Burnham Hill Loop

Burnham Hill Loop Professional Review and Guide

"As snowmobling grew in the area, skiers began looking for their own trails to ski. In 1989, a group of skiers made a small out-and-back trail on land off Route 16. From there, they approached the town about using some property near the town’s transfer station. They groomed a small 1.0-mile loop that came to be known as the Two Moose Trail, just because someone saw a couple of moose out there one time.

Serendipity also played a role in the system’s development. When the town started to develop Chick Hill for a sewer treatment plant, an area that has wide panoramic views of Saddleback and the Bigelows, the network expanded to that land as well. At one time, the warming hut on Rangeley Municipal Trails was on the verge of collapse. A group of local skiers pooled their resources and rebuilt the hut, which now has a woodstove, couch, and chairs. Surface quality: Tracked, skate-groomed."
