Mountain Bike Program:

The Nordic Heritage Sport Club in Presque Isle encourages the public to grab a mountain bike and come out to Nordic for a ride. Bring your friends and join our group mountain bike program. The group meets at 6 p.m. every Monday at the Nordic Welcome Center and Wednesday at Tom’s Trail trailhead at the facility entrance – weather permitting. Don’t forget to bring a light for your bike so you can find your way on the trails! Don’t have a mountain bike? No worries, we have a small fleet of bikes on hand, but sizes are limited. For more information contact Tom Chasse: 207-551-8956 or

Youth Ski Program:

This program is made possible by our very generous sponsor: Northern Light A.R. Gould Hospital. Without their support we cannot provide the public with this wonderful program. 

Come join our program leaders, Heidi and Kyle Bartley, along with his volunteer ski helpers each Saturday beginning Jan 25 from 10-12 p.m. and continuing until March 7. It is for children up to 14 years of age, although parents of children 6 and under are asked to accompany their child.  The program is non-competitive and focused on improving basic cross country skiing skills through instruction, games, and skiing journeys on the many trails near the lodge. Canadians are welcome! Hot chocolate and granola bars are served at the end of each session. There is no cost to participants, but we do encourage families to become members of the club. Rentals are available for $7 at the Welcome Center if equipment is needed. There is no need to pre-register, a simple liability form will need to be completed at the start of the first session.  For more information please contact

Work Bee Volunteer Program:

 It takes a lot of hardworking volunteers to make the Nordic Heritage Center the best recreation center in The County. Join our volunteer Work Bee program and help us stay great! You can lend a hand cutting brush, clearing trails or doing other maintenance tasks. It's a great way to get outdoors and have some fun. We can use your help for however long you can join us. Report to the Welcome Center and we'll give you a job. If you've got tools, please bring them. Otherwise, we'll provide them. We will gather, rain or shine. For more information, please contact Tom Chasse: Like our Facebook page to hear when our next weekend Work Bee will happen.
