EASE INTO THE BACK­COUN­TRY

FROST MOUN­TAIN YURTS BROWNFIELD, MAINE

Backpacker - - VIEW WITH A ROOM -

As far as we can tell, only two types of peo­ple stay at huts lo­cated less than a quar­ter-mile from the trail­head: those with kids and those who don’t want to skimp on lux­u­ries. Ei­ther way, the four Frost Moun­tain Yurts de­liver in spades. Each shel­ter sleeps about six, has a Chopped- wor­thy kitchen (in­clud­ing a grill), a wood-burn­ing stove, and, best of all, a so­lar shower. The front-door ac­cess to easy hik­ing isn’t half-bad, ei­ther: Hit the Frost Moun­tain Sum­mer Trail, which heads 1 mile south to the top of its 1,225-foot name­sake, where views stretch all the way to the White Moun­tains.
