southern maine wheeling trails?
 
Does anyone know of any good trails here in southern maine (around biddeford type southern maine) that we can "legally" wheel on? I want to get out and start having some fun, but I also don't want to drop $250 for camp jeep or wreck my jeep since it's my commuter... might need to wait for spring though...

ok, so I found some decent back roads. It's the old kennebunk road. If you look at a map, off of the turnpike exit in Kennebunk, head north-west down into west kennebunk on the Alfred Road. You go straight at the blinking red light (this crosses thompson road), past the Kennebunk Animal Shelter. Keep going straight and you'll see on the map where the road splits off in like a three pronged Y (old falls road goes off to the left, cole road goes off to the right). Keep going straight on what's called middle road on google maps, and the road finally crosses the old north berwick road. Go straight across this somewhat main road and it turns into a dirt road. There's an excavation company down this road a ways with an active quarry. Just past the quary area the road heads up into the woods and gets pretty rocky. This road itself isn't terribly amazing jeeping, but there's a bunch of little side trails that head off into the woods down a ways. Some are wired off, some aren't... I found it by accident coming from another direction, but figured out once I got home where exactly the road is.

here's directions from the turnpike: look at this map and it's pretty self explanatory

Some nice trails in Berwick around Murdock lake:
Take Rte 9 into Berwick.
Turn right onto Wilson Rd (at traffic light).
Turn Right at first stop sign (Sullivan Rd).
Bear left onto Pine Hill Road
Take Pine Hill Rd about 2 miles
Turn left onto Ridlon Rd.
Ridlon road becomes dirt road after 1/2 mile or so.
You'll cross the Salmon Falls river.
You'll see a Sod farm on your left.
Around this point you'll begin to see some dirt turn-offs on your right. These are trails to and around the lake. Here are the GPS coordinates: 43.3241N 70.8855W

Also some nice mud to play in nearby.:dance:

Here's a shot from last weekend:

Hey guys--- coming up to Booth Bay Harbor next week--- anyone around and willing to take me out to see some trails

kpickens11 07-01-2013 05:17 PM

I'd like to go out on Sunday or Monday most likely. I'd like to run moderate trails, not aiming for breakdowns because I have to drive it home 8 hrs.

I didn't contribute earlier in the thread, but I would be interested in some light or medium wheeling. I just bought my first Jeep (2013 JK) last August. I'm in Windham, you are not far down the 'pike...

Goodness181 04-02-2014 04:40 PM

Yea deff. I don't necessarily have to pilot this but would love to get something going. I also am looking for light to medium trailing.

Markr 04-03-2014 07:20 PM

I'm in Portland. I'm always down for some trail riding. Lewiston at All Wheels seems to be the best I've found around here though I am not originally from this area.

Goodness181 04-03-2014 07:30 PM

Do you guys have face book? Maybe we can start a page and get like a community going.

radeonDEUS 04-10-2014 07:29 AM

i would totally be down to do some wheeling, if yall can deal with a non-jeeper lol. what the hell am i doing here you ask? well just looking for trails actually. ive got a sierra 1500, does the trick all right. looking for a spot to do some wheelin and have a place to stop for some woods campin. I found a place near dutch elm golf course last night that wasnt marked 'no trespassing' so I am going to check it out tonight. Lovin the shot of Murdock lake above...might check that out too. any other places nearby?

radeonDEUS 04-10-2014 07:36 AM

would love to hear of other places within the vicinity...

89yjmainiac 04-15-2014 06:49 PM

Once I get the YJ up and running I'm going to be looking for se trails!

MaineTraveller 05-04-2014 09:17 PM

I'm up for some light trails on the weekends. I'll have to upgrade the JKU above stock before anything serious. In Lincoln or Bangor areas.

radeonDEUS 05-21-2014 11:53 AM

ended up going to the spot off kennebunk road. there is a nice network of 'trails' out there, more just roads but, out there and quiet, and there are SOME trails. found a nice little spot near some water, would have loved to find a spot ON the water, but no luck. Anyone know of any camp sites like that around? I know of a bunch up in Baxter, but am looking for some a little close to home...

flyalot 06-20-2014 10:45 PM

I'm always up for for a little adventure! I just sold my YJ for the family friendly JK but it's set up nicely . Pm me or let me know of any clubs in the area.
