The 6-Pack Trail Series is our spring trail clean-up and project series.

Spring seems to have sprung (cue the snow storm) and we are moving up our annual spring trail "opener" trail work series. This Saturday, April 17, 2021 @ 8:30am to 12, we'll be working on the Rollins/ Goose Network. Chris Rogers will be leading the day's work.

Here are the rest of the details:

Meet in Toboggan-ville at Camden Snow Bowl (stay to the Left as you pull into the driveway. Bring your bike, loppers and pruners, work gloves and a mask for working near others in close proximity if required. We'll do a brief orientation to the plans for the day (general season opening tasks and the beginning of rehabbing a true beginners loop within the system) and have you sign the NEMBA waiver and take attendance in case of contact tracing. Then we'll ride over to the trail network and put some love into our trails until 12. This is our first of 6 consecutive spring Saturday trail "openers."

If you want to take care of the waiver now:NEMBA annual online waiver

Description

Essex Woods has an awesome trail system packed into a very small area.

Bangor Parks and Recreation manages the 70 acre recreation area.

Penobscott Region NEMBA has worked with the town to develop a trail system that has something for every level of rider including kids.

Essex Woods has about 5 miles of trails. And while that might not seem like a lot I challenge you to ride them without doing repeats.

Many repeats! The trails are that much fun.

Oh! And no one goes around the pump track just once.

In season PR NEMBA has leads kid's rides on the property. It's the perfect place for kids to develop their riding skills.

Trail maintenance and new trail construction has been done by PR NEMBA, working with the city of Bangor.

Here's a news artice on the Essex Woods Mountain Bike Trails.   (The lower video link works the best.)

Essex Woods is open to class 1 eMTBs.

Piscataquis County NEMBA

  • We have been developing a trail program with the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands for the past three years. Most significantly, the Bureau has newly permitted access for trails within a 15,000 acre public parcel - Little Moose Preserve - in Greenville Maine. We have the support of the Town of Greenville and the Moosehead Economic Council as well as the local business community to move forward with an extensive trail system to include all trail development, a parking trailhead, maps, signage and pump track. Greenville is a small town but the population expands during the summer/fall seasons with second-home owners and tourists.
