  • wow this place in Kennebunkport is concentrated twisties and grunts like nothing else

    looks small but the riding is HUGE

    I only did an 8 mile run, but the closest bike shop sez you can scrounge up 18 miles of pure lean 100% beef, no fillers here

    maybe 2 miles of carriage road, then never ending loops of upper body gruntfest

    there is a small parking area at the trailhead, and this place was built for bikes

    oh man if you are up that way this is an absolute MUST.

    it is like Russell Mill, and the PR, and Fern Loop at GB combined, but with all the easy stuff removed.

    Is the place loaded with rock? Technical?

    I drive by the Kennebunkport exit almost every weekend during DH season. Would be nice to hit some ST to break up the 3+ hour commute.

    Thanks for the map and info!!!!!!!!!

      no technical like 'forced jumps', though there are LOADS of stuff you could find

      technical like, sudden braking, tight turns, hurk up rock, off-camber descents...
      and a ton of that....linked by some carriage roads

      the trail is super rolly tight twisties on rocks. technical yes you might need to be 'expert rider' or you may not have
      fun at all. lots of bouldering and going into channels where you drop in a small vert and then need to immediately
      pop back up with a 'hurk' on the bars. like a circus.

      if you go by there, it is a definite must check out and learn the trail system. a few dead ends
      on my map were wide trails but to backyards. most have a PRIVATE sign on trees (kudos for that)

      North and West of my map there are scads of woods I didn't even check out. I was beat up enough
      for the 8 miles I did. next time i am eating my wheaties and for sure there will be many 'next times'

      once you find the rocky rolling 6 mile singletrack (yellow marker trail) , the place is baller !

      there is a bike shop nearby run by the people who used to run the now closed Cape Able bike shop,
      Kennbunkport Bicycle Company (in the link below it is the big yellow building) these are the local crew
      and they pointed me to this place. they say there is a lot I didn't find in there. I found the obvious stuff
      (which was pretty meaty)

        Stopped in there today. Figured I'd give it a run with my buddy after I saw this post. We do a bit of work occasionally up there so why not. The beginning is a little boring but once you get a little deeper onto the yellow trail, which is clearly marked, it's a blast. Highly recommend a stop at this one. A bit faster paced then fort rock in NH, which is where we usually go, but great still. Obviously the two trails are quite different though.

        Update: Trail map for those interested
