Carter Notch Hut surprises most with its intimate and unimaginably beautiful setting. Hike 3.8 miles to reach this hut and encounter a world of rock jumbles, towering cliffs, and tranquil mountain lakes. This eastern anchor of AMC’s hut system was built in 1914, and after 100 years, continues to lure those in search of quieter trails and unforgettable summits.
With its two detached bunkhouses and stone hut, Carter Notch Hut is open year-round. During the full-service summer and fall season, fuel up with delicious, homemade breakfasts and dinners for the day’s exploration of the Carter and Wildcat ranges.
