Location: Waterville, Kennebec County
Description: The 200+ acre facility, owned by the City of Waterville, offers six miles of trails. QRRA has snowmaking capability and world-class groomed cross-country ski trails. Open to the public, no charge, donations accepted.
Activities: Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, walking/running, mountain biking
Favorite Season(s) to Visit: Winter
Why It’s Special: It’s just minutes from my front door! As soon as snow starts falling in Waterville, I immediately start thinking about the miles of groomed cross-country ski trails at Quarry Road. It’s a nordic skiers paradise, with groomed, wooded trails and a warming yurt.
Tips: I suggest parking in the lot closest to the warming yurt as it provides access to more of the trail network.
