Hale Reservation

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Hale has a lot of good trails with varied terrain (single/double track/ flats, steep short/long hills... the works). They are not named but some are marked. It is part of the Trustees of Reservations area which includes Noanet Woods in Dover and Caryle Park in Needham. Together they are one big contigous biking area. I do Hale mostly and they are very bike friendly. They also allow off-leash dogs thoughs so stay alert. Free parking. There is an offroad sprint distance triathlon there every September with a 6 mile mtn bike leg.

Summary:
Hale is meant to be ridden hard and fast while enjoying the surroundings. The technical and difficult biking are in very small sections. You can combine any of the trails for a solid 15 mile or hour plus ride. On rare occasion, you'll see hikers- even less bikers. Great for single speed and night riding. Hale could be a solid mountain bike place with a pump track, jump trail and free riding to go along with their trails. It's great for locals looking to go out and get a quick ride.

Recommended Route:
I would recommened the yellow to Noanet park to yellow again to blue to red to green trail loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wompatuck, Veitnam or Harold

Summary:
it simply has everything.it requires a free pass avaliable at the front officebut it is better than going to noanet and pay for one when you can get a pass to both at hale for free. and just ride it is fast not too technical but it will get a days worth of good riding.

Recommended Route:
any route start at hal and ride to noanet and find your way back.
