Trails are open to snowshoeing if they are open for skiing. Fat biking is condition dependent, please contact us to verify that trails are open for fat biking on the day you plan to ride. Dogs or other pets are not allowed on our ski trails. Thank you for leaving your pets at home.
Our official trail report is for cross country ski conditions thanks to TrailHUB! A quick glance below shows you what trails are open (green) or closed (red). You can also follow the TrailHub website instructions to use the GPS map of our trails so you can know exactly where you are when skiing! Or download the trail map to your phone. Trail descriptions are listed below the snow report.

Click the link to view our Trail_Map. The Strafford Nordic Center trail system winds through the fields, pastures and riding areas of two working farms. The trails loop through flat hay fields, gentle rolling pastures and up hearty climbs to 360-degree views. We have re-named and added some trails due to our temporary location this year, so the descriptions below don’t match the map exactly.
