Mountain Biking Beaver Pond

****   Add a review
#79 of 218 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts

You could ride here, but really would you want to? Trails are pure moto, in some places the ruts go down a few feet. Very loose, sandy dirt. Due to that, little traction on the short steep hills going up or down. Where trees fall across the trail they just ride around making new trail haphazardly. Only reason I checked it out was that you can see part of the sandy trail from 495 N and every day on my drive home I'd look at it and wonder. Well, now I know. Yes you can ride here but there's much better riding in the area

Getting there
From 495, take Exit 17 to Franklin. Go east off the highway, past the plaze with Stop and Shop, etc. Continue until you hit Beaver St. Turn right, paved parking is a little ways down on the left.

    If your gonna mountain bike. I suggest Franklin State Forest, very close from here. In fact you can directly get to Franklin State Forest from here via the road. Or ride south on the trail that goes along the pond(may be muddy since its close to water) until you reach the train tracks. Take a right, go under both highway bridges. Take another right onto powerline trail(s). There will be 2 road crossings. Until you reach the YMCA where Franklin state forest is. Being that i also dirt bike, it suits me better than most people. Although im not sure if its even legal.
