Mountain Biking Breakneck Pond Trail
#25 of 93 mountain bike trails in Maine
#2871 in the world
Basically the only trail on the entire island of Mt. Desert that MTB'ing is allowed on. Can be either a shuttled scorching downhill, or an out and back climb and descent (start at Hull's Cove General Store for the out and back).
This descent will take you past Upper and Lower Breakneck ponds, it can be wet and may require a crossing or two of creeks.
You come out on a jeep trail, which then becomes Breakneck Rd. Follow the road down to Hull's Cove General Store for a tasty ice cold beverage!
