The New England Outdoor Center, located just eight miles from the south entrance of Baxter State Park and  Katahdin, (the northern terminus of the AT) provides families and friends of people hiking northbound on the Appalachian Trail a great place to stay and reunite with their friends or loved ones as their months on the trail come to an end.

Our Maine hiking and backpacking trails are perfect for mountain hiking and day hiking. The Penobscot Outdoor Center is the closest lodging to  Katahdin and provides the perfect place for hikers to rest and relax after long day on the trails.

Hikers can also enjoy their stay with friends and family at our convenient lodging options and the amenities of our cozy cabins or new Coveside Guest Houses.
