Trail Conditions Carrabassett Valley Trails Committee

Wednesday, May 22nd

As of now, the only trails open at the Outdoor center will be the Snail and Rt 27 connector, as well as pump track.

The entirety of the network is very wet, still draining.  To include single track and nordic trails.  The pond itself is still overflowing the trail where it exits, as well the upper roads are still very soft.  Therefore we have posted closed signage, as well as a few ropes to solidify a true closing.

That said, we’ve been doing a ton of blowdown and upkeep of the single tracks so when things do start drying they’ll be ready to go.

As for now,  gauge single tracks will remain open.  MHT single tracks still closed as we have yet to get to that side of the road, reports are soft and muddy in spots.

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:

  • Trail closure avoids costly damage when a significant length of trail surface is soft enough to rut with a tire. Efforts to repair damaged trails use resources better spent on new trails, and lead to longer term closures.
  • The CVTC and its subcommittee understand and share the desire to ride and intend to keep the trails open as often as possible! During spring and fall months, following some weather events, and depending on ground saturation, system wide closure may be necessary.
  • Closure decisions will be made by the subcommittee and will be based on input from a network of local riders.
  • Trail closures and openings will be made public via the CRNEMBA website Trail Conditions page and at Trailhead kiosks.
  • This is not yet an exact science. The subcommittee will do its best to adjust the criteria for determining closure as it continues to gain experience.
  • Landowners (e.g. Sugarloaf, Town of Carrabassett Valley) or leaseholders (e.g. MH&T) may exercise their right to a final say on closing or opening of certain trails.
