Summary:
Once you get there go to the rock in the middle. There is a big downhill and a big rock you can jump off.

Recommended Route:
Although forestriver is closed, cross the marsh on the road and go to fall river. It is not great but better than nothing, plus there is usually no one there to bug you. It is like 100 yrds away.

Summary:
This is a descent place to ride but I really wouldnt bother going there if you dont live within a few miles. All of the good stuff is out on the marsh and large raised hill(you'll know). Dont bother with the wooded trails because they are all not maintained.

Recommended Route:
GO ANYWHERE, that is the great thing about the place, the trails are not all well defined and you can explore some. If your looking for some real tricky downhill sections you'll find a few there

Summary:
TRAILS CLOSED TO MT BIKERS PLEASE SEE ABOVE.

Recommended Route:
This trail along with the trail titled Salem State College is colsed to Mt Bikers. This includes the Salem Woods area. Also the MBTA Police are enforcing the railroad crossing along this trail with arrests due to the two Beverly train related deaths.They are out in plain clothes and maybe dressed like MT Bikers.

Summary:
CLOSED to mtn. biking as of 6/18/99 (or therabouts). The chairman of the conservation committee can't deal with the continued root exposure and erosion damage that was started by dirt bikes, and hasn't improved as mtn. bikes continue to travel over the problem areas. SHIT!!!

Recommended Route:
None
