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.
The trail is really colorful, especially during the summer when flowers are blooming and the fall when the foliage is blazing. The only thing I would like to see be changed is adding more direction signs and perhaps installing interpretive signs (such as telling about the logging and paper making heritage, the flora and fauna and the history of Millinocket) on the trail.
My husband and myself saw this trail listed in the Rails to Trails magazine, and since we were in the area, we thought we would try it. From the very beginning, the trail was very bumpy, with lots of potholes and large rocks. We were hoping, that it would get better, but unfortunately it didn't. With the exception of a few sections where the trail was ok, this trail is clearly very frequented by many ATVs, and the condition of the trail is not suited for cyclists. We are both experienced riders, and made it to Dexter on the trail. From there we returned on busy Rt7 back to Newport. We just could not face the trail again for the return trip. Worst rail trail we've ever been on!!
My girlfriend and I. During the summer. Was staying at balsom woods camp ,so on the way back we saw. A ATV park. Passing. In Newport.so we stop to. Check it out. For a a ride. We liked what we saw. So we. Came back 10/15/16 we are amazed on the amount of. ATV etc on this trail and all the connection s the trail s have to offer. ,it is worth the trip. To visit these trail
Went to go on a nice day to the trail but the trail is closed until May 30th, 2016. FYI .
The trail is for the most part smooth and relaxing; It was like a ride in the park. Several of the barriers were tight for my small side by side(Rhino) and may not be passable for anything larger. I'm looking forward to riding this trail often.
My 24 year old daughter and I biked from Newport to Corinna today, a Friday. On the trail, we passed a dirt biker, two ATV's and three sets of people walking their dogs. Otherwise, we were just the two of us, and it was sunny and quiet. We loved riding by beautiful Lake Sebasticook with its lovely views and charming cottages. We enjoyed passing through farmland and seeing cows running in its pastures. We were surprised to see all the cattails and very tall reeds in the marshlands and loved the dark 'tunnels' through a path of deciduous forests. The trail is a bit bumpy in places, and a bit 'soupy' next to mile marker three (wish they'd pack that section down), but otherwise, it was just fine. Due to time constraints, we turned around in Corinna, after eating a delicious meal at Barb's Restaurant where all meals are home cooked and where you can have breakfast all day long! Next time, we plan to begin biking in Corinna and go to Dexter where we hope to eat another delicious lunch!
My wife and I were looking forward to a pleasant trail ride as described in the other reviews. We found anything but. The condition of the trail itself was very poor. We could not enjoy the nice scenery because we constantly had to be on the lookout for holes, large stones and sand patches. Equally bad was the fact that all the other riders that day were on ATVs which created a huge amount of dust and noise. To us it defeated the purpose of a recreational trail to share it with motorized vehicles. We decided we were not having any fun and turned back much sooner than we planned. We are not inexperienced riders and found this to be the least enjoyable ride we've been on in Maine.
