Caribou Country Club Trails

Trailhead

The trails are located behind the Caribou Country Club off Rt 161 approximately 3 miles north of Caribou. From the Club, continue on Phil Brown Way up to the trail head. Blue ski sign marks the entrance.

Description

The trails meander through mixed-growth forest, sometimes over old potato fields, sometimes through cedar bogs, and always within close proximity to the abundant wildlife in the area. The terrain is mostly flat, but those looking for a challenge can try Rabbit Run, which follows a small ridge to the east of the McElwain Farm Loop. Snowshoe travel is welcome on most of the terrain, but please be careful to stay to the edge of groomed trails, and always stay off set tracks. Skiers are invited to ski anytime during the day and evening. The trails are open 24 hours a day but lighting is not available. Head lamps are recommended for night skiing. The trails are closed for season.

As part of the Aroostook County Nordic Racing Circuit the Caribou Ski Trails are the site of the annual Henry Anderson Memorial Ski Day each February, the grand finale to Caribou's Annual Winter Carnival week. It combines an 8k race/tour with a fun event for kids. A variety of dining opportunities are available within the greater Caribou area. Whether your culinary choice is standard fast food fare or relaxing sit down dining, you will find everything from homemade goodies to award winning recipes. Both Caribou and neighboring Presque Isle provide night time activities for visitors of all ages. Movies, shopping, dancing or comedy you will find something to do.  No fee is required but a $2 donation is welcome.
