Trail Description
About this trail
Few steep drops, rocks, roots, ledges... PLZ READ WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. There are a few ways to ride the trail. For starters you could take THE XC LOOP that runners from the school run on which takes you for a loop around the place. This loop is not single track it is about 6 ft wide and is relativity flat with few turns. There are lots of roots in the way but are marked with orange spray paint. There is one very steep part on this trail with a river at the bottom. Yes there is a bridge to go over but there is also a jump to gap the river. The OTHER MORE EXCITING SINGLE TRACK is a little hard to find but once your on it it will take you all through the woods and even under the bypass. DIRECTIONS TO SINGLE TRACK... As soon as you go through the stone blocs toy will ride down a small hill the single track is tucked into the bamboo on your left right before you cross the wooden plank. Hope you have fun.

Review: These trails are incredible! Frazier Preserve Trailhead is were you park (Access Rd. Gorham ME). Smooth, flowy, fun!

Review: It's been 4years since I last hit a trail and, after recently moving from RI to ME, this was the perfect trail to get back into it! A great variety of quick terrain and elevation changes provides a fun and productive workout. While my only complaint is the length, I supplemented it with some road miles in town.

Review: I just rode this and the backwoods bypass for the first time and really liked them. It seems like lots of people like trails with tons of rocks and roots because they are more technical. But I really appreciated the fact that this trails system had a lot of nice smoother single track where you could go a little faster and swoop around turns. Add a few tricky parts, some fast double track, and even 1 or 2 stunts and I would say that this is my new favorite spot in the area.
