Kennebec Valley Trail

Good news bad news.

June, 2024 by doyle_philip

Ok, so having ridden the length from Sunset Cemetery north to 201 in Bingham here are my recommendations. The path from the Cemetery to Tavern Road you can probably skip. It's considerably rougher and doesn't offer much in the way of views. I would suggest parking at the Jotham and Emma bridge that separates Solon and Embden and picking up the trail via Tavern Road. However there is still a land dispute going on so the trail ends abruptly with fencing and "NO ATVS" signs posted. Now to be clear there are no "No Trespassing" signs, just the ones about ATV's. I asked some locals at 201 motor sports (after leaving the trail where indicated and biking into town via the road) and they didn't seem to think it would be an issue. That being said if you stay on the trail, be prepared to work around construction fencing, game cams and caution tape. I did notice that my bicycle tracks weren't the only ones. This route gives you about 16 miles round and overs a pretty good trail and beautiful views. This is not a cruiser style or road bike route. Some spots are smoother than others- best with a hybrid or mountain bike. Also go mid week and preferably after a recent rain. There will be less dust and less ATV's out and about. Regarding the drivers of said ATV's I found most (and there weren't many) to be polite, cautious, and gave me lots of space. Some however seemed annoyed I was out there. Just like anywhere I suppose.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Suitable Only For ATV's

June, 2024 by stevenatha53

I've never been more disappointed in a rail trail than the portion of the Down East Sunrise Trail we rode in Machias. It may be maintained, but it's maintained only for ATV's not for cyclist except mountain bikers and even then the large gravel present would make for a miserable ride. Just don't.

Acadia National Park Carriage Roads

A Superb Gravel-grinding Adventure

April, 2024 by luv2bike23

The carriage roads of Acadia National Park are among the most beautiful and rewarding places I've ridden. They are unique and unlike a typical rail-trail, but if they were, they would undoubtedly be in the Hall of Fame. The riding on the carriage roads is comparable to the Virginia Creeper Trail, with some climbing and numerous great views, but the carriage roads are generally wider and more engineered. They offer a fantastic range of scenery, including dense forests, lakes, stream crossings over historic stone bridges and spectacular views of the coastal mountains, bays, ocean and inland Maine. With forty-five miles open to bicycles, one can plan a variety of rides from relatively flat and easy circuits around the lakes and ponds to more extended climbing in the mountains. The grade is typically gentle and the National Park Service does a wonderful job of keeping the carriage roads groomed and free of obstacles. Being the only national park in the region, Acadia can be very crowded during the summer and the carriage roads are often congested. Cyclists need to be very careful around horses in particular. The more challenging and remote sections of the carriage roads are typically less crowded, so those are better choices during the summer. Late October to early November is the best time for cycling as the crowds, heat and humidity give way to crisp cool days without insect pests. The carriage roads can easily be ridden with almost any kind of bike except road bikes, but most riders would probably do best with a dedicated gravel bike, fat bike, hybrid or hardtail mountain bike. E-bikes are a common sight and can be rented in Bar Harbor. Suspension is mostly unnecessary but good tires are a must. Surface conditions can range from hardpack to fairly deep gravel, so wider tires with some teeth are helpful. Good brakes are also highly recommended. The carriage roads provide a fantastic cycling experience but they do require hundreds of hours of upkeep so please be sure to purchase a park pass. As a capstone to a stupendous carriage road adventure, Bar Harbor has plenty of restaurants where one can enjoy a traditional Maine post-ride pigout of chowdah, lobstah and beeah. Enjoy!

Down East Sunrise Trail

Unfortunately not for biking, which is most ecologically sound, preserves the peaceful atmosphere, and provides healthy exercise

February, 2024 by debra.nygaard

Trail was ruined by loose stones, ruts, etc. cause primarily by ATV's and generally not rideable, even for wide tires used by a very experienced rider. Other reviews say the same thing. I don't understand why the powers that be allow ATV's on this "trail." Certainly there is support for a more sensible and appropriate use of the trail as well as lots of other places in Maine where you can ride your ATV. With all the need these days for clean air, energy conservation, healthy exercise for our population, preserving animal habitats, etc., why in the world would this continue to be supported along the entire trail no less!

Kennebec Valley Trail

This is not a bike trail, this is a atv trail, the people drive the side by sides like they are out of cigarettes on the trails up here.

Down East Sunrise Trail

Ski the DEST!

December, 2023 by icepilot139

I skied the entire trail over 6 days eastbound in February 2020. There were a few snow machines but they were never a problem. All were courteous and plenty of room to share the trail. Camping was fun and greatly aided by the picnic tables placed trailside. Very enjoyable trip!

Four Seasons Adventure Trail

Beautiful Ride

October, 2023 by debbiepch

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.

Ellsworth Trail

Perfect walking trail, short, but very pleasant

September, 2023 by kerwooddr

Plenty of places to park at either end of this out and back trail. No ATVs allowed, obviously. Just a bit short of three miles, roundtrip. Very easy walk, only downside is that it's very much on the short side, less that 1.5 miles each way, out and back. No facilities along the trail, though there are plenty of opportunities to walk a few dozen yards to visit local businesses and eateries. Dog friendly, on leash please, and a dog waste disposal can is about halfway along the trail. Would that all walking trails made that accommodation!

University of Maine Bicycle Path

Simple, uncomplicated

September, 2023 by kerwooddr

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!

Lagrange to Medford Trail

Rode my minibike the full length and back. Pretty area. I had a great time.
