Sunday River, long known as one of the preeminent ski resorts in the East, is a premier skiing destination that has steadily gained in popularity. Yet, with a trail network spanning 8 peaks, Sunday River maintains an open, spread-out feeling and never feels overcrowded. As far as skiing terrain, there is something or everyone with a variety of trails for each level of ability.
But Sunday River is not just a winter destination, golfers will be in awe of the new Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course at the Sunday River Golf Club. Panoramic mountain views from each of it's 18 holes and the way the course is naturally integrated into the landscape are just some of the reasons this course has won multiple awards - including one of the top 10 best new golf courses in the world by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

Great Brook Preserve...Hiker's paradise
A Wild Idea...
Another exciting feature of Great Brook Preserve is a new 180-mile hut and trails system through the mountains and lakes of western Maine that is slated to run adjacent to Great Brook Preserve. Funding for this endeavor was provided in part by native Maine corporations such as L.L. Bean and Tom's of Maine. The Western Mountains Foundation's trail/hut system will stretch from Newry to Moosehead Lake and will feature twelve remote log huts that are designed to reflect the tradition of Western Maine's sporting camps. The WMF trail system promises to be a great draw to the area and an excellent way to experience the immense natural beauty of the Western Maine Mountains. MAP
