Mount Blue State Park has that remote feel to it. Though about a two and one half-hour drive from Bangor and less than two hours from Portland, the 5,000-acre park is like a walk on the wild side. From winter headquarters on Center Hill Road, just the panorama of a shimmering Webb Lake below and the frosty Tumbledown Mountain Range (and more) in the distance is worth the drive. The park, which attracts some 60,000 visitors per year, has 14.0 miles of cross-country ski trails. This is also snowmobile country. Skiers and snowshoers have the option of using the snowmobile trails, too. Snowshoers are asked to stay off the ski trails. But, snowshoe-only trails may be cut in the future. Surface quality: Tracked after storms.
