After leaving Bethel and heading west, the ride then turns south to enter the White Mountain National Forest. A long, gradual climb on freshly tarred road, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains, takes us to the top of Evans Notch. After summiting, we descend into Chatham, New Hampshire, where we cross the Saco River back into Maine at Stow, and ride into Fryeburg. The ride continues northeast through Lovell and into Sweden to Keyes Pond for our night at Camp Tapawingo.
**Note** - BikeMaine 2015 riders spent the fifth night at Camp Tapawingo in Sweden. Since the camp will not be available to riders looking to recreate the route, we suggest that riders end that day in Bethel or Bridgton.
