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.
