Summary:
Overall, a pretty fun XC spot. There's not a ton of terrain but you can get a good 2 hours out of it by backtracking and diving into the red and blue loops. The yellow loop runs around the perimeter of the whole area. It comes VERY close to route 3, a major highway and there's actually a cool lookout point you can stop and take a break. There's some plastic chairs out there too.

Landlocked Forest is very similar to the Fells, with not as much elevation gain. Rooty, rocky, some drops, some tech, some buff. There are some climbs/descents but they are quick, and the majority of the ride is twisty singletrack. I thought it was a great spot to practice my turning technique, as the trail can get pretty tight at times and requires constant vigilance over your weighting and body position.

Recommended Route:
Only been here once, looped around the yellow trail clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Middlesex Fells, Willowdale

Summary:
Easy enough for a beginner to build skills with challenging spots for the intermediate and advanced. Lots of rocks and roots (welcome to New England). There were some man made plank bridges and downed logs that were either cut away or ramped over. Definitely some cool rock features for the more advanced riders to hit.

I hate that Route 3 is so close, but that's the downside of a trail so close to Boston.

Recommended Route:
I mostly took the yellow loop. There is some climbs and downhills along the red into a bit of a valley. The climb/downhill there has some tight switchbacks that were very tough.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Beaver Brook North

Summary:
The yellow loop in the landlock forest is 4.2 miles and packs a good punch. There is fast single track, challenging obstacles and some climbs that will really get your blood flowing. It's not too far from the minuteman bike path and I'd say it's the best place to bike that's within biking distance of the minuteman. Go down Hartwell Ave., then make a left on Bedford St. (Rt. 4). Then take your next right on Winter St. Winter St. turns into Skyview Dr. Then make a left on Rangeway, and a then a right on Volunteer Way. Make a right on Grove St., and there's an entrance into the trails on your left. (just before McKeeve Dr.) Keep heading into the woods and you'll eventually hit the yellow trail. There are trails that dissect the loop that you can take to make things a little more interesting.

Recommended Route:
Yellow Loop
