excerpt reads:

There are 80 pristine miles of beautiful backcountry trails, home-cooked locally-sourced meals paired with beers like Peak Brewery’s organic Fresh Cut pilsner, roaring fires in a cozy den, outdoor fire pits, and knowledgeable guides just waiting to whisk you away on a snowshoeing or cross-country skiing adventure. Whether you book a stay at Stratton Brook, the newest hut offering access to the Appalachian Trail in Bigelow Preserve, or opt for the Flagstaff Lake locale, the nonprofit’s off-the-grid lodges in Western Maine are affordable, uber-green—with composting toilets, radiant heat and lighting, and photovoltaic panels—and easily accessible by train, bus or 2.5 hour drive from Portland. Other perks include yurts along the trails for when you want to warm up or have a lunch break, a gear shuttle if you’d rather not carry your packs from the trailhead to the lodges, and regular festivities like BBQ feasts and guided photo tours hosted by Ciclismo Classico.
