Mountain Biking Philbrick Trail

****   Add a review
#46 of 92 mountain bike trails in Maine
#5046 in the world

If you are in the Skowhegan Area this a great spot to get some exercise on your bike. Nice loop with both uphill and downhill sections. Some of the climbs are pretty steep with soft sand and rocks adding to the challenge. Don't miss the small bike park built by the town along the paved section of the River Walk.

Turn left following US Route 201 south; after about 0.1 miles, turn left onto the first street (Cedar Street) and go to the end. Turn right onto Mount Pleasant Avenue all the way to the end. Turn left onto Joyce Street and park on the shoulder out of the way of truck traffic. Ride along the side of the fence by the treatment plant to enter the trails.

    The trails are nice sometimes can be hard to follow because they aren't maintained as well as they could be. They have severel good trails... One leads to a little waterfall another one leads to a boat launch on sand like a beachey area that's a little down hill then there are two down hill descents they get you a lot of speed and are fun.... The trail was a bit muddy on 4-15-13

    Good spot to ride. Some of the uphill sections are quite challenging although there is nothing to intense. This is a quiet spot to ride with nice views of the river and proximity to a small bike park built by the town.
