Mountain Biking
Maine's Northwestern Mountains Region is home to some of the best mountain biking in the Northeast. Thanks to the efforts of the Town of Carrabassett Valley, the Carrabassett Region Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (CRNEMBA), Maine Huts & Trails, and Sugarloaf there are nearly 100 miles of trails to ride including over twenty miles of newly-constructed purpose-built singletrack for all abilities. These four organizations have come together to form the Carrabassett Valley Trails Committee (CVTC) to expand and maintain our growing trail network.
