Let's talk about fourwheeling trails and Jeep trails in Maine.
To be clear, this article covers an overview of the offroading landscape in Maine, as well as OHV trails, fourwheeling trails, Jeep trails, 4x4 trails, and all types of offroad trails in ME for full-size vehicles.
We are going WAY up with this blog to one of the most northern states in the US - Maine. The W2W Map currently has 12 offroad trail listings in Maine and we are going to briefly touch on a few of these to give you an overview of the state. We will start with the northern area of the state and work our way south. The most northern trail listing we have is Highcut Trail located not far from Dover-Foxcroft in Garland. ME. Highcut is a very steep and very rocky trail, so lockers and rocksliders are highly recommended for this trail to avoid damage to the rig. There is a nice turn around and picnic/scenic area at the top of the trail.
Moving south and to the west, we come to two of the three offroad parks that are located in the state of Maine - Barnyard All Terrain and Rocky Mountain Terrain Park. Barnyard is a mud park that is open on select weekends and holds lots of events. To find out their event and open schedule visit their website here. About 40 minutes south of Barnyard and to the west of Farmington is Rocky Mountain Terrain Park. This park is located in the town of Carthage, ME and has trails for 4x4 vehicles, ATV's, dune buggies, and dirt bikes. They are famous for their deep mud pits - try at your own craziness - and for guided tours/rides based on your level of skill and experience. They just recently added a rock garden as well to test out those rock crawling skills. Due to all the mud pit fun, would make sure to have a tow rope handy in case you or friends get stuck.
Almost directly across the state is another popular trail, Bald Mountain Trail, located right outside of Bangor, ME. The Bald Mountain trail is alot like Highcut and is very steep and rocky, In fact, this trail has a sheer rock climb up to the top. Although if you do make it to the top, you are rewarded with some amazing views of the landscape that can't be beat! To tackle this trail I would definitely have some type of recovery kit with me in my rig - one of my favorites is this one by Gear America.
To round out the offroad landscape in Maine, we will travel down south to near Lewiston, Me where Hermond's MX and Offroad Park is located. Hermond's is New England's premier motorcross and offroad riding facility. This place started as just a motorcross park, but has added offroad trails since then. They claim to be "A recreational playground for friends and families to enjoy and create lasting memories". To learn more about Hermond's I would check out their website here.
There are also lots of 4x4 trail options over in the state of New Hampshire if you are willing to drive some to get off the pavement. You can find these offroad trail listings on the Where2Wheel map, or on our New Hampshire Offroad Trails blog. Lastly, below is a screenshot overview of the offroad trails in Maine that Where2Wheel has. If you know of more trails and are willing to add them, then we would greatly appreciate it. Hope you enjoyed this blog and happy wheeling!
