Mostly a bike trail. I just go here because it’s a few minutes from my house but don’t go out of your way to come here. Lots of roots and rocky, can get pretty muddy.

Too rocky, you constantly watching your step.

Very rocky and rooty because of all the bike traffic. I'd say it's a bike trail, not a hiking trail.

We loved these trails! Only problem is the marker colors are worn quite a bit, but with just 3 tiny wrong turns, we clocked in 4 miles! So fun!!

Excellent circuit of narrow trails. Lots of bikers left when we arrived and didn’t see anyone else in there until we got to the parking lot. Beautiful snowy day

It's not that big, but it's one of my favorite places to ride. There are a few awesome windy, flowy singletrack trails of decent length, some great climbs and descents, a fun pump track, and you can go after dark up until 8pm I believe. It's also not a bad place for a short hike and snowshoeing, which I was doing there last week. Oh, did I say it was small? Well, it's pretty much connected (very short ride through a residential neighborhood to get there) to another small town forest that has some really fun short and windy singletracks...from there, it's a short 1/4 mile ride to Billerica State Forest which has some more really fun, windy and flowy singletrack loops of decent length...and it's short and easy access from Russell Mill to Great Brook Farm State Park which I've read also has great singletrack MTB trails (I've only hiked there). Russell Mill might not be huge, but combined with the other trail networks I've mentioned, you could easily get an incredibly fun and challenging 15-20 mile, and probably longer, ride that didn't cover too much trail more than once. For all of those reasons, Russell Mill is easily 5 stars in my book.

Pretty lake view, more bike friendly than hiker but bikers are respectful
