Cross-country skiing has been part of Five Fields Farm for a decade.
Our apple operation is smaller now and we enjoy sharing our location
with others in the winter season. An elevation of 850 feet places us
on the right side of the "snow line". When it snows in the
foothills of the White Mountains, we usually have to shovel. Parking
is where we formerly loaded trucks of fruit. Prepare for your outing
or warm up in our winterized retail stand. We have rental equipment
in all sizes including snowshoes. The trail system starts on our back
lawn, and totals 27 K. Looping around the orchards, it connects with
the logging roads, and links with lands owned by abutters, including
the Loon Echo Land Trust on Bald Pate Mountain.
While groomed trails do not extend to the summit, snowshoe hikers and
more adventuresome skiers regularly make the 20 minute back-country
trek for a view to the horizon including numerous ponds, lakes, and
on clear days Mt. WashingtonTrails are largely one way, with bi-directional
skiing only where absolutely necessary. Guidance and terrain is available
to start the inexperienced, and the trail system is designed such that
new skiers will rapidly be able to access all portions.
Our family at Five Fields Farm looks forward to providing you
with the finest Maine apples and an enjoyable recreational experience.
