That's the idea

When I wrote about Maine Huts & Trails earlier this year, I said that one of the organization's challenges would be to raise public recognition -- not only about their facilities, but about Maine's inland landscape in general. Well, in winning Yankee Magazine's Best Walk in the Woods award, they've taken a step in both directions. Not only does the award bring attention to MH&T's proposed 180-mile walking trail, which will eventually be dotted with 12 rugged yet comfortable lodges, it also highlights that section of Maine's wilderness, and the outdoor activities that it encourages (swimming, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, etc.).
