Grand Falls Hut is the most remote of all the Maine Huts and Trails huts. And for this weekend it is all ours. We have reserved the entire hut (32 beds) for two nights. While remote, it is the most accessible by car (a half mile service road walk) or by foot. It is a 7.8 mile flat hike from the Big Eddy trailhead off Long Falls Dam Road.

This is "light backpacking". You need bedding, clothes, personal items and food. We have the use of the commercial kitchen and refrigeration. Sleep is bunk room style with generally six beds to a room.

The hut is fully operational: Heat, hot water, showers, composting toilets (indoors even).

It would cost $40 per person per night to stay at this hut on your own. This trip is being offered for $40 per person for the entire weekend. Sorry, this is non-refundable. If you sign up but can't go, you must find a replacement.

You can come for one night or two.

Please contact Tammy/Peter Mullen with questions. Email: pcm25@maine.rr.com. Payments can be sent to 38 Lawrence Rd, Gray, 04039. Please make checks out to "Peter Mullen". This trip sold out last year.

You will be on your own for food/beverage except for Saturday night and Sunday morning. You will have access to the commercial kitchen. We are planning a potluck HH/Pizza/Salad Bar buffet for Saturday evening and a good old MOAC pancake breakfast Sunday morning. We will have coffee/tea/hot chocolate, at least in the morning. The caretaker of the hut for our weekend is scheduled to be original MOACer, Phil Poirier.
