Wompatuck State Park

Average Rating:    (4.43 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 7

Not too difficult, some technical sections. Nice wooded area, VERY clearly marked trails, and very hard to get lost. Lots of fire roads provide an easy way back if you do get turned around. There are also campsites you can use to make it into a nice weekend. Very close to boston (~30min) make it a great day trip too. Nothing really advanced, but a great mix of easy to intermediate trail riding. Very fun. Great place to take someone to introduce them to mountain biking.

Summary:
Thank God for Wompatuck. I've of late been in a depression brought on by New England's lack of fast tight trails until I've met Wompatuck. It likely saved my crumbling mental status and made my recent $3600 purchase worth it. The trails, ridden once and for 4 euphoric hours, are typically either fast, tight and straight, or twisty and technical, but enough to make things interesting without being jarring. In other words, perfect for me. For those looking for a nice long aerobic workout with use of the barends, I would look elsewhere, but give Wompy a chance. The ups and down are pretty much relegated to about 50 feet. The one exception I encountered was Prospect Hill, and even that is like a lesser hill in Blue Hills. I found a couple nice manicured drops and a "Jumping Line" that I'll likely never find again in Wompy's vastness. In terms of fauna and flora, I didn't see much.

Recommended Route:
The trails termed NW were all very nice, and shooting right down to the S trails to Prospect Hill were fast, a little wet, and grand. All other trails were great, but to a lesser extent. I think the drops and jumps were more or less around the S to W parts, though I wish I knew where specifically.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None. Blue Hills is stupid except if you have levitational powers and lungs of Lance Armstrong. And oh, if you enjoy not reaping the benefits of an uphill climb by crashing downhill for 30 seconds. Borderland, terrible. Foxboro-ruined by motorcycles. Leominster was awesome however. Look for my review there soon, if I haven't depressed you too much. And oh, Vietnam of course.

Summary:
Great single track .. a bit wet in the spring...
Make sure you grab a map~~ at the Rangers Station or in any of the kiosks that you will see at any of the trial heads.
Lots of parking and a busy place!
Make sure you climb Prospect Hill.. there are 3 routes down.. The two trails at the top near the bench to the right will get your pulse up!
Lots of roots and rocks ...just a fun place to ride. Well suited for group rides.
The park trails are well marked with numbers.. not names .. and the map is new and up to date. The park is clean and well maintained due to the awesome work of Ranger Stever Gammon.

Recommended Route:
Take Route 3 to 228 Hingham . South Shore in Ma.
Follow the signs to Womputuck State Park.
Good places to eat in the area after a ride.
Try the Liberty Grill located in histoic Hingham Harbor.. Great bar pizza!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Whitney Thayer in Cohasset on Route 3a
You can actually get there riding through Womputuck... better know as Wompy by the frequent users.

Summary:
Something for all except the extreme freerider or downhiller-and even they can have a good time. My friend brings his Big Hit here on occasion. There is a playground with some steep drops that's mildly hidden. It's not far from the main road closer to HQThere's too much to cover in one day. Lots of fast and technical riding. Well marked too-if you have a map. I love this place. I ride here until the snow is too deep.

Recommended Route:
Explore.

Reviewed by: Ade , from Hingham, MA

Summary:
well marked, great woodsy scenery with ponds, paved trails, sleazy rock gardens, some big drops, brutal single track, and some man-made jibbin' stashes (for you to find).

Recommended Route:
if your in south weymouth, jackson square area, go straight past all the intersections (going towards hingham), keep strait past the CVS on the left, and don't turn for a few miles until the wompatuck sign on the right.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
there is tons of single track in Hingham, but its kinda hidden. Try behind plymouth river school, Cranberry Pond, and Moore Brewer. Many are actually connected...be creative.
