Fred says it best:  “Trails are one of the easiest way to improve your community’s recreational opportunities!”  

Western Maine is well known as a scenic natural treasure with mountains, forests, lakes and rivers that attract outdoor and recreational enthusiasts who like to hike, bike, run and ski.  Most of these activities and others, such as ATVing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing, involve trails. 

Fred Bailey, a native and resident of Andover, designs trails when he isn’t competing professionally in Nordic skiing races and working as an archival assistant at the Maine Mineral and Gem Museum in Bethel. He has designed snowshoe trails and a variety of skiing trails as well as multi-purpose trails in Maine for the Nordic Heritage Center, Black Mountain of Maine, the 10th Mountain Center, Hampden Academy, and private landowners as well as out of state in Montana, for example. FredBaileyTrailDesign will conduct feasibility studies, develop trail plans, and provide consulting and construction oversight, and map production.
