Summary:
These trails are exeptional!They offers everything that you would like. Climbs, downhills,jumps,views,etc,etc. All levels are welcomed too, I started as a beginner, and after 2 years of riding this park with hundreds of crashes and falls I could say that I am a decent rider now. So if you like MTB I definitely recomend this park!

Millbury, by the power lines!

Summary:
I actually ride these trails 2-3 times per week. Absolutly love riding here. I have been mountain biking since 1990 and spent 8 years as a local downhill racer mostly in expert class. I have seen lots of trails. Pisgah is one hell of a workout. Rocky, technical, nice natural features built in the trails. Everytime you blast downhill you get to climb back up, usually a technical climb that just works you whole body. Good use of the land by the trail builders, not like Rayburn and Singletary where you contantly turning and getting dizzy. Don't get me wrong I like those plces, but Pisgah rocks literally! Oh yeah, there is also a link to another 5 miles close by that is flowy and fast. Talk with other riders on the trail and in the lot, the locals will share the goods!

Recommended Route:
Take a map, and explore! Many sweet trails not on the map. Be friendly to others and respect the trails!



Comments
I've talked with town engineer of Northborough. We both agree that the trail committee is a bit over active. I've been cycling on mount Pisgah since 1991. It has changed drastically. The most recent trail that Charlie cut, in my opinion, is just evidence that they're running out of places to cut new trails. Some one cuts a trail, the atv riders find it, they use the trails during the wet seasons when others are not. Things change.

Summary:
The network of trails again has shrunk. Tracks of land are still being lost to development. This place is getting more vietnam everyday. The trails wind around in circles. I guess it's nice, but not as nice at it was 15 years ago. Trails are being cut everywhere. How much is enough?

Recommended Route:
Make your own route.

Summary:
A little over 3 miles of new single-track trails have built on the Northboro side of the conversation land. New updated maps are now in the kiosks. Check em out. Built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. The new trails incorporate fun technical features, with switch back climbs and some fun descents, and it's all single track. If you haven't been in a while you owe it to yourself to check it out. When you incorporate the new trails with the existing stuff you can easily hit 15+ miles of lung busting trails.

This place rocks! It has a little of everything including some secret black diamond trails. If you like to climb and descend, you will love the hills here. The new single track trails on the Northboro side are fun with many technical features. All are cleanable if your on your game. Great place for a 1.5-2 hr workout/fun ride. The views are nice as well. Trails are well marked and in great shape. Hope they build more!

Summary:
Been riding here for 3 years now. Some of the vets I've met on the trails still show me new stuff to this day. I love this place. First, because it is close. Second, it is a quick, lung bursting workout (read-climbing). Third, it is as challenging as you want to make it.
I like to start in the lower turnoff parking lot on Lynden St. There is only enough room for 2-3 cars here (vs 5-10 cars at the true TH on Greeen Street). I like to start here so I get all the climbing in at first and then I can downhill back to my truck for a cool down.
Recommended areas are: super technical singletrack around the lower pond which you can preceed with a fun switchback run from the top (I think it is the Green trail), the downhill from the Eastern most scenic viewpoint and various stretches of singletrack in the park.
Watch out for horsecrap in the western part (and they think cyclists are bad), and the mosquitos were out in force last night.
Ride on

Recommended Route:
Lower parking lot on Lynden St. Climb steep incline to right after bolders at TH. Turn to right after first V in path and left at the next V.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Stow Town Forest, Nam, Calihan, etc.
