Mountain Biking Summerhaven

*****   Add a review
#17 of 92 mountain bike trails in Maine
#2416 in the world

If staying on the trail, one can't get lost, it loops all around for a total of 8
miles. Be cautious, it is a shared trail with atv's & horses. This trail isn't
technical by any means, however a great cardio work out & great trail for beginners. There are some great hill climbs 98% of the trails are double
tracks & some sand & mud. There is a State Preserve, Tyler Pond that you
can ride down to & take a dip in. A good ride will take about 2 hours.

    This was my first actual trail ride. It was very fun. Their was some flowing downhill it was mostly double track with single track connectors. One of the trails bring you to a private sand pit, Being family of the owners of the sand pit i would suggest not going in there, although there is a public sand pit. Another trail leads to Tyler pond, don't be alarmed by gun shots there are two gun ranges within two miles of the trails. there are a couple of road crossings so beware of dump trucks on the road. In conclusion The trails are a blast for beginners.

    The trails here are not very technical, but they are a blast to ride. The network is mostly made up of ATV & snowmobile trails, with some single track connectors in between the major trails. I had a ton of fun out here, as the doubletracks aren't groomed to be flat easy trails, but are made for ATV's to have some fun. This means there are large berms with turns and you can have some fun on your MTB as the trails allow you to build up some speed to hit those berms. You'll pass through some super large sand playgrounds for ATVs where you can try to slog it, but the sand is deep. Also, there are a lot of trail connectors off of these areas, so don't be afraid to cross one to the other side. Don't let the occasional sound of gunshots scare you, as you will pass by a shooting range on your ride.
