Summary:
Lots of interesting singletracks the locals have brushed out a number of old trails and now there's enough mileage here for a full day's ride.

Recommended Route:
Cross the dam and take a hard left after the big rock. You'll find a maze of interesting singletracks starting there.

Looking for a ride for your kids? Stay on the main roads.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wompatuck State Park, Holbrook Town Forest

Summary:
good all round riding, lots of rocks, some puddles here and there and a few short technical trails and long trails that are easy to miss, (keep your eyes poen for people walking and BRING BUG SPRAY YOU WILL NEED IT !!!!!)

Recommended Route:
don't just stick on the main paths, cross the dam and once you get to the Y in the path after the big boulder stay to the left, ride it untill you see a gate leading out to the powerlines (verry sandy so walking your bike is recomended) once in the power lines head right go to the top of the hill and look to your left their's about 5 - 6 more miles of trails out there, it is still part of the park but verry few people know about it,

Other recommended trails in the same area:
ames, wampatuck, blue hills, miles standish,

Summary:
great ride... brutal in the winter, due to martian outcroppings of mismatched rock fields. great lake to ride around, One third the way in on a single track there is a massive rock that is bar none the best pond jumping area around nasty!!!! peer around corners as there tend to be a few stragglers here and there

Recommended Route:
ALL

Summary:
Definitely worth the trip for the 'joy' of technical ride. Some single track - one can go as fast as 18mph and blast thorough minor swampy and stream crossings. I've taken east single track on the east part of the lake - a kingdom or roots and rocks. Very technical, ripped my elbow. Can't gain speed to zoom through this. Uphill climbs on roots and 3 -4 inch dense rocks. Defintely good worked. Went under the power lines but saw motor bikes and returned. If you live close this is definiely worth checking out. I wish I've had this instead of Naked Man.

Recommended Route:
get to the main entrance

Summary:
I've been riding Ames Nowell State Park since '97! Great Ride in a short time. Too bad they built a new dam and made the crossing easier. Good amount of rocks
