Summary:
Only been once, but I was blown away. Extremely technical due to the combination of steep declines and rocks. If you visit make sure conditions are dry - some of the trails have a very smooth rock-base that I couldn't even walk up when dry (and are steep!). Lots of rock gardens where rock size varies greatly. Overall, best trails I've seen in Maine; and I do Bradbury every week as I live around the corner from it. Definitely making this place more regular after just discovering it. Dual suspension is a must. This mountain was a ski slope at one time.

Recommended Route:
Google it for god sake. :)

Summary:
This place is a buffet. Much of Ring Trail (the main loop "around" the mountain) is quite technical, and some of the climbs can be grueling. On the other hand, horse trail and the other side of Ring offer some more aerobic enjoyment, with little in the way of technical obstacles. There are also ATV trails if you really want to open up the lungs, but I'm not a fan. In any case, I'm not aware of any riding in NH or Southern Maine that offers a wider range.

Recommended Route:
Park at the base of Big A road. If you are looking for technical, head in and stay straight on Ring Trail... it'll get hairy in a jiffy. If you're looking for an easier ride, about 500 feet in from the same entrance, take a left, and follow it out to the road. Cross the road (look both ways, those bikers are nuts, and cars coming down the hill are pretty quiet) and dive back onto Ring. You will get a chance to pump the legs here. Either way, you have a number of ascent options. Once you have explored the main hill for a few rides, you can check out hill 2 (and hill 3 if you can find it). Follow Goosefoot, I believe it is, and it will spill you out to an area marking the trail to ascent hill 2. This is a tough climb that only gets tougher at the end... make it all the way up without touching down and I'll buy you a beer!

Summary:
These trails are great. Intermediate to advanced single track. Lots of technical rocky climbs and decsents. A couple of small ledge drops. We rode for three hours and did not hit everything. You willl quickly travel off the park map that is at the trail head. We had a GPS and after a couple wrong turns found our way back. There is great riding beyond the boundry. We did not check out the trails across the road, but they were also reccomended. A technical riders paradise.

Summary:
Ridden once, Definitely going back. Me and a buddy headed out here on the main trail (ring loop) to the top some very rock technical riding. I agrees with the earlier comment that this is more of a 4 than a 3 on the cardio work. The ride up is pretty brutal on the legs. The ride down is great, technical quick and some good drops. We were on some tight single track most of the day. On the way down we did end up on a hiking trail and were definitely over matched so we rode back up the paved road to the summit to make another run down. This is a great ride in southern maine though, and really when your there you feel like you are in a much more isolated portion of the white mountains. Hope to get back out and explore further onto the other peaks.

Recommended Route:
Ring loop to witch hazel up, and we came back down on the "hair pin turn" to the lower portion of the ring trail.
