Back Country Excursions founder Cliff Krolick set up his mountain-biking base camp in 1991. Since, he has designed a mountain biking adventure off the beaten trail in a quiet area of the White Mt. Foothills, where he and his staff greatly enjoy working with all levels of mountain bikers. The 30 miles of trails, accessible with one-day or annual passes, traverse terrain suitable for both novice and advanced riders, from a gently rolling single track to fun but challenging descent peppered with slaloms and tree spring noose traps set by territorial squirrels. Cliff and his experienced crew of savvy mountain bikers guide and teach multi-day mountain biking tours through the wilderness with comfort of their mountain lodge or screened-in backcountry yurt. To ensure that the environment stays pristine for future generations, Cliff donates a portion of annual profits to a variety of local environmental causes.
Most people don't dabble in extreme sports, and for good reason. They're extreme—one false move in, say, rock climbing, and you could fall off a cliff or kiss a boulder you only like as a friend. Summit Adventures makes extreme sports more approachable, though, with simulators that keep all the fun, but lessen the risks. Here, rock-climbing involves full safety harnesses and a 30-foot indoor wall, archery means shooting targets with foam-tipped arrows, and stunt driving becomes safe and easy, thanks to well-designed bumper cars. Even walking on water has a place here: kids, enclosed in giant transparent hamster balls, can run on the surface of an indoor pool.
Customers choose their own adventures when renting a kayak from Sebago Trails Paddling Co. Father-and-daughter team Bill and Katelyn Allen use more than 30 years of business, kayaking, and local knowledge to suggest more than 30 adventures within 12 miles of the kayak rental site. Life-jacket-adorned paddlers explore a historic hand-operated lock from the 1830s, venture through the historic ruins of Gambo Mills, or head to one of the various beaches as their colorful kayak glides through the water, slicing the gentle waves with its bright red nose.
