Mountain Update

 

IMPORTANT HIKER NOTICE! (August 11, 2022) - Due to lift construction and preparation for the new Sandy Quad, crews are asking hikers to please avoid the Wheeler Slope Trail. Hikers may start at and proceed up Green Weaver all the way, or take Green Weaver to The Pass to connect to Grey Ghost. While on the mountain, please make yourself aware of construction vehicles and machinery and avoid them when safe. This will remain in effect until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation!

 

The mountain bike trails are now open!! At this time, it's pedal power only but stay tuned for updates regarding lift-serviced riding coming soon! The team has been crazy busy touching up the trails to ensure they are in tip-top shape for you. To see what the crew has been up to or to learn more about our mountain bike trails, click here. We also have a full bike shop that offers bike rentals, repairs, service, tuning, and riding accessories. For questions, you can contact the bike shop at ADVENTURES@SADDLEBACKMAINE.COM or call 207-864-5671 ex. 165. The gear heads are positive they have everything you need for a good ride!

 

Weekly Trail Update

 

With the cool front moving in, temps will be cooling and giving a false sense that summer might be coming to an end. Thankfully, the calendar still says August so we won’t be out of the heat just yet. Take advantage of these cool temps while they last by hiking the mountain or getting out on our new mountain biking trails. All 6 trails are open for your riding enjoyment. Make sure to save the trail map to your phone so you’ll have it when you need it. You can view the trail map along with other information regarding mountain biking here. When planning your visit to the mountain, it's always a good idea to look at our on-mountain webcams along with the weather forecast for that day as the weather can change on a dime up at 4,000 feet. As a good rule of thumb, pack a change of clothes so you're ready if the weather decides to change on you.

 

If you're hiking the mountain, remember to keep our sensitive high alpine vegetation in mind. When hiking to the summit (above the Kennebago Quad or Ski Patrol Shack) make sure you stay on the trail and walk only on durable surfaces such as rock or dirt. Read all about how you can protect our special summit environment here.
