Description

The trails meander through mixed-growth forest, sometimes over old potato fields, sometimes through cedar bogs, and always within close proximity to the abundant wildlife in the area. The terrain is mostly flat, but those looking for a challenge can try Rabbit Run, which follows a small ridge to the east of the McElwain Farm Loop. Snowshoe travel is welcome on most of the terrain, but please be careful to stay to the edge of groomed trails, and always stay off set tracks. Skiers are invited to ski anytime during the day and evening. The trails are open 24 hours a day, but lighting is not available. Head lamps are recommended for night skiing. The trails are closed for the off season.

As part of the Aroostook County Nordic Racing Circuit the Caribou Ski Trails are the site of the annual Henry Anderson Memorial Ski Day each February, the grand finale to Caribou's Annual Winter Carnival week. It combines an 8k race/tour with a fun event for kids.

No fee is required but donations are welcome.
