As a local Freeport rider, I'm not as impressed with the Bradbury trails as a lot of other riders on this site. Sure, you can get a decent amount of riding in a small area. However, IMO many of the trails are becoming more and more eroded as the years pass, due to the large number of riders that use them. Granted, they are still easily rideable, but many of the roots have become very dug out making less and less flow each year.
In the Portland area, I much prefer the trails in the Falmouth area (Blackstrap, Falmouth Community Forest, Hadlock etc). If you know where you're going, Falmouth probably has 50 miles of singletrack that can be connected with minimal road riding. Plus there is some pretty significant climbing and descending. Extremely fun trails, and you hardly see anyone.
Not knocking Bradbury, because there is some good riding there, I just don't think it's the best the Portland area has to offer.
