The Camden Snow Bowl is a community owned ski and recreation area. From the summit of 1300' Ragged Mountain, skiers and riders have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to alpine skiing and snowboarding, there are many other winter activities available at the Snow Bowl. A snow tubing slope provides fun for all family members, ice skating on Hosmer pond and a thrilling 400' toboggan chute.

The Georges Highland Path (GHP) is a 50-mile network of low-impact footpaths in the midcoast region built and maintained by the Land Trust. This unique trail system is based on the participation of private landowners who graciously give permission for the public to cross their land. When hiking these trails, please respect the fact that you are on privately owned land. For trail information and other valuable resources, visit georgesriver.org/trials.
