Much of the trails in Maine are either lazy, grassy loops or more technical singletrack marred by rocks and roots, making it hard for most riders to advance their skills.

Chris Carleton, one of the co-owners of Maine Trail Builders or M.T.B., is working to change that, by introducing machine-built trails where rake-n-ride was the standard for years. By bringing other trail builders together to learn all about pitch, drainage, and berms, MTB is helping riders of all ages, from beginner to intermediate, find their flow and a love for the trail.

Through machine-built flow trails, more riders are finding their flow and fun on the trail.

  1. I love seeing communities come together to provide families a safe and fun way to enjoy the outdoors! I have always loved bicycling and am thrilled that it is becoming more and more popular. Keep up the great work!

  2. I live in Maine and it’s great to see it being highlighted on an official PI page. Shoutout to Chris for building and engineering those machine built trails.
