Nestled in a col between two 4,000-foot peaks, Mizpah Spring Hut is just a short distance from the fabled Crawford Path. Visit this lovely spot in the boreal forest, and explore the southern peaks of the Presidential Range. An easy 2.6 miles from the trailhead, Mizpah Spring Hut welcomes all in the summer and fall.
No tent or camping equipment necessary. The huts offer hikers of all levels a fantastic entry point into backcountry travel. No camping experience required! Bunk bed accommodations allow you to leave your bulky sleeping bag at home. Enjoy in-season home-cooked breakfast and dinner, cold running water and composting or waterless toilets.

This is moderately strenuous retreat that will test your limits while bringing you back in touch with nature. Please be prepared to hike on steep and rocky terrain while carrying a bag with snacks and layers that can weigh between 10-20 pounds. While we encourage hiking novices to sign up, we recommend that you be in good athletic shape and capable of continuous activity for at least four hours at a time. The yoga will be gentle and empowering. No need to hike a yoga mat into the mountains, but I do recommend bringing a towel. This retreat is on rain or shine, so bring your raincoat and pack quick dry (non cotton) materials.
