Registration has opened for the third annual Maine Woods Rambler, an off-road adventure ride scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 24 in Millinocket.

Co-hosted by Katahdin Area Trails, the Rambler will take place at the New England Outdoor Center, 30 Twin Pines Road, and feature three marked and supported routes open exclusively for this event.

Proceeds will benefit Katahdin Area Trails and its mission to build sustainable, purpose-built, non-motorized trails in Maine’s Katahdin Region, according to a news release from the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.

Riders can choose between three routes: a 50-kilometer challenge, a 100-kilometer haul, or the newly added 20-kilometer Intro to Rambling route, designed for riders with less off-road riding experience.

The longer rides are recommended for seasoned riders, as both routes will have challenging climbs and fast descents, along with vistas of the surrounding lakes, rivers, and peaks. The shorter route has been designed with less experienced adventurers in mind.

Katahdin Area Trails, in collaboration with the community of Millinocket’s Trails End Festival, will host a variety of events for people of all ages throughout the weekend, including trail tours, free clinics, games and live music. For more details, visit
