Mountain Biking River Trail

****   Add a review
#14 of 119 mountain bike trails in Maine
#2,177 in the world

Intermediate / Advanced

Fast single track with a few short (bike length) bridges. Trail sees many riders coming in both directions so be aware and move to the side for advanced bikers. This will take you to Hannaford's in Falmouth.

    This is fun singletrack that swoops and dips along the Presumpscot River. If you're looking for a trail with fewer rocks and roots than many of the trails in the area, this is a good bet.

    Yea man this was one of the first trails I ever did its not that bad, it's very fun trail with some cool things along the way but I would have to say welcome all bikers who have done some single track before, hardly ever see advanced riders when Im on this trail

    Start the ride at Summit St and it is an easy warm-up to the river but watch for pedestrians. Once you hit the river and go left it gets a little more technical with some good loops(some tough climbs). At rt 100 cross the river and it gets a whole lot more technical with stunts and bridges(if they have not been washed out by the rain). When you make it to rt 302 and cross the river again it gets even more difficult with some insane stunts, the trail also gets very overgrown and difficult to ride.

    But you should definetly not ride the road back to Summit St the trails are great the other direction too.

    This trail was a blast! Had lots of fun but honestly think dark prince doesn't know what he is talking about. This is an intermediate trail not some crazy trail that no one can go on.......
