I live 1/2 mile from the YMCA entrance and I just got my bike into these woods. There are some nice singletrack parts off the beaten path and some really hardcore spots. On more then on occasion I have had to carry my bike down cliffs, but I do always look for the hardest way around.

Customer Service

in the trail across from the Y, take the first singletack off the path (it veers right) and just then chose your direction.

My fiance and I go after work. It's a perfect short loop - FAST too! Tight single track, short climbs and decents, some roots and rocks, bridges to catch a little air. My only complaint. . .too many walkers, but they don't have a problem with riders, so just be aware that they are around (otherwise they may start to get cranky).

Customer Service

Bang a left at the bottom of the paved road - there's only one way to go, really.

Like I alread said, there are some good hills here for fun technical climbs and decents. I'd rate it good for beginer and intermed riders. It's small (can do it all in ~2hours or less) but it's worth the fun of exploring and is really convient if you work in that area. Watch out for tourists around the pond when it's nice on the weekends.

Customer Service

I'd park behind the YMCA and ride in across the street at the power lines or aside the house with the access road. Keep going on the gravel road to hit Horn Pond. Bear right for some moderate up and down, little bit of rock. Bear left and end up for some better height, extra credit if you find the sand slide. Beyond the pond to the right is a big hill, near the step down station, which is a good intermed. challenge up or down.

Around the pond there is a paved road with a number of little singletrack sections. The singletrack is a bit of fun but all the thrills are really short. The only semi-"extreme" is riding down Horn Pond Mountain (which really isn't a mountain). There are almost always a lot of people on the paved road but hardly any on the trails. I wouldn't recommend riding on a weekend. There are way too many people then. Overall the riding is good for a beginner looking to ride semi-challenging trails that aren't too long and have many places top get out. Advanced riders will be bored. There are too many people.

Customer Service

Go to the main entrance on Pond St off of Route 3 then ride clockwise (I prefer).

Great trails, the flet ones were a blast, but the hills were a little rocky. I could probably do those
downhills if I had better brakes. The paved trail that
the dirt ones turn off form are good for children.
Lots of people walk there, so share the trails.

excellent scenery and places to sit and eat.

Customer Service

Starting from the parking lot at the Waterworks bldg. Start going on paved trail pass the (wood carved Indian)then see a small parking lot (no longer in use) and there across from that is an enterance to a trail, you'll see a little crate looking bridge and stay on the trail and try bearing to the left and as you ascend and there are some pretty good trails that aren't filled with many people at all.

very nice trail, two nice man-made bridges at the start (i haven't ridden the crazy one off the rock cliff...) and then nice downhill single track. technical with some obstacles, my only gripe is that it's to short. Good for intermediate

Customer Service

turn into the parking lot from the main street, walk over towards the power lines facility and there's a big dirt road, head to the left and walk to the top of the paved road, head to the right and there's a little trailhead on your left. continue down the trail, i find that i always end up coming out in some lady's backyard...
