    What's your favorite place(s) to ride in Maine?

    I'll go first. Bradbury is my favorite on the weekends only because I don't know of anywhere else with the same quantity of trails that's only 30 minutes away.

    I also go to Libby Hills trails in Gray a lot since its its only 10 minutes from my house. I Guess there are some trails at Range Pond state park which is about 20 minutes away so I may check those out this week.

    Went to Libby Hill after work and got the crap kicked out of me and my bike on the outback trail which is nothing but roots and HUGE chunk. Spent lots of time falling and walking.

    Do you think Mt Waldo is worth a 2 hour drive north for me? from what I can find it only has 2 miles of trails.

    Range Pond

    Because its only 15 min. from my house and I helped build a lot of it, Range Pond is my favorite after work trail just enought there for a good work out

    I do love Bradbury, miles of trails it would take a weekend to hit it all.

    oh can't forget the Wild River High Water trail.I think some of it is in Maine and some is in New Hampsire.

    Is Mt A considered in NH for the purposes of this discussion? Otherwise, I'm not sure why it hasn't got a mention yet.

    No. Head to N. Conway instead for real mountains. Mt Waldo is pretty cool, but not worth making a destination out of. That is not fact, just my opinion.

    Found a couple of interesting looking trails here: Maine Trails

    So bummed by how soon it gets dark now, by the time I get home from work at 6 Its too dark to even bother driving 15 minutes down the road for a 30 minute ride.

    Waldo Is a great place to have in your backyard and a great place to ride if you are in the area. It is one big climb and 2 rad descents. I can do 2 laps in under 2 hours so it more of a place to do multiple laps or get in a quicker ride. It can be ridden on anything but it was made for All Mountain bikes.

    No it is the state where you need a sense of adventure and the ability to read a map. Not every trail head has a Kiosk marking out where to go and what to ride. Most of the trails are unmarked and alot of them are on private land that the land owners don't want them marked.

    Besides, Getting lost is half the fun. I got lost on Sunday and it turn a 20 mile ride into a 40 miler.
