Libby Hill Forest Trails, Gray


  • Preserve Size: 145 acres?
  • Trail Mileage: ~9 miles in network
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy to moderate

Ski trails are green, snowshoeing trails are blue.

What an amazing place! Here you can x-c ski on about four miles of groomed trails, or go off snowshoeing on another four or so miles in what feels like fairly rugged wilderness. You can hike or walk here the rest of the year. All together, Libby Hill has roughly nine miles of trails. The creation of this center was an inspired community effort. You can read more about it on the Libby Hill website. The wooded trails are well-marked.

Dogs are not allowed on groomed trails in the winter.

Directions: Park on Libby Hill Rd., across from Gray-New Gloucester Middle School. A trail starts across the street from the parking lot. There is a snowmobile trail on the same side as the parking lot — don’t go down that! Unless you want to, but it’s not part of the Libby Hill trail network.
