    Carrabassett Valley riding and dogs?

    Thinking about heading over there this year for some riding and wondering what the dog situation is? Are they welcome on the trails? And by "welcome" I'm talking about an uber-friendly 35lb trail dog who has been trained to run behind my bike and responds to verbal commands (although she does need a reminder from a vibrating collar when she sees a squirrel/chipmunk).
    Thanks.

    If I remember correctly;

    Dog must be on leash on the rail trail section. Leash or verbal command in the singletracks.

    During the week, trails are mostly empty, we rarely see anyone there.

    It's a good scene for dog with one major road crossing between the touring center-side trails and the trails along the Guage and (Sm)oak knoll.

    Good to know, thanks. I try to be conscious of the dog etiquette when I ride in new places, and sometimes the published policy is different than actual local rider policy. For instance I was down in North Carolina last year, and policy said no dogs, locals said as long as they are under voice control and are trained they are welcome...
