Trail shared by Rik van Riel

This forest road is the bunny slope of backcountry skiing.

Rik van Riel
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Livermore Road and Livermore Trail are an old forest road, which went from the town of Waterville Valley to the now abandoned town of Livermore. This trail is popular with cross country skiers, and suitable for new backcountry skiers to get used to ungroomed terrain.

The first two miles are part of the Waterville Valley cross country ski area, but open for public access, and shared with hikers. The rest of the way is not groomed, and gets gradually less maintained.

Up to the northern junction with the Tripyramid Loop Trail, Livermore Trail still feels like a forest road. Soon after that, there are water crossings, which fill in to various degrees during winter. After the junction with the Old Skidder Trail, Livermore Trail narrows to the width of an overgrown hiking trail.

Ski down the same way you came up.
