Trail Description
About this trail
Park is split by a pond. On the east side some tough singletrack runs along the pond edge and fire roads are up a bit higher. On the west side there is more singletrack and some smoother trails. Pretty wet when I rode. There's a boardwalk near the pond but trails further away are a bit drier.

Review: I rode along the edge of the pond and it was pretty flat and pleasant, with some very rooty sections mixed in. It was a great workout and varied in terrain, but is best hit with full suspension I think

Review: I gave A.N. a 3 because of the muddy wet trails are flooded spring and early summer and as of this past summer many trails overgrown, thats said I went here several times and got a good feel for where to ride (last summers drought help alot). if you go in to the left before the pond and cross the power lines there are super fun areas of ledge not rocks, to ride on and across. It really can test your technical ability. 1st time there I hated it, but it has grown into one of my favorites as my riding improved.

Review: While not my favorite place to ride, Ames might be paradise for those who love rocks -- I mean there are a lot here! Boulders, gardens, you name it -- it feels like each trail was blazed so that it intersected every major boulder. I give 3 stars because it can be very technically challenging, but also slow, overgrown in parts, and lacks that "flow" that you might find at other trails.

Review: Easily the worst place to ride in Massachusetts! Swampy, overgrown, thorn filled, dump. I was so disappointed I jumped off my bike and walked back.

Review: Great ridding is to be had at Ames Nowell State Park. You can park on Lincoln St. or Chestnut St. to access the popular trails. Parking at Lincoln St. will get you access to most of the main trails and some pretty decent single track. You can ride 3-6 miles of single track without looping over previous trails. The Chestnut St. entrance will gain you access to the drier side of the park with lots of flowing single track. This side of the park has some nice rock faces and you can really pick up speed. South East MA NEMBA will be performing trail maintenance this year. We look forward to the improvements coming our way.

Review: Wicked wet today but this place might be ok when its drier. The trails to the Northwest seem to be forgotten and overgrown. Many spots need crossing due to nasty swamp water. No maps at the parking lot either so be prepared with your own map.

Review: Some fun singletrack. Nothing technical, but enough rocks and roots to keep you paying attention. Some nice boulder rides, may be some drops to explore if you are a freerider. Trails may improve with more riders as many trails were a little overgrown.
