A string of Appalachian Mountain Club-owned sporting camp lodges allow for multi-night wilderness treks along groomed backcountry trails with views of snow-draped peaks in the forested Moosehead Lake region. The AMC will shuttle your gear. At night, you'll retreat to a private wood-stove-heated log cabin after chowing down on a home-cooked meal, such as Haddock Florentine, served at the central dining building. The sauna and hot showers at the newly renovated Gorman Chairback Lodge will remedy your trail-weary bones.
