Navigating Trails at Libby Hill

Libby Hill now contains over twelve miles of trails that are contained within two hundred acres of land. This high density of trails results in challenges in representing trails and intersections on a single printed map. For this reason, we are currently only representing trails with blazes on our maps. You may access the narrow-unmarked mountain bike trails on several digital mapping apps, please see them on our Digital Maps page. A general rule of thumb for new trail users is stay on blazed trails only. If you wander off on non-blazed trails, be sure you comfortable with topo or mountain bike maps to find your way.

Trails with Blazes

  • Wide Blazed Trails – These are designed for cross-country skiing are consist of four major trails, Moose Odyssey, Deer Run, Turkey Trot, and Holmquist Hollow. These are color coded with paint blazes on trees that match the printed and Google Digital Map. Please note, when these trails are groomed for skiing, non-skiers are not allowed.
  • Narrow Blazed Trails – These narrow track trails are designed for hiking, snowshoeing, and mountain biking. You may use these trails in winter for snowshoeing and hiking. Blazes will match to our printed and Google Maps.

Trails without Blazes

  • Unmarked Mountain Bike Trails – New narrow unmarked trails for mountain biking exist on several areas on Libby Hill. Because of their density and multiple intersections signage and map making is not being supported. Most mountain bikers use digital map applications and navigate those trails using those. You are more than welcome to explore these trails but be aware they can be difficult to navigate without an app and may lead you off property to private landowners.
  • ATV/Snowmobile Trails – These wide and eroded trails are easy to recognize. Two miles of these trails connect Ramsdell Road to Crystal Lake, and they intersect the trails several times. They do have some signage but keep in mind they do lead off the Libby Hill property. Please move off trails when vehicles approach.
  • Old Libby Hill Road – This road begins just beyond the parking area and is a gravel road that services two streets up the hill and continues toward Little Sebago Lake. Note this is a private road that is co-owned by all the landowners, including the Town of Gray and GCE. We encourage you to use this road only for rapid exits from the top of the hill and minimize your usage of it. No parking is allowed anywhere along this road including at the gate at the top of the hill. The gate near the cell tower driveway is closed most of the time. Only authorized landowners and trail maintenance crews are allowed beyond the gate.

Unusual Blazes – You may notice pink markings on two of our property boundaries on the Outback and Harold Libbey Trails. These are for survey purposes only and not intended for navigation. You may also see other survey marks of varying colors on other boundaries. Survey marks can be distinguished by the straight line they form that is usually not cut out for trails. Finally, you may see some orange slash marks on trees in unusual places. The forest manager uses these to assess tree removal in future. They are not intended for navigation.
