Ski, bike and snowshoe rentals are available at Midcoast Conservancy’s Hidden Valley this winter! Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to try out Nordic Skiing, Fat Tire Biking, or Snowshoeing at Hidden Valley in Jefferson. Midcoast Conservancy will be offering affordable rentals and will have the sizes to outfit the whole family. Spending a few hours on Nordic skis or a Fat Bike at Hidden Valley is a great way to explore and enjoy the 25+ miles of groomed trails there. Renting gear is also a great way to try out a new sport before buying gear. This is the perfect way to break free of cabin fever and enjoy the abundance of Midcoast Maine’s outdoor wonders.

All participants are asked to stay masked during the rental transaction, and observe physical-distancing guidelines on the trails.
