For non-motorized sports, we excel in our 45 miles of FREE cross-country ski trails winding through the peaceful woods. Stunning views of Katahdin can be found around any corner while skiing these trails. Some trails are wooded and protected on windy days while others are open and scenic. There are groomed tracks for traditional style skiing as well as back country trails where you may be the first to make tracks through fresh snow. Skiers can choose from several prime cross country skiing locations, with each location featuring solitude and unparalleled scenery.
Snowshoeing can be done almost anywhere! While some cross-country trails, such as the Bait Hole trails, have a separate area next to the track set for snowshoeing, many snowshoers prefer to break their own trails and experience the serenity of the Katahdin Region forests.
