Maine's Northwestern Mountains

We are home to 10 of Maine's 4,000 ft. Mountains including Bigelow, Saddleback, and Sugarloaf. Join us in Maine's Northwestern Mountains Region along the Appalachian Trail or the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail - our region is the only location where two major recreational trails meet in North America.

Featured Activities

Fat Tire Biking
Fat tire bikes are a great way to access the scenic terrain of western Maine’s foothills. Fat biking is a popular way to spend a winter day when it’s cold and windy as you are protected in the woods; it’s also best on a hard-packed trail. Maine Huts & Trails allows fat bikes on their entire trail system, and it’s a great way to get to one of their four off-the-grid lodges. The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center also allows fat bikes on their Nordic ski and snowshoe trails but check with the Center for times that they allow the bikes on the trails.

Burnt Mountain Cat Skiing
Burnt Mountain Cat Skiing is the new winter experience at Sugarloaf, and it is the first true cat skiing operation in New England. The terrain on Burnt Mountain and in Brackett Basin® is aptly described as “side-country”; it offers skiers and riders varied terrain from tight tree skiing to wide-open glades. For years, Burnt Mountain was only accessible to those willing to hike or to ski in. Now you can save your energy and expend it on a short climb, and then a drop into 100+acres of powder on the eastern boundary of Burnt.

X-Country Skiing
The rolling foothills of western Maine are ideal for cross-country skiing. There is a vast network of trails groomed for skate skiing and classic skiing and even access to backcountry terrain.
