Tucker Brook Town Forest

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

About seven miles of trails, 80% singletrack. A misture of rolling terrain, with a few climbs and descents of about 100' vertical to keep you working. Some very nice, legal single track has been added in the last few years. A map which shows most, but not all of the trails can be found at http://www.conservation.milfordnh.info/TuckerBrookTown.pdf
Park under the power lines, the trail starts right beside the road. I reccommend a mostly counter-clockwise loop if you are looking at the map.

Summary:
The Milford Conservation Commission has updated the map-I couldn't figure out how to edit the original info, so here's the new link: http://conservation.milfordnh.info/pdf_docs/trail_maps/map_trail_Tucker2pgs.pdf
I just rode these trails again after a couple of years-forgot how good they are. The newer trails add a lot of nice, well done,fairly technical singletrack to the older atv width doubletrack, and for me, it's a workout, and I never make all the sections without dabs. Note that at the bottom of Jimmy's Trail, if you go out to Whitten Rd and jog right, you can connect to Tucker Brook North, and then to the Gnomes trail network, which starts at the end of the Herron Pond School rd, which adds another 4-5 miles of flatter, less tchnical but fun, built for bikes trails.

Recommended Route:
Start at the power lines on Savage road, follow the trail across Tucker Brook, turn right on the fairly tech Lower Path(6)(Map number)until it intersects with the Ridge Trail(1), go right on Ridge until the Brook Trail(8), go right on Brook, loops back to Ridge, go left on Ridge and either stay on it (which actually requires a 90 degree left turn a little ways past the junction of Lower Path)all the way to Sidewinder(5) for a log ramp and steep climb, or go straight on the Forest Trail(7) for a longer up and down trail with a few bridges. Then go right on Sidewinder(5), fast twisty downhill, and back to the start. Then go up the powerlines to the top of the hill, and right onto Jimmy's(3). At the bottom either connect to Tucker Brook North or climb back to the start via The Falls Loop(4). That's it!

Update spring 2011-a section of the trail that connects Tucker Brook North to the Gnomes has been posted No Trespassing-someone purchased land, built a house and posted the trail. There is a rumor that the situation is going to be worked out, but at the moment, the trail is closed. Didn't want to send someone on a dead-end ride.

Summary:
This a decent little set of trails, but not worth coming a long distance for. My 10 year old son and I rode all the trails except one or two side trails in under 2 hours, including a lunch break. There is some good variety and some fairly technical stuff, so what there is is definitely a fun ride. There's just not that much of it. Good if you are in the area or looking for a quick ride.
