Summary:
The best riding in Mass. SO there is a new parking area. If you take 495 South to ROute 85 take a left. About a mile down on the right is a new parking area that connects to a long paved multi-use trail. Just outside the lot take the dirt access road on the left to the end and then another left. You will go up a steep incline that will lead you right to the new Nemba trail.

Recommended Route:
New Nemba Trail is great. Just go explore. Once you get to the Whale Rock head back towards 85 on the 495 Trail towards the awesomeness around the Nemba area. Plan on no less than 10 miles. there is a great map here: http://www.bikerag.com/images/MAPS/ma-vietnam_map.htm

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Fells, Lowell Dracut, Wompy.

Summary:
this is my home trail and i ride there almost every day. after riding in every state in new england i still look forwards to riding here again. it has every thing i could ever want to do, from big hucks to long xc rides. if you are thinking about making a trip here i strongly suggest it, you will have no trouble finding some one to show you around or finding something you will love on your own.

Recommended Route:
just get lost and ride, tag along with a group, or email me and ill show you around.

Summary:
This trail is great the downhill sections are very fast and there are a lot of rocks so it hops you up and down but if you have a bike that you know how to use with some good shocks it is good and fun. One thing to tell you is that the more frequent riders that I talk to have gone thru multiple bikes because of trees jumps and rocks. do not let that discourage you thou it is a great ride oh yeah wear pants or else your legs will be bleeding from the low branches whipping you as you go down. the starting hill sucks thou

Recommended Route:
go to 128 Cedar St, Milford, MA which is a Wendy's and go into the parking lot next to it and take the trail that can be accessed if you go to the tree line and follow that and get onto the bike trail and go right and cross the highway so that you go under the two bridges and then follow the dirt trail along the highway and cross the highway when you line up with the steel gate on the other side of the Highway and go up and follow the trail up until you get to the Milford bike kiosk.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the Milford bike trail it is a great warm down trail after Vietnam and there are a couple of good side trails and jumps on the sides.

Summary:
Lots of trails. The entrance is a PITA to find the first time if you're just going in on your own. Dirty little secret and TNT have some of the coolest built stunts I've seen in person. They are not that hard, and well built, so IMHO they aren't that hard to ride, most of the rock jumps are built like a snowpark tabletop, you can jump if you go fast enough, or just roll it if jumping seems too sketchy (I know I roll most of em). The drops have nice landings built up. I agree that lining the trail with rocks seems a bit extreme, but I also see no other way of keeping this a singletrack without them, the trail braiding and ridearounds would just take over everything. I noticed every local I saw had knee/shin guards on.

For those of you who are thinking, OK this place is not for me, keep in mind that the two trails mentioned above are probably about a mile out of 20-30 miles of trails. Most of the northern trails are doubletrack, and the rest of the southern web of trails is typical NE singletrack, as in rocky, rooty, sometimes swampy technical stuff.

The power lines are full of fun rocks to roll, and the 495 trail has some great technical stuff, some hike-a bike not so fun stuff, I try to find my way in at the top, but sometimes get mixed up and have to hike.

Overall a great place to ride with lots of variety and more stunts and drops than the average riding spot. Access is a PITA, especially at first, but once you figure it out it's not so bad and definitely worth the small hassle.

Recommended Route:
Here is a link to the Nemba map. Think about joining.

Summary:
I started rinding this trail about 7 years ago. It was always overgrown, but fun abd technical. Since all the fires and the great job by NEMBA in purchasing the land.

This trail system is probably the best I have ridden in a long time, since coming back from Arizona riding Mormon/National trail on South Mountain.

There are some really tough sections in the area, some are ridable after a few runs and some are far more difficult. The previous reviewer complained about markings and wanting to build up the trail over the sharp rocks. Screw that!! ride thru it. I hate it when people want to make trail easier. If you can't ride thru it try again. if not walk it and figure it out next time.

This trail system is awesome. Sure I can't ride everything but I make new sections every time I ride there. Can't wait to ride this at night!!

Recommended Route:
Ride down rt. 85 abd hook up with the fire road right after the guard rails. Ride the FR fro about 200 yards and take a right. Then just ride take what ever turn you want. at some point you'll make it to the power lines. Just ride!!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Fells - just started riding it this year. great ride.
Foxboro State Forest - Rocky but lots of fun!!

Dear Weekend Warrior,
I am a 52 y.o. intermediate-skill-level, conservation-minded trail rider on a full suspension bike with eight years experience. OK you young bucks; this is for you ... I can think of nothing more fulfilling than an all-out ride on my mountain bike and have always worked hard to be better at it. I also love the land. And to you, Weekend Warrior; I totally agree with your perspective ... screw building up anything ... I say ride it as it is or go somewhere else ... or try another trail ... or keep working at the tough spots without doing anything to make them easier ... what; or aren't you young bucks tough enough for this sport? ... don't selfishly go ruining the challenging sections or natural beauty of a place for other riders for your own narrow-minded view of how YOU think things should be ... this is meant to be a sport out in the great outdors; natural and only marred by a simple trail (which you are very lucky to have in the first place!) ... not a place to be developed ... save and protect what you have for the future ... eventually it may be all you have ... consider yourself fortunate to be benefiting from the fore-sightedness of those who came before you and worked hard to set this land aside for our sport! ... someday it's natural beauty could be destroyed altogether by those who somehow think they have been given the right to deface what isn't theirs in the first place ... it belongs to everybody; not a select self-empowered few! Act like responsible, intelligent adults; not undisciplined, unrestrained teenagers on an adolescent free-for-all! Anyone who has the intelligence to take a longer view of things please join us in protecting what we have before it is too late!!!
Weekend Warrior ... I stand with you! Sincerely, Reg Leg p.s. how about it out there ... any feelings about what I've offered?
