Comments
Comments: This 3.1 mile loop is a great local trail in Bethel. It is popular on the weekends so arrive early or late as the lot tends to fill up on nice days. Apparently the trail must be advertised by Sunday River Ski Resort or the tourist office. I always see so many Massachusetts plates... But that’s cool ‘cause this is a sweet little trail in western Maine.

Blue blazes are frequent with correct double blazing for turns. It is almost always broken out after storms. Only once have I needed snowshoes after a big snow. We bare-booted the entire thing without postholing. There are no hard and fast rules about postholing on this trail. You will find a mix of smooth trail and chewed up trail. But it doesn’t matter. It is a local trail and all types are welcome, just be friendly.

Cheers!
