AMC 100 Mile Wilderness Trails in Moosehead Lake Region

Postby tomcat » Sat Feb 23, 2013 9:25 am

I'm not sure how the XC has been elsewhere in NE but the AMC has been awesome this year. I live only a little over an hour away and have been there 4 times this year. The trails are groomed, but not like a nordic area. They are not tracked and although skating is possible, the trails seem a little narrow to skate efficiently. The system is based around huts, similar to AMC huts in Whites that most people ski into. I never stayed there and use the trails as day trips.
Despite heavy rain, even in Greenville, Tuesday night, the AMC trails seemed to get a fair amount of snow making conditions wonderful. I did a 22 mile loop making stops at both huts. Most trails were freshly touched up with the groomer and skiing was best of the year.

I would love to get up there or to the Maine huts trail - maybe next winter - just a little far to trek w/kids from here in central Mass. I little bike riding in the area may be in the works for this summer though.
