Summary:
First time out to Vietnam, entered through College Rock/Rocky Woods. This place is fun, with some excellent technical riding. Some (alright, alot, especially by the power lines) of the riding was over my head so expect some hike-a-bike. I came in from the south on the 'don't ask don't tell' trail which had some really fun switchbacks. Also lots of fun were the 'slickrock'-type areas where you get to fight gravity riding up a rock face. I'll be back to check out anything I missed.

A review above mentioned Maprika - download it! It makes the ride so much more fun when you don't need to think about staying on the right trail. Just reference the greater Vietnam area map on your phone (cell signal is good throughout) and plot your next route once you're good and lost.

Recommended Route:
All 3 areas (Vietnam/College Rock/Rocky Woods) have their good points. Just don't spook the horses on the small private section called Beaver Brook.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
College Rock, Rocky Woods

Summary:
I ride here about once a week. This place is great, there is something here for everyone. There are jump lines that are well maintained and groomed, technical riding, and if you find you way to the back on this near Holliston, there some nice smooth single track. I love riding here so much because it suits me for whatever riding I feel like I want to do.

Summary:
This is a great network of trails. I don't jump much or get too crazy and I love it out here. For those looking to not get lost, there's a map for it on Maprika. Once you get the app and download the map you can always find yourself as your phone shows will show you where you are anywhere you are on the map. This has kept me from getting lost more than once and is great when you come up on the multitude of trail junctions and want to know where you are.

Recommended Route:
Everywhere!

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.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
maybe collage rock but i dont think that counts because it connects
