Atherton Mountain - Trail, Cumberland, Maine

Atherton Mountain - Trail, Cumberland, Maine


This trail is a loop about 6.5 miles long. When you get to the power line turn right and follow it until you reach another trail going back into the woods from the direction you came to reach the powerline. This will take you to an old fire tower site on Atherton Mountain. This trail is very challenging with four major climbs over rooty and rocky terrain. Several descents over similar terrain. The descent from the fire tower is rideable for all but a small 40 yard section. This too can be ridden once you look it over from below and plan your approach. If wet, forget it! I've never ridden this trail without at least one person getting a minor injury or breaking something on their bike.
