AUGUSTA – If you’ve ever wanted to try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing but never had the chance, you are in luck if you live within a reasonable distance of Sebago Lake State Park.
The Ski and Snowshoe Trailer, run by the Maine Division of Parks and Public Lands, will be at the park January 17-22, providing free use of skis, snowshoes and all the accessories.
“Sebago Lake offers great cross-country conditions, with several miles of groomed trails and views of the Songo River and the lake,” said Gary Best, assistant southern region manager in Parks and Public Lands. “This is the second year for the Ski and Snowshoe Trailer, and it’s been a very popular program. We’ll be taking the trailer to state parks all over the state this winter.”
The trailer and its contents were provided by a grant from the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund, along with sponsorships by L.L. Bean, Wicked Joe Coffee and Healthy Hometowns, a program of the Maine Winter Sports Center. The trailer has 66 pairs of cross-country skis, boots, bindings and poles, and 44 pairs of snowshoes. When the trailer is at a state park during scheduled hours the equipment is free for use.
During the trailer’s six-day stop at Sebago Lake State Park, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The park is located off Route 302 in Casco. For more information, call the park office at (207) 693-6231, or contact the department at www.maine.gov/acf/.
The Division of Parks and Public Lands is part of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.
