New Sweden Community Cross Country Ski Trails


The trail starts at the end of the New Sweden Consolidated School parking lot between the school building and the garage. The trail can also be accessed from the school playground, east of the school building. To get to the school, turn on to Westmanland Road from New Sweden Road (Route 161) for approximately a mile and the school is on the right.


The 2 km woods loop is set for classic. The woods section is a combination of flat, rolling ski followed by hill climbs and down hills. Another 1 km loop in the field south of the school building is set with a classic and freestyle track. All the trails are groomed daily for use.

Weekend parking in the loop in front of the school or the school parking lot. Pets under control are allowed with the expectation that any droppings be collected and transported out. New Sweden is the center of the Swedish culture in Northern Maine, complete with a Swedish store and museum and one of the nicest amphitheaters around.
