    Ricker Hill Farms

The original trail from the way back era has been resurrected and rebuilt for some ripping mtb action. Dirt rollers, small rock gardens, flat turns and some tricky off camber make this a less than straight forward Maine mess.

Access Info

Parking at the Ricker Hill Tasting Room at 11 Ricker Hill Road in Turner. Climb pavement/dirt/double track route to the top or soon to open single track and follow the Spine single track to the summit of Teague Hill. Take an breather and marvel at the incredible altitude of 249 meters before heading down the Yellow H/Backside trail.
