Take 10 - Best mountain biking spots
Bradbury Mountain State Park, Pownal, Maine
Your significant other wants to spend the morning shopping in Freeport and you can't stand the thought. Great, drop him off and head 10 minutes inland to Pownal, home to Bradbury Mountain. If you want a technical climb to warm you up, start with the O trail. This leads to other fun trails like Fox East and Ragan. Across the street, near the camping area, there are some relatively new single tracks that will keep you on your toes. The short up-and-down runs lead to a series of switchbacks, perfect for a good three-hour spin. www.bradburymountain.com.
