Just did a modified route here

We did most of the NNET in a long day. Created a nice workaround for the Dartmouth grant by turning north up and around on parmachenee road once we crossed into Maine. No gate issues and great long unpaved stretches. The recent rain didnt effect things much for us on an F800 with Heideneau and a GSA with Karoo 3s.

Spent the night in the Sugarloaf area before a long ride back toward the Adirondacks (on pavement) the next day. Very enjoyable.

Nice. We were up that way a couple of weeks ago, and did exactly the same thing. Went up Cedar Stream, then the Magalloway Road and wound our way over to the Parmachenee road. Despite the rains, the roads are in excellent shape in most places. With good tires, you can easily do 45 - 50 without much sweat. Watch for wildlife. I had a two-foot brush with a large deer not far off the Parmachenee Road. Stick to the right and keep your sight lines clear. There are plenty of people from "away" that are taking their half out of the middle or even over on your side.

Just imported all the tracks from the first page, and plan on doing this rt in the next 4 weeks or so. Whenever I can get away. Are the tracks still accurate? Any changes?

I'll be leaving RI, heading to the TMT->PDR->NNEA->??? Depending on time, I'll wind my way back home, or slab it. Still not sure how long I can get away with being gone, but that's the plan so far!

Cheers

Your gonna like it.
Mallowgay Mountain is very cool. There is gas and food (general store) once you hit the pavement in Maine.

advisible to ride alone on Northern New England Adventure Trail?

Hello:

I am planning to spend a few days riding in New England this week and wanted to ride some sections of the Northern New England Adventure Trail, but I am traveling alone. Any sections that I should avoid? I am fairly experiences off road but not an "expert"

Thanks for the advice,

Stellario

It's a clean route, and fairly well traveled at this time of year. I had an electrical problem on the Magalloway a few weeks ago, and got all kinds of help from a guy who was up fly-fishing from Georgia.

It is however largely without cell coverage, and at times far away from any cheap rescue. If you're traveling with a windbreaker and titanium card, I'd place my trust in the windbreaker; it doesn't matter what your limit is. Bring spares, tools, and ride safe and sane and it's a pretty good time.

One of my constant worries about this route is the legalities. They change all the time. I've just taken the attitude that it's better to apologize than to ask permission. The Maine wardens are the primary law-enforcement up there. If you're obviously not a dick, aware of your situation, and wearing gear, they'll give you a pat on the wrist, and let you ride out to the next legal junction, if you keep a civil tongue. They have bigger fish to fry.

Enforcement is extremely light.

The store Dockingpilot refers to is here:

http://www.mtdustancountrystore.com/‎

You can buy good steaks there. (You cook 'em.)

Awesomely HUGE pulled-pork sandwich.

A clean and cheap place to stay is Littlehale's Aziscoos Valley Camping Area:

Say "hi" to Norman and his wife for me. Great place, and they are very generous with the firewood.

report on ride

This past weekend I have travelled the second section of the trail from Sutton to Eustis. I peeled off there since it was getting dark and I was not equipped to camp. It was a fantastic ride. Road conditions were perfect and I was able to travel at 30 to 40 mph the entire time. Someone less interested in the scenery and/or a better rider than me could mostly likely go faster but what a waste it would be! The road goes through amazing wilderness and I enjoyed every second of it.
I only wish I had more time and that I was not traveling alone. It is not easy to leave the trail, find non camping accommodations and get back on it the next day. I would love to complete the entire trail and I would welcome and even be willing to pay for a guided group ride. In the fall this must be magnificent.
Thank you Canuman for putting this together. If you are ever in NJ let me know. I owe you a drink to say the least. Heck, let's make it dinner.

Much of the route is Dockingpilot's. I worked on the western sections to connect it to the PDR. There is a direct connection to the puppy at North Troy. If it's missing, I can repost it.

Writing a GPS track has little glory. You pick up the pieces, clean them up,and go on. I never disrespected Dockingpilot , and I feel that credit has been given where credit is due.

heading out Labor Day Weekend.

will be riding some of the puppy trail in VT (ridden it a bunch already) to Lake Willoughby Friday/Saturday. Then Monday will be hitting the Summit to Forks, going to camp at Moosehead lake. There I think I'll stay for a day or two and do some rides from there. Then I'll make my own route to Acadia national Park. Would love to have company if someone is around.
