Go straight on this road until you reach the Beaver Pond Bridge. There you have a choice - straight ahead to the Pond or take a left which will start you back towards your car. Keep on the road for approximately 1.5 miles, then bear left at the junction and stay on this road until you reach your car. This trip is a loop with many side roads that can be explored (although most are dead ends) All are fun riding and give you a very good chance to see wildlife. Approx. 12 Miles.

DEAD RIVER BIKE RUN: Leave your car off Route 27 (by Dead River Gifts). Head north and take your first left, on the the I.P. Road. Go straight by a small stream.

KENNEBAGO LOOP RIDE: This trip starts out looking the same as the Bengile Pond Ride, but it's quite different. It's a little harder and a bit longer. Park in the same place as you do for the Bengile Pond ride and head north. At the junction go straight up the side of the mountain, then down past a sand pit, and continuing past a Beaver Pond to a junction. This is where you have a choice. Go left to Route 16, then right, back to Langtown Bridge, or bear right to the Old County Road which turns left at the apple orchard (this is a rough road and a challenge for all). This takes you back to where you started up the mountain. Bear left to your car. Approx. 17 Miles.

STONEY BROOK BRIDGE TO HEDGEHOG VILLAGE: This is a difficult single-track trail intended for expert riders. Follow Christo's Hill until you reach the power line.
