At least half (if not more) of the trails in the "bog" actually lie on BLT properties. As a land trust they must balance conservation and the recreational needs of their many users. Mountain bikers are their largest user group on these trails, we have put in hours of trail work on our own and with BLT over the past few years. And yet very few of us are paid members. Please consider joining or making a donation. It would be nice to show BLT that conservation AND trails are not mutually exclusive......here's the link: BLT Donate Page
And if you are a rider of the Orono Land Trust properties, consider joining or donating to this land trust: OLT Donate Page
And don't forget about us! Since we have organized we have been forging relationships with landowners. And they are taking notice. So please support our efforts to improve mountain biking opportunities in our community by joining or renewing here
The Rick Swan trails at Perch Pond are all groomed and ready to go. However, PLEASE stay off of them until further notice. They were already softening up at the end of the grooming session and the temps will keep rising until later this week. As long as they don’t lose too much snow, they should be ready to rip once the temps drop back down to normal. Enjoy the touch of spring and we will see you out there once normal temps return.
Also, I apologize for interrupting the rides for the people enjoying the trails today. Thanks for being patient. ...
Good to see so many folks out yesterday enjoying the trails! ...
Heide and I made it up to Old Town yesterday to do some fat biking with friends at Perch Pond. A rare moment of off farm activity for us.
Thank you to the Penobscot Region NEMBA for creating and grooming such a great network of trails. Lots of ideas for the future trail network here on the farm.
