Trail Angels stay at the Lodge at Moosehead Lake

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Mother, son, daughter, daughter-in-law and grand daughter all stayed at the lodge to celebrate the completion of the Appalachian trail by the grandson. They are all avid hikers and wanted to experience what their grandson was experiencing as he finished this momentous goal at Katahdin. In the process they came across other hikers as well. A couple of young men had very bad equipment including broken hiking sticks.  This group, replaced their polls and they were off for more adventure.  The next day, they came across a hiker that was very sick.  They took him to the local hospital to find out he had pneumonia.  They got him antibiotics and a hotel room for the night. This group was truly Trail Angels and I’m sure angels no matter where they go. We welcome them back to Moosehead any time.

Hike to Moxie Falls

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Here Dennis and Chloe (the lodge dog) take you on a personal tour of Moxie Falls, an easy and very beautiful hike. Water is currently high and the falls are very full. There are two ways to get to the beginning of this hike – one utilizes Maine highways and the other is a dirt road where a minimum of a SUV is recommended. Moxie Falls is the highest waterfall in New England – over 90 feet and well worth the visit. The Lodge can prepare a picnic lunch with 24 hour notice or provide Moose-A-Lix for an easy snack. Just ask.
