The Rick Swan Trail System at the Perch Pond Woodlot is located off the Kirkland Road in Old Town and offers an expansive set of trails in the Bangor area, comprised of both mowed woods roads and challenging single track. The trail system at Swan’s was designed to provide drier riding conditions during the wet seasons, better user access to Perch Pond, and challenging New England style technical riding. All new trails were designed and built by mountain bikers and are open to all users. The single track trails range from a half mile to 2 miles or more in length and will challenge both intermediate and expert riders. Users may spot moose, deer, porcupine, and other wildlife while riding. An abundant supply of wild blackberries will provide a sweet snack for late summer riders and post ride beverages can be found in the nearby college town of Orono.
