Summary:
I live in Hopedale and come here every other week or so. I just found the single track which I ride a few miles to. If you are driving, park on Freedom Street. From the bridge, park at the first or second gate. You can ride your bike up the hill to Overdale Drive (zoom in the map) There is another trail down over there. Its easier to ride your bike up the road and singletrack it down. Overall the Single track is fun and hard, easy to get lost if you don't know the park lands but if you come out at the lake, just follow the trail back to your car, piece of cake. Lots of blowdowns which are annoying. Planning on clearing these sometime soon. I will repost an update.

Recommended Route:
Nice place to bring a beginner or even kids if you stay on the gravel trail and off the single track.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Goat Hill and Vietnam. Also Upton St. Park and Whitehall

Summary:
just bought an Ibex 450 this trail is great for starting out I have been down there 3 times now and it has been a great place to learn and get some practice in. Not to mention quick trip out don't need to pack a lot.

Recommended Route:
go on 140 towards upton from milford take a left at hazel street and there is a good entrance there. follow it to the left (counter clockwise around the lake) take a right on a less developed path that will bring you up to the train tracks keep following white markings on trees all the way up past the train tracks and it will bring you to the power lines and that is a great run down.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
have not tried any yet but looking forward to trying a lot of them.

Summary:
If you just ride the dirt path around the park it isnt that dope of a ride. Hidden single track and downhill run off the power lines.

Recommended Route:
go in by the park where the beach house is. So you will be ridding the trail in a counterclockwise route. Go around on the main dirt path. Once you hit a bridge that goes to the other side of the pond there will be a trail to the right. This is the entrance to the hidden single track. At the end of this single track you will come to trail. If you take a right out of this single track you will see a fork in the trail that leeds to the right or left. If you take the left that is the downhill run. If you go to the right you will just hit the traint tracks. Take the left for the downhill run. You will have to walk up. I dont feel like telling you the road way to the top.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Vietnam, Kingom trails (car+ 4 hour ride+ bike= worth it)

Summary:
this is an easy and quick trail, but it is fun and picturesque. there are little off-shoots that can be challenging but nothing major. this is a beginner to intermeadiate trail.

Recommended Route:
There are three entrances to these trails. (1) off of rt 140 about a mile before the dairy queen, you will see a little gift shop and the trail begins down the road behind it. (2) across the street from the Hopedale town park near the pond. (3) on the otherside of the pond, if you cross the bridge near the factory and take yor second right, you will see an entrance on the right hand side of the road.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
milford - vietnam near 495 and 85; uxbridge - west hill dam off of hartford ave.
