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.
Located just 2 miles from downtown Waterville, Quarry Road’s trails and open spaces provide outstanding opportunities for a variety of activities including:
The area offers 10 km (6 miles) of world-class groomed cross-country 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
The dry winter and early spring have allowed the trails to dry out in record time. All trails are currently dry, firm, and open for walking, running, and biking.
The Davis Bridge (center access to the far meadow) suffered some undermining during spring runoff, and has partially collapsed. This short section of trail will be closed until further notice. There are also a few washed-out culverts in other areas; keep an eye out for holes in the trail.
The weekly Quarry Road Summer Race Series will be ongoing throughout the summer, with races (and kids' fun runs) most Tuesday evenings through mid-August. Check the calendar for details and other upcoming activities and events.
See you on the trails!
