Trace a line formed by Maine's State Routes 16, 27, 4, and 142 and you will encircle some of the state's highest mountains. In the southern part of the circle you'll find the long, impressive mass of Saddleback Mountain, from whose summit drop the twisty, wooded trails of Saddleback the ski resort.

Terrain
Saddleback has enjoyed a much-needed renaissance the past few years as new owners have breathed new life into it. Additional terrain, greatly expanded snowmaking, a new fixed-grip quad, and some intelligent real estate development have smoothed some of Saddleback's rough edges. Those who appreciate the mountain's genuine New England twists and turns needn't worry. The new terrain planned will retain the character of existing trails.
