Pennacook Area Community Trails (PACT) is an Inland Woods + Trails project to develop a network of high-quality single-track mountain bike trails through many private and town-owned parcels in the River Valley area of Rumford Maine. In fall of 2019, the first half mile of the trail “Take Off” was built with a trailhead located at the Mountain Valley High School. In fall 2021, a large bridge was constructed along with an additional quarter of a mile to connect segments of trails and prep for a longer build in 2022. In summer 2022, an additional 2-4 miles are slated to be built.
The Connection: Connecting the Rumford and River Valley community to fun, high-quality recreation opportunities such as mountain biking is part of IWT’s goal of providing recreation as a tourism opportunity for communities.
