Trail Description
About this trail
Great trails back there, apparently hand made by some guy, took like 4 years. Some sick single track, nice jumps, big drops, fun stuff to play on everywhere. Highly recommended, it was a blast. There's a good map posted here: map.7.31.09.pdf

Review: Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video from Landlocked Forest in Burlington, MA. Land Locked Forest is one of my favorite local places to mountain bike when I just want to blast some XC trails and get the legs pumping. This trails system is located about about 30 minutes outside of Boston and is pretty small containing around 10-12 miles of trails. The trails are pretty compact and weave in and out, but you can find some great flow, jumps, and features throughout. If you do visit, make sure that you have your phone with a map, because it can get a bit confusing some some places and you will end up going in circles. I post new videos from different spots in the Northeast every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more! Link:

Review: Rode for the first time with my 11-year-old son who is a novice (~10 rides). There were a few parts that he (and I) had to get off and walk, but 95% of this was great for us although it was definitely the edge of my son's ability to ride this. The trail markings are the best so we did a lot of wandering around and guessing. You can't get lost though so that's good.

Review: Fun little trail network. Some technical, but mostly fast and flowy. Only real complaint is the interstate nearby is a constant reminder that you're not as secluded as you would like.

Review: I live about 4 miles from here but never got around to riding Landlocked Forest until today. I had fun but feel that if I had a little idea about the trails I could have ridden through faster and had a lot more fine. I got there around 11 am and it was deserted which was nice. Around noon time traffic started to pick up with people getting a ride in during lunch, but still not too busy. There are some technical sections and some fast flowy sections. Overall I found it a nice change to my go to trail, Fellsway.

Review: I haven't been to LLF in awhile, and the new bridge work is great! Trails are in stellar shape, and they're obviously getting more use and TLC. I was very bummed to see that the wood lattice in the top pictures I posted years ago has since fallen into disrepair due to damage; that was an awesome feature. LLF is still a great use of space in an area that doesn't have enough riding around it - spoke to a few neighborhood folk while getting ready who were all quite nice.

Review: Having worked in the area for 15 years, I rode this these trails for the first time yesterday. I am impressed with the amount of single track and size of the open space. I am only bummed I didn't discover this sooner. Whomever put together the new bridges and cut the trails, nice job.
I am looking forward to exploring this network further.

Review: Rode these trails today. Took me a while to find the good stuff---which is kind of hard to find. It was fun, nothing really impressive if you're looking for lengthy-flow, but for around here, it was better than I'd expected. Some of the swamp / creek crossings are rotted into collapse, but others are nearly new. I couldn't find the wood lattice on the picture above...? Had fun anyhow. Truth to tell I'm used to MTB out west..CO, UT, CA, everything out here on the east coast is kind of mediocre to me...and a lot if it is just plain boring, but I guess that's because I'm somewhat spoiled. Even so, if you're looking to sneak a ride in close by to's worth it. I suggest you look on the trail map at the parking area so that you can quickly find the RED trail area...if you're looking for a bit of 'knarl' and 'chunk'. If you're able to find the good-area higher up and way inward to the left of the parking area, you'll have some fun. I originally gave it a 3, but having put in some exploration time over the past three days or riding, I upgraded my rating to a 4. For around is definitely deserves four stars.

Review: I started riding this trail in @ 1988 or so - happened to own a home in Bedford that backed up to the woods there - and did a huge amount of night riding back there 10-15 years ago. The deer herd would come to my apple trees - probably 20 strong. I would guess they still live back there. Recently went back and was impressed to see that a lot of trail building had been done over the last decade. Lots of nice single track - and it leads all the way over to rt 62 now - altho a lot of rt 3 traffic noise is present - still - having 250 acres of land to ride on within pedaling distance is great.
