Join North Star Adventures for a winter exploration of our country’s newest National Monument, Katahdin Woods and Waters (KWW), and Maine’s iconic Baxter State Park. Our weekend begins with a stay in a cozy warm cabin and a community meal. We will use snowshoes and skis to explore the mountains, trails, and frozen lakes of this winter wonderland.The new moon phase should provide an opportunity to gaze upon the awe-inspiring Maine night sky. This trip is designed for both novices and seasoned winter adventurers. We will learn how to safely enjoy the winter environment through human-powered sports while experiencing the solitude offered by the largest tract of unspoiled wilderness in the eastern United States.The options for exploring this wondrous winter landscape are many. Our daily schedule will be determined by group interest and ability.
The beauty and stillness of the Maine Woods in winter is simply stunning. The East Branch of the Penobscot River and views of Mount Katahdin will provide a beautiful backdrop for our trek into this wilderness area. The silence of the woods, animal tracks, geological wonders, and majestic mountain views will inspire us on our journey.
We will be staying in cabins with all the amenities. Trip includes nightly accommodations, meals, and snowshoes. Please notify me for any dietary restrictions.
