Amazing trail. DO NOT mountain bike up Seven Bridges. You’ll end up carrying your bike to the top. However, the downhill does make it all worth it.

This loop takes you near the summits of three peaks in the area (Kineo Mountain, Mount Buckhorn, Mays Peak) so why not bag 'em? With over 2600 feet of elevation gain over 10+ miles, the route would be classified as moderate-to-difficult; however, the tread is good over the whole route--including the unmarked and uncharted routes to each summit. The steepest parts are the route to the saddle below Kineo and the last couple hundred yards to the top of Mays. 667 is a bit chewed up from motorcycles and the route from 665 up Mays is a bit washed out, but both are very manageable. My favorite part of this hike was from the saddle beneath Kineo's summit where the trees opened up to spectacular views. Unfortunately, none of my photographs from there turned out for some reason.
