Mountain Biking Fore River Sanctuary

****   Add a review
#40 of 120 mountain bike trails in Maine
#4,888 in the world

The Fore River trail is butter smooth sand, wheel chair accessible. But the trail on the other side of congress (behind Maine Ortho) is mostly single track. A little climb, some fun stairs, and a very technical area with frequent mud and some interesting bridges.

Getting there
Your best bet is to park in downtown portland and ride along congress street. Ride into the parking lot at Maine Orthopedic Center and look for the trail to start on the right side about 1/2 way back into their lot.

    This is a fun trail system right in Portland. There is a mixture of easier double track and single track. Parts of the trails are smooth, but there are also parts with numerous roots. A number of short climbs and descents make riding here a good workout.

    One of the longest and most diverse rides in and around Portland. There's a lot of room to play and hone your skills here . From mud to roots & rocks, to narrow bridges a stairs.
