Libby Hill Trails provide four season recreation to southern Maine residents. There are two types of blazed trails to accommodate a variety of activities. We also recommend you visit our Navigating Libby Hill page to familiarize yourself for blazed and unmarked trails.
Wide Trails – Our five miles of wide track trails (15 feet wide) are designed for competition level cross country skiing. Designed by world-famous trail designer John Morton, the wide trails provide a good mix elevation changes and contours.
Trails include Moose Odyssey, Turkey Trot, Deer Run, and Holmquist Hollow. Winter trail usage is limited to skiing only on wide trails. In other seasons walking and running these trails will give the trail user park like experience.
Narrow Trails – Three miles of narrow trails are designed to give trail users a wild woods experience. The trails are single track and wind through boulders, trees, and cross Thayer Brook. These trails provide some of the best snowshoeing terrain in southern Maine. In summer, these trails are popular with mountain bikers and hikers. These trails include Lynx, Ghost, Harold Libbey, and Outback trails.
