Description

Clifford Park in Biddeford is a spider web of very twisty, rocky and rooty singletrack for mountain bikers or hikers. For bikers, this group of trails will challenge your technical skills. The trails are marked, but not universally well marked. Starting from the trailhead by the tennis courts, continue along the wide path approximately 250 yards to a sweeping left marked by black blazes to the first trail intersection and the entire network. Generally speaking, the outer loop is more level and wide and well suited for casual walking and riding, while the internal network is more challenging. A scenic waterfall is located just outside the park grounds along the east side near Parkside Drive (just off the red trail). The Community Bicycle Center is located at 44 Granite Street along the west side.

Other Information

Park hours are dawn to dusk.

This is a nice wide spread out park. All sorts of trails types from a perimeter trail to interior trials with some vertical rise (my watch barometer told me about a 75 foot rise). Off Granite street (western side of park) are some kool old granite quarries. On the eastern side of the park are trails along 'West Brook' with a water fall that is similar to Cascade Falls in Saco or Jewell Falls in Portland. Currently a trail map can be found here https://www.biddefordmaine.org/DocumentCenter/View/4953/Clifford-Park-Trail-Map

I walked the black trail and followed the story as I went. My 1st time @ Clifford Park for hiking. For a lifetime Biddeford resident I was pleasantly surprised by all the trails. Intend to walk all the trails in the future.

It was our first time hiking this trail system two weeks ago. Took the black trail to the red trail so we could see the falls and gorge. Loved this area! Couldn't believe that no one else was nearby until we got back on the black trail. Nice park in Biddeford worth visiting with the family!
