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 km (6 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
So far we haven't gotten the cold snap needed to make enough snow for skiing. With more warmth and rain in the forecast this week, we're going to have to push opening back a few days.
The good news is that colder weather is forecast to settle in next week. We're planning to fire up the snowmaking system as conditions allow, probably the later part of the weekend and into the week. A couple productive nights will hopefully allow us to open at some point midweek (December 5-9). Stay tuned here and on Facebook for the latest.
As a reminder: it is still hunting season, and some of our trails are in Fairfield, where hunting is allowed. Please wear orange and use caution, especially if venturing onto North Koons or other trails in that area. All trails are open for hiking and biking. Get out and enjoy these last fall days.
See you on the trails!
