Last change on Thursday, June 17th. Trails checked daily.
The majority of the trail network is now open to riding. Please pay attention to trails closed on lands of the Penobscot Nation.
The Penobscot Nation has graciously granted trail access on an annual basis in the past and we have contacted them for 2021 permission. Until we receive such permission, and resolve any underlying concerns that may be preventing it, riders do not have permission to access portions of the CVTrails network on Penobscot Nation Lands. Respect for landowners is imbedded in the CRNEMBA mission statement and vital to the culture that we have all worked to develop in the Carrabassett Region riding community. Please do not ride on Penobscot Nation Lands until we receive permission. As of May 24, 2021 this unfortunately includes the Carriage Road linking Carrabassett Valley and the Flagstaff area.
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.
It wasn’t the best of years... but it wasn’t the worst of years either. Over the past twelve plus months, riders and the community at large in Carrabassett Valley pulled together to help keep everyone safe. Those efforts, along with cooperation amongst the CVTC partners allowed us all to get outside and enjoy the trails during these trying times. For many of us, the benefits of that “outside time” played a big part in getting us through the pandemic. Fortunately, the improving situation in Maine and elsewhere means that face masks are no longer required when riding CVTrails. This is welcome news ahead of the 2021 summer riding season. Nonetheless, please respect the fact that some folks may take a cautious approach as they emerge from the threat of COVID. The State of Maine Covid-19 Response Page remains a good resource for any general developments and see the NEMBA COVID-19 Guidance for Rides and Trail Care Events for mountain biking specific recommendations.
Get out there, be grateful for the experience, and enjoy the ride!

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:
