Lots of bright yellow and gold foliage today on a wide flat trail. Some areas had washouts that were clearly marked. Overall it was a fantastic ride.
Straight through out-and-back bike path to and from the Orono campus and Old Town ME. One emergency call box was out of order the day we walked the bike path. Only a few bikers, others were walking/jogging or running. About 1/3 in shade. Walk right, ride left!
Rode my minibike the full length and back. Pretty area. I had a great time.
Rode this on a Friday with our gravel bikes; very few people; well-maintained with plenty of room for the ATVs we met to pass.
Has a nice River view, can occasionally hear trains tooting, people are dining to the side on restaurant patios
Nice River view, can occasionally hear trains tooting, restaurants with people dining can be seen to the side, fine for a City Walk
Last weekend we did this so-called shared trail (bikes, hikers, horses, 4 wheelers). Unless you like to inhale the whiff of gasoline from ATVs and the din of their engines, avoid this trail like the plague. We had the bad idea of ¿¿doing this trail back and forth...I believe we must have passed at least 60 ATVs. If some drivers showed civility, by slowing down when they passed us, the majority demonstrated that the words civility and courtesy are not even part of their vocabulary. They make it clear to you that you are not welcome on THEIR path. The majority pass by you without slowing down and I do not recommend this trail for families with young children for obvious reasons. In addition, it is a very rocky trail that requires at least a hybrid bike with good tires, or even a mountain bike.
I'm trying to find a positive to this trail but even trying to be objective I can't find one. There are no infractrustures (no picnic tables, no toilets, nothing). I imagine my review is going to be deleted as it probably won't appeal to everyone but until then hopefully it helps other people not to waste their time on this tasteless trail.
Rode this on September 1, 2021, from Newport, ME area. Rode 12 miles out on my gravel bike. This is a beginner friendly trail. Not road bike friendly. There are a few sections of loose gravel that can be challenging. Also some sandy spots, but you can power through them. Lots of pot holes and riding on the edges can be helpful.
This trail was soft and sandy, with many puddles (it rained the night before) and the mosquitoes were vicious as we were unloading our bikes. We rode only a short way before realizing it was too sandy to ride comfortably, and we decided to leave - a big disappointment! The trail seems to be dominated by ATVs - we saw four or five in the short time we were there. All in all, this doesn’t seem to be a good trail for biking!
I rode the trail Newport to Dover-Foxcroft and back on my Trek 29er. Trail conditions were rough in a few spots but all in all an enjoyable ride. Luckily there was light rain the night before or it would have been dusty especially when the few ATVs I met passed me. Everyone was friendly and considerate. The 29er was a good choice since the wider tires and relaxed frame worked well on the Sandy and bumpy sections. With a few short stops along the way and a light snack at the turn around point, it took me a little over 5 hours.
We ventured out for our first rail trial ride and found it easy to navigate as it is marked well. For the conditions, well, that goes with the territory and the sport. There’s going to be some good and bad be prepared to handle any terrain and then your all set after all this is called ATVing.
