This Forest, 20 miles north of Boston, has some really incredible mountain bike trails within its boundaries. There are a variety of trails from roads to paths to single track covering over 35 miles. Use the included map to guide you on a loop around the circumference of the main trails which passes by several bodies of water where you can also watch for birds. There are plenty of trails that twist in and out of the track, too many to make turn for turn directions. Use the track and your phone to guide your trail choices depending on if you are hiking or biking.

no signs to guide you but all tracks leads to trails and to roads. i paid too much attention to if i was following the planned route but i gave up. I couldn't get lost in the wilderness.

It was ok for me, not great. Lots of in and out short trails that all lead back to the main road. A good place for a walk with a dog- not so exciting by yourself! At least the ice had almost entirely melted.

Just time for a short loop with our dog. A little icy in spots. Only saw 3 bikers.
