Hey Six Rivers community! It's that time of year again when we share the woods with active hunters.
The Maine 2019 hunting season dates are:
Extended Bow Hunting Season: September 7th to December 14th
Youth Firearm Day: October 26th
Firearm Season: November 4th - November 30th
Muzzle Loader Season:December 2nd - December 14th
Hunting is permitted on a bunch of our Bath trails (even the Whiskeag), so it's important to follow these guidelines:
Wear blaze orange all fall.
Consider riding during the night with lights. Hunting is prohibited after sunset.
Be courteous to hunters you encounter while out on the trails.
Riding at dawn during hunting season is a terrible idea.
Obey all specific closures (e.g. the Mitchell parcel/Deliverance Trail).
The only riding area we cover that does not have any hunting is Neptune Woods, in Brunswick, so go ride there during hunting season!
