New Sweden Community Cross Country Ski Trails
The trail starts at the end of the New Sweden Consolidated School parking lot between the school building and the garage. The trail can also be accessed from the school playground, east of the school building. To get to the school, turn on to Westmanland Road from ME-161 (New Sweden Road) for approximately a mile and the school is on the right.
Weekend parking is in the loop in front of the school or in the school parking lot.
The 2 km woods loop is set for classic skiing, whose woods section is a combination of flat, rolling slopes followed by hill climbs and downhills. Another 1 km loop in the field south of the school building is set with a classic and freestyle track. All the trails are groomed daily for use.
In the non-winter seasons, the trail network is also enjoyed by hikers and mountain bikers.
Pets under control are allowed with the expectation that any droppings be collected and transported out.
