Mountain bikers raise $10,000 for Round the Mountain Trail

Oct 10, 2019

The Midcoast Chapter of New England Mountain Biking Association has met its $10,000 goal to claim a mile marker in support of the Round the Mountain Trail.  The Round the Mountain Mile Marker Challenge aims to encourage community groups and organizations to get actively involved in the creation of the Round the Mountain Trail.

The Round the Mountain Collaboration has raised more than $4.8 million toward the conservation of 1,500 acres of land around Ragged Mountain in Camden, Rockport and Hope, as well as the development of the nine-mile Round the Mountain Trail.

Construction of the first 5.5 miles of the Round the Mountain Trail between the Camden Snowbowl and a new trailhead on the southern side of Ragged Mountain along Hope Street began this summer. The trail, which is designed for non-motorized recreational use, will be between six and eight feet in width and will accommodate users of all skill levels.

McNemba members ride, build trails, and promote mountain biking in the Camden, Rockport, Rockland and Lincolnville area of coastal Maine. They partner with local government, landowners and land conservation groups to secure cooperative, community-based support for mountain bikers and a connected trail system.
