OPEN DAILY 9AM ~ 4PM
2-22-17: Peace, solitude, lakes, mountains- we have it all here at the trails center! Come on up and experience the best kept secret in New England!
Heard in the yurt this week:
'We've skied all over New England and your trails center is hands down the best one we've skied, the views are spectacular, it's uncrowded, and soooo quiet!'
Temps above freezing, fresh mountain air, big snow, could it get any better than this? :) Two moose seen this past week on Upper Pumphouse! Just a reminder, please keep your distance from our big friends, they are wild animals! Lots of track, fresh skate on Pump, Pipe, Nats, Tote and Geneva. Trails will soften up as the temps warm up, trails will be firm until late morning. Best bike conditions will be in the AM :)
Open today for:
Classic Ski: Yes
Skate Ski: Yes
Bikes: AM, PM if trail surfaces stay firm.
Another mention online! Flipkey writes that the Trails Center is a must visit in Rangeley :)

has it that the gnomes are traveling from far and wide to build their
'tiny houses' at the Trails Center! New homes have sprung up on Geneva
and off the Lake Trail near Saddleback Lake! A big thank you to the RLRS
Outing Club, who have assisted these little creatures as they move in. Pick up a Gnome Roam map at the yurt and head out on a search for these special creatures- each gnome was handcrafted by local students and artists at the Rangeley Lakes Regional School.
A reminder that all trails are now closed to walking!
Season passes are available at the yurt or via form mail in - get yours today!
The fat bikes have landed! New this year we will have two fat bikes for rent at the yurt thanks to our local bike shop AJs Fat Bikes! We have access to rentals for up to ten bikers, just let us know a bit ahead so we can get them up to the yurt :) The fat bike loop is about 11K or 6.8 miles long, and will be on Tote, Pipeline, Nats Alley and Pumphouse. These are our widest trails and there should be plenty of width for all. Fat bikes should always yield to skiers and snowshoers. The bike lane is located on the side of the trail opposite from the classic track to preserve the track for classic skiers. Riding in warm weather and/or soft snow conditions create wheel ruts in the trails. If you are leaving a rut, or it is difficult to bike, the trail is too soft for biking and you should try another time.
Save the dates!
