Ran the North Country Run half marathon here. Beautiful country that was challenging. May have to visit this winter for some snowshoeing.
We have x-country ski'd Big M many times. The trails are usually groomed by volunteers (a donation is suggested but not mandatory). The level of difficulty runs the full gamut from easy thru difficult. We like to bring our dog along as do many other people. It's beautiful country, well worth the trip. Catamount trail is only for physically fit skiers who are up for a challenge.
