There are MANY trails of varying types.They are not kept up to pristine condition,but I myself try to get out there and at least clear out the unpassable deadfalls.There is some very long and challenging climbs out here and you'll definately feel it at the end of this ride.The previous reviewers are probably not aware of all the inter-twining trails,but it's well worth riding.Hope this helps get more riders out there to keep those trails clear.Oh,and by the way....there IS more than what you see on the TOPO.

For a good GPS 18 mile loop,go to "teambums.com",click on "ride maps" on the home page,then select "brimfield"..you should be able to print out this map.The little 'balloon string' at the left side of the map is only the lead from a private home we started at,so just ride the loop itself.

Typical NE terrain - singletrack is technical, rocky and rooted with some tricky uphill/downhill sections. Definitely intermediate to advanced terrain. Several fire roads to keep the beginner happy and I ride my cross bike on those, as well as a couple of the milder singletracks. If you are in the area, it is worth a ride.

Enter the park from Route 20 through Dearth Hill Road (just west of Downtown Brimfield). Park near the pond and ride up the fire road near the Ranger Station. You can get a map at the Ranger Station but it doesn't show much of the singletrack. The singletrack trails branch off many of the fireroads so keep your eyes peeled for it. You can get lost, and you can interconnect with the Conant Brook Dam trail network in Monson, MA to create a pretty long ride. Several lean to's and cobbled roads built by CCC groups in the 30's add to the charm of this place. There is also a Boys/Girls Scout Camp up at Woodman Pond. If you plan to go contact me and I will get you more trail info.

This is a great trail area !!!! The trails are pretty intense downhills. The uphills are long and knee busting but worth the effort for the downhill on the side. The trails are very long.

This place is great for beginners and advanced riders alike. There are no excessively long climbs but there are a lot of short steep ascents. Some downhills are fun and technical, but nothing too difficult. This place is ideal for the beginner who thinks he/she is good enough for some moderately difficult terrain.

Customer Service

Take Route 20 and turn onto Dirth Hill Rd.

This is a place you take your kids for a nature hike. I was bored to tears on my bike. The guys who rated this gave it way too many tire treads which sparked my curiosity in the first place. Luckily I am close by and it did not waste much of my time. So if you live far away, do not make the trek.

Customer Service

Well, this place sucks but if you do decide to go do not follow the directions given mtbr or whom ever gave above. They are wrong. Check with a local bike shop.

1) Follow the signs from route 20 for the SF & Dean Pond Rd. There's a couple small places to park on the left. There's a bunch of trails here, but they aren't that good. Steep climbs, not very exciting downhills.
2) From rt 20, take a right onto dearth hill. Up at the top of the hill is a park station. I guess all the "good" trails are supposed to be up there, but I didn't find much. There's a lot of "no trespassing" areas that I didn't investigate.

All in all, wasn't worth the drive down from Worcester, wasn't worth the derailler hanger I bent on on one of the many sticks littering the trails. Sections of this place look like the forest is dying with all the downed trees.

Indeed there are trails here, but I cant recomend traveling too far to ride here.. Some semi technical stuff some climbs, nothing exciting.. Feels like you have done twice the vertical when your done..
