    Any Good Riding Near Freeport Maine?

    I'm going to be in Freeport, Maine this summer. Any cool places to ride?
    I can handle pretty gnarly terrain by myself and then I'd also need a wife-kid friendly trail for another day.
    Thanks.

    Bradbury is one of the best spots around...The trails across the street and very well maintained and would be great for all abilities.

    I was up there right around Thanksgiving just for two days. Didn't bring the bikes. I stopped in the LL Bean bike shop and I THINK the guy in the store said Bradbury but I have a memory like a sieve. Thanks guys.
    I look forward to riding there.

    Bradbury Mountain State Park
    East side (of route 9) is all basically intermediate singletrack - except the relentless "O" trail...
    West side of Rt 9 is the mountain side - less singletrack, but more elevation.
    Please respect other trail users, this park gets a ton of family hikers and bikers, so far managing conflict has been minimal!!!
    Enjoy!

    This is great info. I will add that during peak usage the majority of family hikers stay to the west side of Rt 9 and the bikers tend to stay to the east.

    If you want to ride the west side try early in the morning on a weekday.

    One other note is that Bradbury has an entrance fee of $3 per visit. You can also buy a season pass that gets you into all Maine state parks for the season for $35. A vehicle pass that is good for all persons in your vehicle(up to 7) is $70 per season.

    So... I was able to hit Bradbury this past Saturday in the afternoon after the sun finally came out. There were some puddles on the trails but they were awesome.
    My wife and son were able to climb Snowmobile Trail and coast back down. I hit a couple of the singletracks and had a ball.
    Thanks guys for the tip. I'll definitely be back.
    BTW, my cousin owns that Edna and June's just down the road.

    Great to hear you enjoyed it. We often stop at Edna and June's for a bite after a long ride. Great food.
