Who We Are

We are a community non-profit organization promoting year-round, outdoor recreational trail activities in the beautiful St. John Valley. Located close to downtown Fort Kent and Lonesome Pine Trails alpine ski area, you are minutes away from scenic vistas, friendly people, and good, clean, healthy FUN!

Our Mission

Our mission at the Fort Kent Outdoor Center is to promote healthy outdoor lifestyles by providing a first-rate facility, trail system, and recreational activities for members, athletes, and visitors. 

ESTABLISHED IN 1999

With primary funding from the Libra Foundation, the Outdoor Center was established in 1999 as a training center for aspiring Nordic and Biathlon athletes, and the host of multiple National and International Nordic and Biathlon events.

Diverse Trails For All Your Outdoor Needs

What began as solely a Nordic Ski facility has now evolved into a year round trail system with the addition of several miles of snowshoe, hiking and mountain bike trails. We are pleased members and visitors can now enjoy the beauty of the Maine outdoors all year long.

Lots of outdoor Fun

From climbing Mike's Mountain, single track biking on the Ridge Runner, skiing down Ben's Incline, snowshoeing the Warrior Trail, learning to shoot and ski, throwing a disc to a basket at the top of Lonesome Pine Trails, watch a toddler learn to ski with the Jalbert program, to a simple walk through the beautiful woods, there is truly something for everyone!

Support THe Fort Kent OUtdoor Center

With a huge boost from the Libra Foundation, the Fort Kent Outdoor Center was built primarily for training skiers for Biathlon and recreation. With many thanks to uncountable volunteer hours, sponsorships from local businesses, various donations large and small, and continued support from Pineland Farms we have introduced many other ways for people near and far to embrace the outdoors such as Disc Golf, single track biking, extended snowshoe trails, Nature Series events, Jalbert Ski Program expansion, and many other enhancements to our marvelous gem in the St. John Valley. We are thankful for all donations, large and small! They help us continue to serve as a recreation hub for the Greater Fort Kent Area.
