Great Hill - Trail, Acton, Massachusetts

Great Hill - Trail, Acton, Massachusetts

DESCRIPTION

All trails can be described as singletrack. The trails are quite technical due to an incredibly huge amount of rocks and roots. Just hard enough to be technically challenging, with just enough momentum to keep the heart rate up. Two streams are crossed by means of rock bridges and I would say about six good downhills/uphills. Ride the loop and other trails in different directions for a differnent kind of experience. It is definetly a hidden gem.

I ride this trail all the time. It is very rocky, but 90% of it can be ridden by a good intermediate rider, but its definitely not for beginners. The yellow trail is a large 2 mile oval and is very well marked. 80% of it is very rocky with a couple of short sections that are quite difficult. Several of the rock sections are thick with football size rocks that are not too difficult to ride over and around, but are relentless. It also has a very steep hill. There are 4 stream crossing all of which can be ridden, but 2 require advanced skills. The trails that cut across the yellow trail oval are also worthwhile, and are just as rocky with a significant hill. I've ridden in a lot of mountain bike races and this course would be considered very difficult.

If your a beginner and want to experiewnce what "advanced means on the trails do this one. With all the rocks roots and constant hills we had to walk a lot of it. We really only knew of this place because we hiked it before but never biked it ustill now. Well it was an interesting day (8-5-04). So if you don't feel like falling down or walking most of the time then if your a beginner don't come here it is ment for pretty advanced riders. Although it looks funif I were advanced it is a nightmare for beginners.

Look I live in this area and its just fine. Lots of trails with a lot of variation with some easy flat ones around the base of the hill and some hard ones going up and down the slopes. While it is littered with rocks, good suspension and a good bike can get you up and adrenaline and a gravity can get u down the slopes fast enough to get a major rush. If you're going down the slopes just be sure that you're quik on your feet so that you don't land up becomeing a permanant tree hugger. Great all around place with some rocks and other debris that can be frustrating. But without a challenge, where else would the thrill be?

Some nice trails all around, a good entrance is behind the fire station on school street, behind the sports fields.

Great hill is littered with rocks. Most too big to ride over. Instead stay on Route 27 (not 20) north until you cross route 2.

Just after the bridge, hang a left down into the woods. There is a right of way for a natural gas pipeline that runs parallel to Rte 2. Keep going about 2 miles and you will see a gate. This will lead you into the Acton town forest. Very good riding. Not a lot of rocks or stumps, but very tight singletrack with steep ups and downs.
