Hiking at Ragged Mountain Recreation Area
There are many miles of public hiking and mountain biking trails that can be accessed from the base of the Snow Bowl, dawn to dusk. Most of the trails are multi-use. The Red Diamond trail (see the map below) is open for hiking in the summer and fall.
The Hosmer Brook Trail is for hiking only. Hosmer Brook Trail does not loop, so plan to turn back once you reach the end. The trail begins to the right (west/southwest) of the base of the triple chairlift and the stone wall where the bike trail turns left, about 3/10s of a mile from the parking lot. Travel up along the farthest tree line and then enter the woods at the sign.
The Kuller Trail trailhead is at the pond end of the main parking lot, left (east/ocean side) of the double chairlift. Look for the wide dirt path (vehicles not allowed) and follow the signs. Kuller Trail loops and is multi-use, so expect to see mountain bikers and use caution. You can connect to the Red Diamond hiking trail to the summit as the trail juts out onto Lookout ski trail – look for the red blaze. There is also a set of kiosks with information and maps available near the boat launch, just before entering the main parking lot.
If you need further information or suggestions about the hiking trails, including maps, call the Camden Parks and Recreation Office at 207-236-3438 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that during the winter ski season, from Dec. 1 through March 31, there are different policies in effect for trail use and dog visitations at the Ragged Mountain Recreation Area. All dogs must be on a leash, per town ordinance, or under voice control at all times on Ragged Mountain trails.
