Summary:
All of this is some pretty sweet singletrack. Be careful of walkers around corners though, there's not many, but there are blind corners. The hills are pretty lame for the most part. Its beginning to get overgrown though as of 08/25/03. I recommend only going here in spring before the leaves and bushes come out. But fall riding here is the best once all that brush dies out!

Recommended Route:
Exit 45 off of 93 (River Road) Head towards Tewksbury/Andover. Take right after 2nd entrance to industrial park, a dead end road. Take the trail away from the highway with river to your right. Good 2 miles before the power lines come up on you. I've never gone past that point. I usually exit the trail and take the road back.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Harold Parker, Charles Ward, Dracut/Lowell State Forest

Summary:
sweet fast singletrack - lots of short steep sections and plenty of screaming fast downhills along the South bank of the Merrimck River between Lowell and Rt 93.

Recommended Route:
Start at the pumping station, up to the 93 bridge and back. Or... park at the Wyndham hotel off the 93 River Rd exit and go from there (trail runs off into the bushes from the back of the parking lot)
