The best four season riding around. Varying trail conditions based on weather. A great place to ride during/after a big rain storm. Lots of rolling hills. It is approx. 2.5 sq. miles with approx. 10-15 miles of trails.

Trail Directions
From 128, take exit 17 towards Endicott College. About 1-1.5 miles take a right onto Greenwood Ave. Follow to the end until you come to the gate. Try not to block the gate or park in front of houses. If four or more cars there, park at the Bev. Farms train station and ride your bike there(0.5 mile). Neighbors are cool so don't piss them off.

Summary:
I rode this for the 1st time yesterday and it was pretty amazing. A lot of fun, steep ups and fast downs, there are many, many technical trails. You could get lost back there for hours.

Recommended Route:
Park at the entrance on Greenwood, do not block gate, ride about 30 yards and look for a trail head on the right, after the McMansion, then follow the orange route to the red.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Gordon, Manchester.

Summary:
These trails have it all. Fast and technical downhills, drops ranging anywhere from 3 to six feet, tough uphills, and tight single track. You will never find too many people as not many people know about it. Simply stated, a jewell. Anyone from beginners to the more advanced are sure to enjoy their time here.

Recommended Route:
enter via the green gate at the end of greenwood avenue. Trails aplenty!!

Summary:
Most of the trails are skinny, techicnal, and a lot of fun. There are 3 really good trails here, but, I'm very bad at giving directions, so I won't even start. This place is awesome. You will see people on 6 inch bikes who do some of the 3-6 feet drops. Then, a lot of the time I see people on rigids, XC hardtails, and 3inch bikes. So, yes, anyone can ride these trails, some are more difficult than others. Meet someone who rides here a lot and your a good friend with. I go to a MTB camp in Beverly in the summer and we ride here about 2 times a week. But in the spring+fall, I do not ride here at all.

Recommended Route:
Sorry, I'm bad with this sort of thing.

Reviewed by: Jim P. , from Beverly

Summary:
If you park at the top of Greenwood Ave off Common Lane, ride down the trail until you hit the other green gate (Webster Street?). Before you hit the other green gate, (within 20 yds) you'll see a small little trail to your left. Take it as it looks like your heading into someones backyard. Go up and up to the right. Holy technical!!! Single track all the way out to Rt. 128. Thick forest and pine everywhere. It will eventually hit a fire road. This place is a secret on the Norht Shore and is not traveled much. As for the rest of this area, you can stick to the main fire roads like Wood and Boulder Lanes for some easy riding. The fire roads are not too technical and either run out to another residential road or out to Rt. 128.
You'll be thanking me!
Jim

Recommended Route:
Park at Greenwood Ave off of Common Lane. Head on into the woods. Fire Roads are easy. Read below for a great trail.
