Near Augusta, the 10 mile Cedar Mountain Trail Loop is a rolling, technical route. Get ready for an uphill WAKE-UP-CALL start and its just the first of 3 more climbs. With enough downhills and brakes in between this is an epic 10 mi. loop. On the way up theres nice wooded sections of singlemountain bike track as well as trighter double and techical stuff. The view and finale slick rock up to the summit is worth the seemingly long uphill. On the way down, same way you came up till the 4 way trail intersection where you now head off to right on an awesome doubletrack downhill fireball of fun.. Soon you cross over Merrill Hill Rd. where trail continues at cemetary on other side. This section along the ridge has everything easy cruising doubletracts to start then into washed out technical stream bed bopping and finally culminating with major air time on a series of 10 waterbars some almost 5 high. After jumps hang a sharp left onto improved dirt road onto Middle Road Parsonsfield, Me. and soon you ll be back where you began.
From all directions, take SR25 to SR160. comming in from North take a right up Merrill Hill Road and from South take a left then go 1.4 Mi. up Merrill Hill to first White farmhouse on right. Trailhead is on left just before this farm.
Overall, Cedar Mountain Trail Loop is the 5th most popular mountain bike trail of all 9 mountain biking rides in Maine.
