Only been once, but I was blown away. Extremely technical due to the combination of steep declines and rocks. If you visit make sure conditions are dry - some of the trails have a very smooth rock-base that I couldn't even walk up when dry (and are steep!). Lots of rock gardens where rock size varies greatly. Overall, best trails I've seen in Maine; and I do Bradbury every week as I live around the corner from it. Definitely making this place more regular after just discovering it. Dual suspension is a must. This mountain was a ski slope at one time.

This place is a buffet. Much of Ring Trail (the main loop "around" the mountain) is quite technical, and some of the climbs can be grueling. On the other hand, horse trail and the other side of Ring offer some more aerobic enjoyment, with little in the way of technical obstacles. There are also ATV trails if you really want to open up the lungs, but I'm not a fan. In any case, I'm not aware of any riding in NH or Southern Maine that offers a wider range.

Park at the base of Big A road. If you are looking for technical, head in and stay straight on Ring Trail... it'll get hairy in a jiffy. If you're looking for an easier ride, about 500 feet in from the same entrance, take a left, and follow it out to the road. Cross the road (look both ways, those bikers are nuts, and cars coming down the hill are pretty quiet) and dive back onto Ring. You will get a chance to pump the legs here. Either way, you have a number of ascent options. Once you have explored the main hill for a few rides, you can check out hill 2 (and hill 3 if you can find it). Follow Goosefoot, I believe it is, and it will spill you out to an area marking the trail to ascent hill 2. This is a tough climb that only gets tougher at the end... make it all the way up without touching down and I'll buy you a beer!

These trails are great. Intermediate to advanced single track. Lots of technical rocky climbs and decsents. A couple of small ledge drops. We rode for three hours and did not hit everything. You willl quickly travel off the park map that is at the trail head. We had a GPS and after a couple wrong turns found our way back. There is great riding beyond the boundry. We did not check out the trails across the road, but they were also reccomended. A technical riders paradise.

Ridden once, Definitely going back. Me and a buddy headed out here on the main trail (ring loop) to the top some very rock technical riding. I agrees with the earlier comment that this is more of a 4 than a 3 on the cardio work. The ride up is pretty brutal on the legs. The ride down is great, technical quick and some good drops. We were on some tight single track most of the day. On the way down we did end up on a hiking trail and were definitely over matched so we rode back up the paved road to the summit to make another run down. This is a great ride in southern maine though, and really when your there you feel like you are in a much more isolated portion of the white mountains. Hope to get back out and explore further onto the other peaks.

Ring loop to witch hazel up, and we came back down on the "hair pin turn" to the lower portion of the ring trail.

If you want directions from the interior of Maine (you never see the bumpah-tah-bumpah Route 1 in the middle of summer--thank you, Jesus!) check out my review in the OTHER Mt. Agamenticus trail listing in the Maine list.

Trails are much like other riders, and myself, have described previously, although Goosefoot has had some off-to-the-side switchbacks built to let the most eroded (and practically unrideable)go back to nature. I'm entering this new review to give directions how to reach Mt. A from the interior of Maine. It saves me 15 minutes of driving time. Also, one other thing, reviews have pegged the aerobic difficulty at a 3 out of 5. My experience is that it's a 4, or more. But maybe I'm an aerobic wimp. Don't think so. In any case, it depends on the speed you're going and the rest and route you take. DIRECTIONS: Heading south on Route 4 out of North Berwick, take a left onto Knight's Pond Road. If you get to Lowery's (they sell lawn furniture) you've gone too far. On KPR, go 0.85 mile to stop sign at T take a left onto Hooper Sands Road. Go 1.7 to another T, right after crossing bridge, and there, take a left. Go O.2 then turn right onto Belle Marsh Road. Go 0.6 and take left on Mountain Road--after 0.95 it will turn to dirt (graded gravel in summer months, closed from 11/1 to 4/30, although there weren't any barricades during that period). After 1.6 miles on the dirt, the pavement reappears, and you're at the base of the Mt. A summit road. It's easy to do this route once you've done it a couple of times.

i'm from western NY and come up to NH every summer and i always like going to this place. i have only been like three times but this place offers some challenging stuff. not alot of jumps, logrides, or completely retarded freeride stuff that i like to do at home but its got alot of natural stuff that is just as hairy as any stuff in NY. alot of fun downhills and XC stuff. i like how everything is rocky and there are some awesome drop offs if you go on the "no biking" trails. when i was there nobody seemed to care and those trails seemed to be those most fun. a good work out, nice senery, lots of technical stuff and some scarey desents. this place is defately worth while. some amazing trails with views that are quite amazing. try it out.

You gotta love Aggie for the varied terrain. I ride all over maine and besides Prides Loop, which incidentaly has become a tad smaller due to developement, Aggie has got it covered. Wether your preference is climbing, downhill, or single-trail switch-back action you need to ride Aggie. Even though, while staying on the main trails, as short as they are it would at first seem a simple or pointless ride, but it is so fun riding the different types of hazards and trail options.Plus you can change your path of attack each time through and alter your experience without getting completely lost or frustrated. Everyone I came across on the trails were friendly and accommodating as well, which you'll agree makes every ride even better.

The route I start with heads up on the western portion of the Ring Trail headings towards but passing for now, Horse Trail. Continue until a left on to Chestnut Oak Trail (which in not marked, but before the continuation of Ring Trail) for some fun up and down single track. Take a left on to Porcupine Trail heading north and look for an eventual right on to and ascending the Second Hill Trail to the summit. Take a breather. Retrace your journey downhill on the same Second hill trail and again through Porcupine veering right on to the this time more challenging Chestnut Oak Trail back uphill to the Ring Trail. You can now head up Ring Trail connecting to Witch Hazel or straight up Sweet Fern a little further down the trail depending on how much you like to climb. Take a breather. Now the decent is completely up in the air, taking Horse Trail is fast single-track switch-back action until a left on Ring Trail then you just follow Ring Trail back to your car. But Sweet Fern is a super fast straight downhill that will rock-your-socks of literally to a longer backtrack of Ring Trail that is exremely fun with lots of technical and up and downs. Mix it up and have fun.
