EASE INTO THE BACKCOUNTRY
FROST MOUNTAIN YURTS BROWNFIELD, MAINE
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.
