Biking

Bicyclists of all levels can find fun on two wheels at Quarry Road.

Wide gravel paths in the meadows provide excellent walking and biking for active families, beginning cyclists, and those with limited mobility.  The River Loop trails offers rolling hills and opportunity for an invigorating aerobic workout or a leisurely ride enjoying the views of the stream for more casual cyclists. The North and South Koons loops provide spacious but challenging climbs and thrilling descents.

Miles of purpose-built singletrack provide ample challenge and excitement for mountain bikers of all abilities, including a climb to fantastic views from the top of the old Colby Ski Area.

A pump track near the yurt provides a fun and challenging venue for improving your mountain bike skills in a controlled environment.

The Central Maine chapter of the New England Mountain Bike Association (CeMeNEMBA) works with Waterville Parks & Recreation, Friends of Quarry Road, and other community partners to build bike trails, hold cycling events and provide opportunities to encourage mountain biking as a way to have fun being active for a lifetime.

The meadows and trails at Quarry Road are well laid out for cyclocross, and have served as the venue for Central Maine Cycling Club cyclocross races.
