This four-day mountain biking getaway offers an isolated adventure in the time of social distancing. Tucked away in Western Maine’s White Mountains lies 30 miles of singletrack on a private reserve maintained by Back Country Excursions. For all reservations through October 2021, Back Country Excursions can offer you or your small group their entire operations without others - so you can enjoy the trails in solitude.
The trail system offers a wide variety of terrain and elevations, winding through forests and past glistening mountain lakes, making for the ride of a lifetime. Rides are geared and grouped according to rider ability, stamina, and comfort level. You can either get your adrenaline fix or be carefully instructed by an expert guide on trails appropriately matched for your ability and interest. There's even a 4,000 square foot Technical Terrain Park right in back of the lodge, complete with drop-offs, log chutes, stairs, and more! High quality bikes and helmets are included in the package, allowing you to travel light and skip the baggage fees. If you want to take a break from mountain biking, you always have the option to hop in a kayak or canoe or go inner-tubing at the nearby lake.
After spending the day adventuring, unwind at the cozy mountain lodge compound. Enjoy delicious breakfasts and lunches on the spacious flagstone porch. Rustle up your own dinner on available barbecues or in the lodge kitchen, or go out to a variety of local eateries, then soak away the day’s soreness in the wood-fired hot tub before heading to bed. Enjoy the solitude of Maine's White Mountains on this peaceful and exciting pedaling adventure!
