There are also about 10 miles of trails in East Millinocket and Medway, which are groomed and maintained by East Branch SnoRovers Club volunteers. The trails here are usually groomed after each major storm. The trails originate at the SnoRover's Clubhouse on the Hathaway Farm Road in Medway 4 miles west of I-95 on the East Branch of the Penobscot River. Take Exit 244 off I-95, go west or left on Rt 157/11, then right on Wilderness Drive, then right on Hathaway Road. Parking is available at the clubhouse. East Millinocket residents also access the trails from the sports fields north of Schenck High School.
This trail starts at the East Branch Sno Rovers Clubhouse and generally follows the course of the East Branch of the Penobscot River. Starting from the Clubhouse, the trail goes northwest, through dense softwood stands up and down small hills and out into open hardwood stands. After roughly 2 miles, skiers may go right (north) or left (west).
The left or westward trail leads to the high school and is about 3 miles long from the clubhouse. The right or northward trail either goes to a short loop and then back (about 3 miles total) or continues north, then west and then south for a longer trip about 5.5 miles long to the high school fields. ... Or before reaching the high school, skiers may loop back to the clubhouse for a round trip over 6 miles.
There is no fee charged for these trails, but donations are welcome to assist with maintenance costs and may be made to: East Branch SnoRovers Club, P.O. Box 397, East Millinocket, ME 04430 with a notation, "Ski Trails".
