Summary:
This park provides a good mix of terrain. It lacks any major elevation changes aside for one 0.3mi climb but the trail blazers have made the most of what nature has to offer. The north side of the park is mostly flat rooty single track and smooth rolling double track. The south side contains very technical slow rolling terrain to keep the expert riders entertained. Man made bridges help the riders over large rock outcroppings and provide a few downhill-style aerial jumps.

Red Dot / Development Trail (single track) - Beginner/Intermediate terrain aside from a few tricky roots. A good warmup.

Barbwire Trail (single track) - Intermediate terrain. Rocks, roots and obstacles with minimal climbing. Excellent Flow! Must ride!

Yudicky Farm Trail (double track) - more fun north bound with some woopty-doos.

Swamp Loop (single/double track) - fast flat sandy single track with flowing curves.

Yellow Dot Trail (single track) - Flat beginner terrain with lots and lots of roots.

Twisted Sister (single track) - Advanced/Intermediate technical terrain with a few fun log crossings. Short quick climbs will test your slow speed balance.

Spaghetti Bowl aka Fireball - Expert terrain with tons of rocks to hop over and bridges to help you. Riders can go around most of the obstacles for a more advanced/intermediate ride. Short quick climbs and tight radius turns. This area is the highlight for most advanced/intermediate visitors. Be sure to bring a camera to capture your friend's follies.

Recommended Route:
Start with Red Dot into Development. Use the paved sidewalk to make it over to Barbwire. After Barbwire follow Yudicky Farm Trail to the Yellow Dot Trail. Make your way over to the south side of the park and ride Twisted Sister and Spaghetti Bowl. Ride time at an intermediate pace with minimal stopping is 1hr 45 minutes.

Summary:
Nice trail system. Some new trail added to the development trail in 2011. The ride with the development trail and barbwire trail is nice with a decent flow. Cross the road and there are two more loops called fireball and twisted sister. These are both fun loops but very tight and twisty. Not a lot of big hills up or down, but not flat either, just lots of small ups and down.

Recommended Route:
Park behind the ballfield and ride past the gate. Take the first trail on right and over little bridge. Keep strait onto development trail. At the end, turn left on paved sidewalk, past development entrance to kiosk and re-enter park. Quick right at fork and quick right onto trail and then quick left onto Barbwire trail. Follow Barbwire to end (cross over double track a couple times) Then you have to follow double track back past swamp. When you hit the paved road in the park, go left towards the development and the yellow trail goes off on the right. Follow that yellow trail all the way until it hits the street. Cross the street is a trailhead that you follow up to a closed paved road, Cross that road and ride up the hill and you will see a fork at the top of the hill. There you get to the twisted sister and fireball loops. Hopefully there is a trail map posted there. Fireball is the better of the two loops.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lowell/Drackut and Landlocked in Burlington, MA.

Summary:
I want to second the Barbwire trail reccommendation-I finally rode it today and it was a blast! Several ramps, a few bridges, lots of log crossings, rocks, roots, but best of all, a nice flow to the whole thing. The Development trail from the parking lot is pretty good, too. Map at:
http://www.gonashua.com/gis_maps/Southwest%20Park%20Trail%20Map.pdf


Recommended Route:
Yellow trail from the parking lot, to the intersection of the red trail and development trail, right on the development trail to the paved bike path, left on the paved path past the entrance to the houses brings you to a kiosk with a trail map. Go left past the kiosk, bear right on the doubletrack, then first right (only a couple hundred feet) and first left onto the signed singletrack. The trail will cross the doubletrack twice, just stay on the singletrack. This route is much less confusing than entering from the other side with all the atv trails. I took the Yudicky farm trail back to the kiosk and rode the Development trail backwards to finish-about 5 1/2 miles total.

Tucker Brook in Milford

Summary:
Decent amount of singletrack considering the trails are within Nashua city limits. The Spaghetti bowl is highly recommended, as others have indicated below, but what is missing in the other reviews is any mention of the excellent Barbwire.

Recommended Route:
To get to Barbwire from the ball fields, start off on the Yellow trail whose trailhead is across the raod from center field of the fenced-in ball field (as mentioned below the trailhead is a bit overgrown and you won't see the narrow trial until you're right next to it). The Yellow trail will intersect with the Red trail ~.3-.4 mile in - continue straight on the Yellow trail. The Yellow trail will then intersect a paved access road. This is only ~.2 mile from the Red trail.

The Yellow trail continues on the opposite side of the road, about 50 feet to the left of where you came out on the road. Stay to the right until you come out onto the fireroad. Go right on the fireroad, and then take a quick left onto a doubletrack. This will take you thru a couple of fields. Stay to the left, and the trail will take you around a swamp/pond. You will hit a 'T' intersection about .5 mile from the last road crossing.

Go left at the 'T' intersection after the swamp, and then a quick right. Stay left at the next fork, and this brings you into a field. Stay right, and take a right turn into the woods. About 50' into the woods you will see the entrance to Barbwire on the right.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mine Falls is good when ou want to air it out and ride really fast, smooth stuff. It's not a big trail system, there is very little technical terrain, and lots of pedestrian traffic, but it can be a fun way to kill an hour or two.

For more adventure head op to FOMBA, or, if you don't mind a longer drive, Bear Brook is hands down the best trail system in southern NH.

Summary:
Started out from the ball field side. there is a small, overgrown trail head across the access road from the parking lot (easy to miss do not go past the gate) follow the yellow trail for a mile of so until it intersects the red trail. If you go right on the red trail it leads back to the main road with some nice single track. If you go left on the red trail it will bring you back to the access road, just past the gate. I don't suggest the trails across the access road as they are weak and mostly double track. and the moto track is a big old sand pit. (easy to get lost past that point, lots of intersecting double track) but I'm sure you can connect to mine falls if you knew where to go. Don't know about continuing on the yellow trail, didn't get back there but it's probably worth a go.

to get to the spaghetti bowl follow the access road from the parking lot almost to the main road and take the double track to your left. follow it till it crosses the main road and through the jersey barriers. follow this paved path past the pond and look for a trail head on the right. this trail goes up a small climb and then splits. take the left hand loop first and follow it clockwise. then go back to the split and do the other side. this route is either a loop or it follows the ponds edge. which has the bigger ladders, but is sometimes blocked off by active beavers...

Recommended Route:
all in all this trail system is short and fragmented.. the bowl trails are sweet (tight and twisty) and the stunts are top notch but it needs more mileage to make it worth a weekend ride...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dracut/lowell & massabesic & russell mill

you might have liked it better if you had hit all the trails, you completely missed the whole barbwire section, most of the development trails and who knows what else. the whole system is approx. 11 miles

here is a great map:

http://www.gonashua.com/gis_maps/Southwest%20Park%20Trail%20Map.pdf

the spaghetti bowl is across Dunstable Road and down Old Ridge Road (road is closed so look for the barriers)
