Great variety of trails in Carrabassett Valley with almost equal climbing and decent. It has the majority of the best downhill tracks in Carrabassett Valley. Starts and ends at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center. You could easily add mileage at just about any point if you so desired. Enduro style.

 Really glad I went and hit Widowmaker, great little natural and tough trail. Bear Trail was the highlight of the whole ride, absolutely amazing. I don't think coming down Newton's Revenge is worth it. It had a few little pieces of awesome trail, but it was mostly too fast double track (losing elevation without the fun). Lap Bear Trail twice and then descend Oak Knoll instead.
