Mountain Biking Green Belt Trails (Sawyer Road)

****   Add a review
#28 of 119 mountain bike trails in Maine
#3,289 in the world

Trails are super rooty and very technical in most places. There is a well
marked small loop and a larger Intermediate Loop. Other than that there

numerous other trails in this system to get lost on. So if you stray away

the marked trails plan on getting lost.

    As a new to mountain biking rider, I agree this was a nightmare. Fell off my bike 3 times (once backward while trying to learn to climb a footy little hill), chain fell off twice getting onto bridges, nearly hit a tree. Nightmare. Should not be recommended to beginners!!!

    Lots of variety of trail conditions, rooty, rocky, bridges, fast&flowy, and some open fields trails. Lots of little networks of Trail Systems. Not very well linked together. Overall fun, not very technical, and not lots of vertical. Recommend going to http://www.capelandtrust.org/trails.html to link together trails for decent ride...Some of the better trails are in Winnick, CrossHill, DyerHutchinson areas off Sawyer Road. Easy to get lost so be familiar with roads & map of area.

    Awsome trail to ride after work in the weeee hours of the night or early am with the new snow or nightly frost still on the ground. Man made bridges get real slippery. There is one small loop thats an easy 25minutes while the other blue loop is longer and will get you lost. Marked pretty welll with greenbelt signs but no directions anywhere so very easy to get lost.
