We will be continuing work on the Oak Knoll trail which when complete, will connect the town’s Narrow Gauge rail trail and the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center to Maine Huts & Trails Stratton Brook Hut. CR NEMBA, the Town of Carrabassett Valley and Maine Huts & Trails together are funding the construction of the remaining 2.5 +/- miles. This is the trail we broke ground on at last year’s event and we hope to complete it this building season. Maine Huts & Trails is committed to improving the mountain bike experience on their trail system. The Oak Knoll trail promises to be its crown jewel and a symbol of the partnership of the groups making it possible.
Maine Huts & Trails is offering a special rate to stay for one night (Sunday @ 25% discount) or two nights (Sun and Monday @ 50% discount) to NEMBA TrailFest participants who worked the Saturday and Sunday of the event.

A shout out and thank-you to the small but mighty trail crew that hauled wood and built a new fifty foot bridge at Newman Hill. Special thanks to Pat Audet and Jake at Maine Tree and Landscape for cedar donations to OLT, Walter Leavitt in Old Town who milled the trees, and Kris Sornberger for hauling and coordinating all this! And I guess a few people got stung by bees and kept working anyway, I feel your pain..... ...
i cleared brush out of a trail in the bog today... idk what the trail is called but its a loop a little ways up the train tracks and on the opposite side from stepdown. those trails have lots of branches in the way! ...
