Mountain Biking Mt Agamenticus

****   Add a review
#6 of 93 mountain bike trails in Maine
#1183 in the world

Here's a link to the trail map: http://parksandrec.yorkmaine.org/trail%20map%201.pdf

There are a few trailheads from which to enter the network, but if you park at the bottom of the hill that leads up to the mountain summit, there's easy access to the Ring Trail. I rode this trail a lot a few years ago, and depending on the season, it can be very technical at times, especially on some of the downhills (see HORSE TRAIL.) Though not in the listed trail map, there are some trails to the south of the mountain that are very technical, and make for an aggressive, experienced ride. Overall, the trails are well-maintained, but be prepared for some leg burn going up and down the three "summits" of Mt. Aggie. Can't believe I'm the first to write a review on it!!! Wish I had pictures...I'll get some next time I'm up in the New England area.

    I have ridden most of the trails in this network over the last few months. I love to ride hear but my butt does not. The trails are all very rocky and most of them are impassibly steep(on the way up :D ). Lots of good technical riding though. Just be prepared for pain during the ride.

    Seemingly endless. Winding, curving trails and something for all ability levels.

    I'm a huge fan of technical riding. This is THE PLACE for leg burning climbs, technical descents, and epic scenery. For a full 17-20 mile ride, peak the three hills then cross to the south side of Mountain Rd to the Watershed side. Hit the trail that follows the east side of Folly pond for a KILLER technical ride.

    But, for a lighter ride, you can still enjoy the scenery at the top of Mt A. There's an access road allowing you to drive to the top. They have a multi-use (handicap accessible) trail that's maybe a 3/4 mile long. So its kid friendly if you drive to the top and stay in the vicinity.

    Was here for the week and looking for a quick morning ride. Great place for more experienced riders. Trails are very rocky, and limit your speed a lot. I do prefer fast flowy trails, but I still enjoyed it here a lot. I'd recommend driving up to the top ad grabbing a paper trail map. There are a lot more trails to chose from than what the singletracks map says there are. Also great veiws and picnic area at the summit.

    Mount A is a great place for a short hike, but a terrible place for a mountain bike ride. When I say this I am talking about the main mountain, the Ring Trail and all of it's associated trails to and around the main summit. They are very rocky and technical and not my definition of fun for mountain biking (I am a fan of the fast and flowy and Mount A is not that.) If you like really rocky riding, then you will like the ring, but I think it should be left for the hikers.

    However, if you access the trails from the back or side and ride onto the 2nd and third hills, the experience is different. There is still some technical riding, but the trails have much more flow, with some good and challenging climbing. Follow the road past the main lot and the summit road, around the back of the mountain and park in the small lot near the bottom of the old ski hill. Ride in on the ATV road and access the 2nd hill trails from there.

    Good place to ride if your in the area. Very easy to put together a decent fairly technical ride. Lots of rocks/roots and great climbs.

    Very fun I did the ring trail and had a blast lots of rock gardens and lots of little water bars that are fun to bunny hop off of

    A ton of rocks and big roots. Tough at time with long climbs and sone decent DH. No good drop offs though. Overall was fun... Look for Cedar and Porccupine trails

    The trail heads indicate there are no "easy trails" at Aggie. This is a steep single track Mtn with lots of varying trails. from wide open Granite faces to singltrack just narrow enough for your bike. Te bottom is flatter but wetter and still lots of fun. People get hurt, badly, every year so respect the area and don't underestimate the Rocks
