The riding is very good with the exception of a couple trails we’ve been unable to pack. Go get on it!
We hope to have Sprocket back up and running before the end of the month from a drive shaft bearing failure.
Winter is upon us. The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center is open for riding (pass required), Maine Huts & Trails is grooming, and the intrepid CRNEMBA volunteers are creating a fantastic single-track winter riding experience. Unfortunately, COVID-19 remains a threat. The Carrabassett Valley Trails Committee needs your help to make sure we can do so safely and keep the trails open. All trail users must abide by State of Maine guidelines concerning travel and outdoor recreation. We ask all riders to ...
Use these resources before you ride to understand current restrictions and guidelines.
While certain Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions continue to evolve, the benefits of social distancing and the use of face masks in preventing transmission have remained constant. Please do not congregate on the trails or in parking areas and maintain appropriate distancing while riding. In accordance with State of Maine requirement, please wear a face covering (nose and mouth) when riding in busy parts of the network such as the Narrow Gauge and have one at the ready in less congested areas in case you have an unexpected encounter with other trail users. Consider the risk to others as well as yourself when on the trails or in other public spaces. Refer to the resources listed above for more detailed guidelines.
Riding CVTrails is made possible through the generosity of the residents of Carrabassett Valley, the State of Maine, Sugarloaf, the Penobscot Indian Nation, and other landowners. Please respect the privilege we have been given and abide by all signage on the trails, at trail heads, and at other parking and public areas.
We are in this together, and we’ll get through it together.Town of Carrabassett Valley: Dave Cota (Chairman), Deb Bowker, Josh Tauses
The Huts are closed to all entry including for water, restrooms, etc. While caretakers are present, they are trying to keep a safe environment and must sanitize when people try to open the doors, etc.
We always welcome snowshoers on our trails, especially to help pack out after storms. Any specific requests will be added below here. Otherwise... Stick to the original trail as closely as you can. When slabbing (going across a slope, "off camber") stay towards the high side pushing snow on the low side to flatten the trail. Try to push the snow off bridges instead of packing them. We like to maintain a wood surface on the bridges otherwise they "pyramid" with snow and become too narrow to safely pass. We shovel the bridges, full length, all the way down to the wood. If you beat us there, soveling out Sprocket a foot or two around each side plus snow off the top is a welcome sight!

Trail is open.
Trail is open, but has condition you should be aware of. In winter months this also means we are not confident the trail will be firm enough for winter bikers.
Trail is closed, do not pass.
This trail condition page is hosted by CRNEMBA on behalf of the Carrabassett Valley trails Committee (CVTC). The CVTC is a partnership between the Town of Carrabassett Valley, CRNEMBA, Maine Huts & Trails and Sugarloaf created to coordinate and fuel the growth and maintenance of the unique, world class trail system here in the Carrabassett Region. A subcommittee was recently appointed to manage the maintenance and opening and closing of the trails. The following will guide those decisions:
