1. Gauge Road Trailhead (at the beginning of the Carriage Road near the Carrabassett Valley Town Office) is closed. The nearest trailhead is the Airport Trailhead; see all available trailheads.
2. Campbell Field Trailhead (on Rt 27) is open for parking, but the bridge across the Carrabassett River is out and the river is not crossable. All visitors are encouraged to access the Narrow Gauge Pathway via Stratton Brook/Rt 27 Trailhead just north of the Sugarloaf Access Rd.
All trails are open.
All huts are open.
1. Footbridge construction on the Falls Trail is almost complete, but currently isn’t passable with high water. To get to the Grand Falls vista please use south entrance of Falls Trail by the Tom and Kate Chappell Footbridge during high water.
2. Flagstaff to Grand Falls: the Maine Hut Trail north of Flagstaff Hut is wet with standing water due to beaver activity. Hikers can pass fine, but bikers need to travel south to the Flagstaff/LFD Rd Trailhead before heading north on Long Falls Dam Rd to circumnavigate. Return to the Maine Hut Trail at Gateway Drive. Look for the road sign and signs for dam access and boat launch.
1. Use caution on 12 ft wide ski bridges along the Maine Hut Trail. Stay to the I-beams, where the lengthwise runner boards are, not the center or edges. The trails team is working to replace the decking as finances allow. If you are interested in supporting the bridge decking replacement project, or any other Maine Huts & Trails improvements project, please become a member or donate!
2. The Shore Trail between Flagstaff Hut and the Trailhead has a section of erosion due to seasonal high water that has not been rerouted yet. Please use caution and follow blue diamond blazes to stay on the trail. Trail does not go through campsite, but continues along the eroded shore.
3. The Vista Point at Flagstaff Hut is eroding due to seasonal high water. For your own safety and to slow erosion, please avoid the edge of the point.
If you have specific questions or concerns about your safety on the trails, please call the Kingfield office at 207.265.2400 or contact us.
