Kennebunkt Bridle Path

Kennebunkt Bridle Path Professional Review and Guide

"Anyone in the Kennebunkport area who is up for a simple ride might want to explore the Kennebunk Bridle Path. The trail is about the only off-road terrain available in the immediate area and offers a healthy way to spend an hour. A singletrack section begins beyond Maine 9 for some riding that will test your skills. If that sounds unappealing, stick to the Bridle Path, and then bike into Kennebunkport center. You can even continue north along the ocean toward Walkers Point.

The Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge borders both sides of the trail. In addition to views of flora and birds in the refuge, the trail runs a parallel course to the Mousam River. The singletrack paths that depart into the woods are off limits to bikes, so riders tempted by narrow trails will have to wait until the route changes beyond Maine 9 to a nicely beaten, more challenging singletrack path that follows the same flat course of the rail. Trail Surface: Smooth, flat gravel, with some loose surfaces along the singletrack"

This trail can be accessed via the driveway of Searoad School. It can also be accessed further west from Depot St. in Kennebunk(trail goes into the woods just after skate park). This trail is great for family riding. There are many nice veiws of the Mousam River and marsh, of which the trail follows. The path was originally a railway. Once you hit the end of the trail(once you cross Rt. 9 and continue, and hope the tide is'nt high) ride on the road and around the beach. If you feel you must, ride into Kennebunkport(watch for traffic and Massholes) and give George, Babs and the village idiot a holler.
