Ridge Hill Reserve

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

Opened to the public in 2005, Ridge hill has about five miles of marked singletrack abutting Copicut Reservoir and Fall River Water supply land.

Ridge Hill is off the MTB radar so to speak. The trails are well marked and quiet. The red trail is flatter and a bit swampy. The blue and green trails wind up and around the hill and are more technical. There are some unmarked trails along the reservoir, and there is the pipeline road that lead north around the reservoir and links up to trails leading into Freetown and the wildlife management trails to the west of Copicut reservoir.

Summary:
These trails are good for a quick ride if you're in the area. The blue and green trails are a blast to ride and are quite technical and hilly. Unfortunately they're not long enough. Copicut Woods is right on the other side of the reservoir, but the dam/causeway is off limits. You can also ride around the north side of the res, but currently the only way I can find is by riding the pipeline road, which frankly sucks. Riding to the north does bring you to some trails which access the main part of Freetown SF, so there is epic mileage accessible to the north.

I wouldn't recommend trespassing on the dam, because of the rabid nature of Fall Rivers watershed "police" (they will call the real cops on you and press charges), but damn it would make a sweet loop to ride all the way around the res.

Recommended Route:
Ride all the trails, then ride the blue and green ones backwards. The orange trail is fun too, but way too short.
