Salem Woods Highland Park - TRAIL

Salem Woods Highland Park - Trail, Salem, Massachusetts

Single track. Wide variety of terrian on each trail. Small streams are crossed over 2X8 as bridges. A lot of steep but small hills. Suprising amount and variety of terrain. Numerous gnarly but short downhill/uphill sections. Technical and slow at times, tight but smooth at other times.

Really fun singletrack with a bunch of short steep climbs and decents. The trails also have a fair amount of rocky out croppings to test your skills. There are even a few nice roll offs and a couple of drops. The trail count isn't huge so it's not a place I'd drive over 35 minutes to get to. But if you're in the area it's definitley worth visiting. We rode there last week and had a blast!

Tons of small steep hills connected by various terrain. Some very technical downhill and uphill sections. Rocky and root filled trails in between hills. Rocks, roots, mud, steep decents and acents, cool 2 by 8 planks used to cross streams, the variety of terrain on each trail is what makes these trail great. Not as technical or as rocky as lynn but I think its funnier while still challenging. Not huge amount of trails but a suprising amount.
These trails are good for almost all levels of rider for the following reasons.
Beginner/intermediate- The technical sections can be frequent depending on trail but they are short, so they can be walked easily. Also there is a variety of technical terrain for varying ability so you can slowly build up your repertoire untill you can handle the tuf stuff. Also there are areas where the trail is bumpy but manageable even for a beginner if they take it slow.

more advanced riders will undoubtly find the numerous steep rocky sections challenging and the less technical sections are made challenging by burning through the tight bumpy single track.

Customer Service

Try them all. It is easy to find your way around the place, as all the trails interconnect and bottle neck back to the trailhead.
