Quarry Road is a year-round outdoor recreation destination for people of all ages, abilities and walks of life from the greater Waterville area, across Maine and beyond.
The area offers 10.4 km (6.5 miles) of world-class groomed Nordic ski trails, and additional miles of backcountry snowshoe and hiking trails. Our state-of-the-art snowmaking system ensures an early start to the ski season and reliable snow conditions all winter.
Quarry Road Recreation Area is owned and operated by the City of Waterville Department of Parks & Recreation.
Friends of Quarry Road, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, works collaboratively with the City to provide guidance, raise capital, and assist in operations, upkeep, and oversight. Please join us.
Current Trail Conditions
Temperatures are dropping, and winter is on its way. Crews are hard at work finishing up projects for the upcoming winter season -- including almost 2km of new groomed nordic terrain, a new multiuse/dog trail, and enhancements to the North and South Koons ski trails. Check out the new winter trail map for all the details.
Ski trail season passes are on sale now. Order before December 1 to take advantage of early-bird pricing. Click here to buy online, or stop into Waterville City Hall or the Alfond Youth Center to make your preseason purchase in person.
Remember that hunting season is in full swing. While there is no hunting within City limits, a portion of the Quarry Road property does extend into Fairfield, where hunting is allowed. This includes the areas around North Koons and Wally's Way, and South Koons north of Cal's Climb. Please be safe and wear orange during hunting season.
