THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON :)

4 -25-17: Welcome spring! There is still snow up heeyah, and we would like to remind skiers/ hikers/ snowshoers/ bikers/ runners to use caution and common sense on the trail system at this time. As the snow melts and the frost recedes, trail surfaces can give way to boots and tires creating holes and erosion issues.

Trail maps can be found at the Chamber of Commerce and the yurt kiosk. Happy Trails!

The fat bikes have landed! AJs Fat Bikes, located in downtown Rangeley, has bikes for rent and sale. We welcome fat tire bikes year-round on our extensive network of trails.


All rental equipment is now on sale! Adult package (Fischer skis, boots, poles) $100, kids package $75, snowshoes $50 a pair. To set up an appointment, email us at rlxcski@gmail.com.


A huge thanks to all of our volunteers who helped make the 22nd annual Loppet a great success. You rock! We couldn't do it without you!

Another mention online! Flipkey writes that the Trails Center is a must visit in Rangeley :)



Rumor has it that the gnomes are traveling from far and wide to build their 'tiny houses' at the Trails Center! New homes have sprung up on Geneva and off the Lake Trail near Saddleback Lake! A big thank you to the RLRS Outing Club, who have assisted these little creatures as they move in. Pick up a Gnome Roam map at the yurt and head out on a search for these special creatures- each gnome was handcrafted by local students and artists at the Rangeley Lakes Regional School.


Season passes are available at the yurt or via form mail in  -  get yours today!
