Summary:
This is a great place to learn or go a little extream.All types of riders can enjoy this place.There are atleast 2, 30 mph downhills and pleanty of sever uphills to test you stamina.there are atleast 20 miles to run around on -some fires roads. single and double track the famous rollercoaster ride and im sure there is stuff i missed. Oh yeah(ladies) if you have to go to the bathroom there are public restrooms. you can bring stuff to grill they have open grills and tables. the rangers are great and will help you when asked. everyone here likes bikers.

Recommended Route:
Take exit 6 of mass pike (I90) go right off the ramp and about 2 miles on your left is the main entrance. 5 buck to park or you can park in the back of Dr deegans and trail in from there.

Summary:
It kept me busy for years. Good for beginer, intermediate and experts (if you know where things are).

Recommended Route:
Park behind Degans and take trail out the back of the parking lot. Take a left when you hit the pavement then the first left again into the upper parking lots (wall street journal on your left). Go to last parking lot and drop in at either corner (the one next to the brown gate is the best one). Cross the dam and take the first left, you will hit pavement again but only for a couple of hundred feet, go through the next brown gate, go 1/4 mile and take a right, climb the rolar coaster trail (make a lot of noise so people coming down know you are there). At the top of the hill explore all of the loops and keep your eyes open for what you are missing. When you get sick of that go find the trail that takes you to the other side in the back of the paved bike path, it will have a motorcycle berm where you turn into it. Ride along the fence, see if you can big ring the whole section along the fence, go down the washed out hill where I tore my rotator cuff, take a left at the bottom. Follow that trail along the fence and for a mile of so till you get to the utility pole bridge. After you cross that bridge take an imediate right and there are two ways up the hill, a hard way and an easy way, you will see what I mean. When you hit the fire road take a right, you a couple of hundred yards and take the first right (or the second if you don't like the way it looks) (they both go to the same place). There are a few different ways back to your car, just take a right and you will get there eventually. Keep your eyes open in this area also, there is lots of stuff to find.

Summary:
After you go thru the parking lot take a left to the ethnic beach. Watch out for the midgets and the fishermen. Don't drink the water out of the pond, its high on the scat scale. Follow the paved road left or right. After you pedal up into the clouds look for the Blair Witch Project. You may find a strange man there named Fifty-Fifty or you may not. Get all twisted around and lost then find the road by accident. Watch out for the flaps falling off the C5's flying over. Look for the fenceline there is a good down hill there. Watch out for the guy tangled in the fence, I heard he used to race. Take a right at the bottom over the deisel river and you are on the way back the beach. Instead of going by the beach you could go by the ranger station. Remember only you can prevent forest fires. Ride behind a bunch of houses to the end to the Ewok Village. There are some nice technical downhills made better by flying paintballs. Proper eye protection cannot be stressed enough. At the bottom cross over the phone pole bridge. Only one at a time please. Now you will get a different view of the various air plane parts. Pedal pedal pedal! This will take you back around to the deisel river. Seriously though this place is a lot of fun there is a little bit of everything there. Good luck have fun and brush up on your Spanish skills.

Recommended Route:
Take the pike to exit 6,(make sure to use the Fast Lane) bang a right at Mr. Peanut. Go thru two lights and park behind Do-Do's. Make sure to turn the wheels and set the E brake so Jonny Law can't tow you. Find the trail behind the trash heap. You will see the road to the park. Make sure you wave to the park ranger and tell him that you just saved 5 bucks.

Summary:
this park is good for a quick ride. an hour 1/2
tops but there are many more trails to explore.
i way i described is the way we always go we do it in about 45 minutes.
love the rollercoaster trail its short but its fast and runs along a ravine so it gives you an extra umphh.

Recommended Route:
from parking lot go through that little picnic area
past the gazebo thing hit that trail. then take yoru first trail going right its a uphill. at the top of that turn left go all the way tpo the gate at the end of the trail. turn left there onto that downhill.ride ride ride . youll come to a fire rode follow that untill you see your first left take that youll end up at a tream ride throught and go uphill from there. you should see westover air reserve base. this traill goes on for awhile.then youll go through another little stream then when you see a huge uphill on yoru rigth take it. its a tough ride up but youll be ok. from there ride along the fence youll go up[hill then down and end up on a paved road. from there take a right on the rode till you see yoru first trail on the left. its about a quarter of a mile up. take it thats the snake trail. youll end up back on the road if you follow that wihtout veering off it . once back on the road take a left keep riding the road untill you see a trail on the right with a yellow arrow on the pavement.it looks like the trail disapeers downhill. take this trail it the rollercoaster ride this one fast its a ruch just make a lot of noise in case someones coming up it. this trail is short but it sweet and gets yoru adrenaline pumping. remeber you have to ride it fast. at the bottom take a left your back on the road at the spillway you can go uphill and explore more trails or take a right and go back to yoru car
