Old Bethel Road

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Rocky doubletrack that is part of the state atv / snowmobile trail system. If you are looking for sweet singletrack, or only ride singletrack, this ride is not for you. This trail offers some rolling hills and nice rocky uphill climbs. (Try the trail up to the ice caves) It's not extreme or expert rated. It's a beautiful ride into remote western Maine. Rode it on a hardtail with no problem. You will not be near to much other than a few seasonal homes, so bring your supplies and food !

Summary:
If you like rocky double-track riding this one's for you. This is a beautiful ride in the back country. The trail has some sections that are fast, some that are sandy, some that are rocky, and a few that are muddy. Bring plenty of water and your extra tube. Watch out for a rare atv.

Recommended Route:
Start at either end of the route. It's a nice ride in the Western Maine mountains.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kezar falls gorge area, Virginia lake. Parts of the state snowmobile trail system. Drive on any road in the area and look for old logging roads.
