We’re excited to announce our largest solar initiative since opening in 1998 — dubbed “Above The Grid.” Although we’ve added and updated our passive solar for helping to heat our water, we haven’t increased our photovoltaic capacity in over ten years.
This new 53.72 kW photovoltaic solar system addition will significantly increase our solar electric power at the Hike Inn, providing up to 69% of our electric energy needs.
Guests have interactive opportunities to use and learn about solar energy during their stay and on our daily facility tour.
Look here for monthly updates on the solar energy created (starting soon)

All of this would not be possible without the generous financial support of All Points North Foundation and the commitment of our Len Foote Hike Inn Board of Directors.
