Burrage Pond State Park - Trail, Hanson, Massachusetts

DESCRIPTION

This is a new state park opened up in 2002. The trails are fairly flat, nothing technical. It's only worth going to if you live in the area. The views are nice though.

Found this local area looking for a place to take some late afternoon rides in the fall. The trails are mainly fire roads but some nice single track and the views are great. In the course of our two hour ride we saw hawks, wild turkey, turtles and a spectacular swan. The mile long dike is tricky with thick growth and a deep rut that you ride in on the left or right side. It is so deep that your pedals will hit and cause some interesting recoveries. Be careful at the chain link fence that marks the end of that section when leaving from Elm Street. A deep hole sits in the middle of the opening.

The area is not accurately mapped and requires some exploring to get through. The parking lot off Hawks Ave. is good size (8+ cars). The parking lot can be found by following the Lightcontrol Company fence to the left. The parking area off Elm Street is much smaller.

Hopefully the Town of Hanson Trail Committee will get involved in getting a better map and marking the trails.

Lots of big open fireroads. Having once been the worlds largest cranberry bog, this is probably one of the most open areas of gravel and fireroads in New England. There are wooded sections whose trails are also fairly level. Being large, open and flat makes it easy to build up speed and get a good off road workout.

Customer Service

Ride down the main road until you get to the strip dividing the two ponds. Ride over this strip to get to more trails in the forest.
