This is a fabulous weekend trip for anyone looking for a fun-filled introduction to some of summer's most popular activities. Based out of Maine Hut and Trails' beautiful Flagstaff Lake Hut, this weekend getaway allows you to enjoy hiking, canoeing and kayaking in a lovely wilderness setting with expert instruction.

Our Registered Maine Guides will meet you at the Long Falls Dam Road trailhead on your first day and help you get your pack ready for an easy 1.8-mile hike into the hut. During your three-day stay, you'll be treated to guided excursions along the trails and on the lake around the Flagstaff Lake Hut, renowned for its beauty and state-of-the-art "off the grid" design.

You'll begin each full day of outdoor adventure with a hearty breakfast and end with a delicious dinner, relaxing in the comfortable main lodge as the sun sets over Flagstaff Lake.

Flagstaff Lake Hut offers comfortable bunkhouse style accommodations, which are usually mixed gender; although, single-gender accommodations may be requested at check-in. Excellent home-cooked meals and friendly company are the hallmark of this hut, so you'll feel right at home.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

§No electronic devices are allowed in order to conserve electric power. This includes hairdryers, electric shavers, hot-irons, laptops, iPads/iPods, portable/electronic games, etc. Mobile phones are allowed but cannot be charged. Please understand that reception may not be available.
