Put cross-country skiing and snowmobiling together and what have you got? An oxymoron. At least that may be the view of some, but at the Northern Timber Cruisers Clubhouse in Millinocket, 11.0 miles of narrow, groomed ski trails make it so that both can coexist on a small swath of Bowater-Great Northern Paper’s holdings in Maine. Located less than 2 miles from downtown Millinocket and just on the outskirts of Baxter State Park, the trails are part of a working forest. Skiers will see signs of loggers’ harvests and no doubt will hear the occasional logging truck off in the distance. Then again, the system, like the Bait Hole network also overseen by the cross-country skiing members of the Northern Timber Cruisers, is no-frills and free. Surface quality: Groomed for classical.
