Summary:
Lots of new trails. All singletrack and some are advanced. They can be tough to find. Park on the dead end off of Townline Rd on the Burlington/Wilmington line.

Summary:
Great place for the weekends. I can bike to it from my house in 3 minutes, so i don't need a ride. There's some great stuff if you bike away from the water and powerlines. While there are some good trails under the powerlines, there are some awesome singletrack trails further in that are new this year. The only problem is that no trail is marked very well (I have still yet to figure out what the difference is between the yellow and blue paint). If you explore and try to find new trails, you will be rewarded with some really long and good singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Get away from the water and the powerlines, and take any singletrack trail you can find.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Closest one I know is Great Brooks Farm in Carlisle (it's a state park)

Reviewed by: Phil , from Stamford, CT

Summary:
The trails vary from dry dust/sand in the poer lines to wet mud around the lake. Not many trees or man made obstacles, very natural, if you like the stuff. Mostly intermediate trails, some hard stuff if you look for it, try the norther trails and the sides of the power lines. I go up once a year for business and ride in the evenings, you have the trail to your self and the mosquitos are all yours too.

Recommended Route:
The trail on the edge of the water is great...one wrong bump and splash!!! Lots of roots, rocks and mud. Power lines will give you some great hill climbing.

Summary:
Just moving out from the flatlands of northern Illinois, this was my first jaunt in Mass. While I was temp. living in Woburn, this was a great afterwork hammering. Some awesome rocky climbs and descents along the powerlines. If you're close by, check it out. The trails aren't very long, but a great place to brush up on some technical skills. Also some good root riding in the woods south of the pond. No one seems to ride out here.. it's a little gem.

Recommended Route:
Take a lap around the reservoir as a warmup, hit the powerlines!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lynn Woods, Middlesex Fells, Horn Pond
