Trails- 30+ miles of 'em!

in the treesAll trails are on one large private preserve. Here we run our business and share a recreational easement with the state of Maine and other local users . Through years of hard work we have maintained much of the trail system and serve as a loyal steward of the property. Utilizing strict sustainable practices our trails represent an excellent model of sustainability. For riders that have a sincere interest in responsible trail use we will be happy to guide you for a fee. And for responsible users we also offer a seasons riding pass. Please call or e-mail ahead for trail updates, riding times, and reservations. We can guarantee virtually mud-free trails and lots of great, flowing singletrack, or your money back.

Novice Singletrack Trails (Total 6 miles)

5. Quilted Northern
6. Lumpy Gravy

Ride All Day, Every Day

During the spring, summer and fall we're on the trail pretty much every day. While a weekend or special event may not suit you, we welcome the casual riders anytime for a day of riding our 30 miles of trails. It's not a good idea to just show up as we do require a prior eservation.

Trail Riding Options

All riding arrangements through BCE require a guide and offer access to all trails, stunt park, parking, and shower facilities.
Whole day with lunch: $60 per rider
Whole day without lunch: $50 per rider
