trail locations for Maine

I have had the opportunity to snowshoe and cross country ski this trail a few different times. I have done with with my three children as well as with my best friend. The trail is easy to follow is easy to do both snowshoeing and cross country skiing but be aware it is used by snowmobiles. Everyone we can across was respectful and slowed down, we also made sure we moved off to the side when we heard the machines. It's a beautiful walk through the winter woods. We parked by the baseball field across from the high school and easily got on the trail. You will have to cross route 4 if you park here. Another option is to park in the Hannaford parking lot and and hit the trail there. We did not complete the entire trail but we did make a day of it. There are places to grab lunch on the way if you please.

trail needs to be marked better, easy to get yourself turned around snowshoeing if you are not on the snowmobile trail.

Short, steep trail to amazing views! very icy on ledges on winter so don't forget traction!

This place is a find! We did snowshoeing on the Noyes trail. The trail is well marked and of moderate difficulty. The highlight was the overlook over Pennesseewassee Lake. The warning hut was open and staffed by friendly, helpful volunteers. There's no charge, so please put a generous donation in the jar. Roberts Farm Preserve is highly recommended.

Surprisingly challenging trail! Especially when you're backpacking. BUT the views are stunning and it's the most beautiful trail on the East Coastline. There are lots of rocks so expect some scrambling, and there's no freshwater, so you have to bring your own. The beaches aren't sandy, so if you're going to go in, wear water shoes. We did the trail during a 3-day backpacking trip, with two different campsites (which are first come first served, and packed every weekend).

Initial climb up Mountain Trail to summit. Lots of ice so spikes are encouraged. From summit took Tote Road Loop blazed in white. Great for snowshoeing and x-country skiing.

Very icy during the wintertime, would recommend picks for your boots! Otherwise very pretty walk, great to bring dogs along.

Beautiful spot, got some professional pictures done here and they came out awesome. Many areas for different scenery. Short to moderate length walk with plenty to see! Beach, woods, rocks, abandoned house hundreds of years old.. love this place!

Neighbors appear to have prepared their own blazes, a Red and a Green trail adjacent to the Mayberry Hill Preserve on the Loon Echo Land Trust that this trail is located on. This can be confusing as I found myself on THEIR Red trail, as it is well trafficked and looked like the main loop trail, while snowshoeing and ended up making the loop exceptionally longer. They could've used a different color blaze to avoid confusion... Even so, it was a nice hike even with the addition for a seasoned hiker but would be more difficult for someone expecting a quick and short loop as it should be.

A nice 2 mile trail. Some incline makes for a nice workout early in the snowshoe season.

I've only been on a few hikes and this was my first time snowshoeing. It was pretty intense to me being a beginner with the recent snowfall, but the view at the top was definitely worth all the hard work.
