Hiking & Paddling: Camden Sampler @ Camden Hills State Park | Camden | Maine | United States

Join North Star Adventures for an exploration of Camden Hills State Park. We will start our day hiking the Maiden Cliff trail to the Ridge trail. Enjoy beautiful views of Lake Megunticook and Ragged Mountain. After a rest and re-hydrate we will descend to the the boat landing and paddle to Fernalds Neck Preserve. There we will have a picnic made from local organic ingredients and have time for a well deserved swim. Across the lake we will have a beautiful view of our previous hike, Maiden Cliff. The water of Lake Megunticook is beautiful, clean, clear and perfect for swimming. This is one of my favorite local excursions and I am delighted to share it with you. Treat yourself to an amazing day, on a beautiful lake, with fantastic views, local food and great swimming!

Maine Lobster Ride @ The Camden Snow Bowl
Jul 27 @ 7:00 am
Maine Lobster Ride @  The Camden Snow Bowl  | Camden | Maine | United States

The 2018 Maine Lobster Ride is Sunday, July 22, at the Camden Snow Bowl in Camden, Maine.

The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride follows winding, country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast past lighthouses, lupines and lobster boats. The ride features four distance options, from a family-friendly 15-miles to a 100-mile route that was recognized by Bicycling Magazine as one of the TOP TEN centuries in the country, as well as mountain bike rides and skills clinics.

The Maine Lobster Ride is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It directly benefits our education, advocacy, and outreach programs that help make Maine better for biking.

When we founded the Maine Lobster Ride 17 years ago, there were relatively few opportunities to participate in organized road rides in our state. Today, that landscape is very different, and in that sense Maine is measurably much better for bicycling today that it was. On any given summer weekend there are now several riding events.

So, we have decided to say goodbye to the Maine Women’s Ride and the Maine Lobster Ride, and refocus our efforts wholeheartedly on how best to deliver on our mission for as many people, in as many parts of the state, as possible. We will have a presence at many other events state-wide, and will continue to hold our signature event, BikeMaine. We will also recommit to our role as the leading advocacy and education organization for biking and walking in Maine. If you would like to learn more, or offer your thoughts, please email us at info@bikemaine.org

If you’ve been thinking that this is the year you’re going to ride the Maine Lobster Ride, register now! There’s still time to sign on. Come ride with us, and help us make our final Lobster Ride the best one ever.

Ragged Mountain Scuttle @ Camden Snow Bowl | Camden | Maine | United States

Join us for the 5th annual Ragged Mountain Scuttle to benefit One Community Many Voices. The course offers a variety of natural and man-made obstacles over a 5K course with plenty of elevation gain. Whether you’re racing as a team or an individual, we promise this will be an event you’ll be happy you signed up for. The majority of the 5K is on the Kuller trail, an intermediate level trail. The trail does has some steep pitches, and climbs 500 feet. The course will begin and end directly behind the snow bowl lodge.
