Multi-use trail system on 145 acres of hilly land. 5 miles of wide trails for hiking, biking, xc skiing (groomed in winter). Plus 2.5 miles of narrow hiking, biking, snowshoeing trails.

Land has been uninhabited for more than 150 years, and has a wide variety of wildlife, including active beaver area.

Several geocaches located on the property, and horses and dogs are allowed (please clean up after your dog). There's also a permanent sport orienteering course with downloadable maps.

No fees, but donations are gratefully accepted - see www.LibbyHill.org for how to donate online. A portion of the land comprising the trail system has just been purchased, but with a mortgage, so fundraising is now very important. An "Iron Ranger" will be installed summer 2008 near the parking kiosk for cash/check donations.

WEBSITE - see www.LibbyHill.org for photos, maps (several types), event news, etc.

Directions:

Approx 5 minutes from I-95 Turnpike Exit 63. At exit, turn LEFT to follow Route 26-A bypass, then RIGHT on 26-A at next light. Once past Jct with original Route 26, Libby Hill Rd is 2nd LEFT (sign for Gray-New Gloucester schools). If you get to a blinking yellow light, you missed it.
