Biking at Ragged Mountain Recreation Area
Our mountain bike trails are primarily maintained by the local Midcoast Maine Chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (McNEMBA). The Snow Bowl serves as the parking area and trailhead for the Snow Bowl and Goose River trail bike networks. The Kuller Trail is maintained by Camden Parks and Recreation. The trails are open to all kinds of bikes, including fat tire bikes and Class 1 eBikes*.
This active group promotes all aspects of mountain biking such as working with landowners, sponsoring trail rides, supporting special events and races, as well as maintaining the extensive system of trails. You can learn more about them by visiting mcnemba.com.
Rules and Considerations:
If there is a function at the lodge, please be courteous and ride well away from the activity on the lawn. Our trails are multi-use so be careful and expect to encounter hikers and dog walkers. Please stay on the trails and do not leave any trash. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the trails or ski slopes. Dogs are allowed and town ordinances require that you pick up your dog’s waste. There is a Mutt Mitt dispenser at the entrance kiosk, as well as on trees in the parking lot and near the trailhead. Many bikers enjoy a swim at the boat launch in Hosmer Pond after their ride. There is a portable toilet at the ball field, and public restrooms are available in the lodge on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

- Class 1: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and have a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph.

- Class 3: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and a maximum assisted speed of 28 mph.
