Lots of stuff out there. The tan trail (on the map and marked on the trees) is some awesome flowing single track., bule trail is good single track mixed with fire-road esque stuff, and the red trail has some freeride stuff that scares me a bit. There features are pretty sweet and you never get too far away from the car.

there a couple different ways to get in, map shows one, and there are three more on blackstrap road near the happy cats sign, across from babridge road, and ~1.4 mile north of mountian road.

one of my new favorite places to ride

Summary:
These trails are mostly xc riding but have good sections of downhill in places if you're willing to climb for it. In addition to the trails being excellent for any type of riding there are multiple access points to the reserve.

Recommended Route:
The best place to enter the system that has good parking is on Hurricane road just over the turnpike if your coming from route 100, on your left. http://goo.gl/maps/UtwNM

Other recommended trails in the same area:
They're are also some good trails at the end of Hadlock road about 2 miles away, they're connected to the reserve and have a trail that goes across the entire town and hooks up with two other trail systems in Falmouth.

Summary:
Nice trail, multiple downhill stretches, and some good single track. It now connects to a trail on Haddlock road off route 100, which connects to miles of other trails.
If you look at the map in the link, there is a big ground bee nest at the base of a tree, where the red, white, and yellow trails connect.
To get to the trails over by route 100, you need to follow the snowmobile trails under the turnpike, and make an imediate right once your on the Eastern side.
Some of the trails are not yet finished, in this area, but will probably be finished soon.

Recommended Route:
Power lines on the Northern side of Mast road.

Summary:
Written in initial description. The trail map didn't post but you can see it in the link. Gives a little reverence for what tan, read, and blue, trail mean.

Recommended Route:
tan trail out to red
