Trail Description
About this trail
A varied amount of single and double track await you here, ranging from rooty and rocky to smooth and buff passages. Lots of small climbs and descents, though the trails aren't particularly marked. Across from Mill Street is an entrance leading to another 2-3 miles of singletrack, while going in deeper can connect you to the Western Greenway project.

Review: so I live like down the street from this place and if you head down to trapelo rd down a fire road and take a couple turns there are some preety sick trails with so advanced material.

Review: There are many different trails off of the main fire road. Then there is a little area with some dirt slopesyle jumps it's in pretty good conodition and I didn't encounter any people well in there.

Review: I'm a beginner, and I really love this place. Beautiful landscape, which can really be broken in to 3 separate parts. Prairie area, woods, and water tower. All 3 are fun in their own right. Lots of single track offshoots from a main fireroad. Old water tower in very cool. Always see deer when I go riding here. Great ride for a beginner!

Review: Trails are currently in great shape. My first time getting a full exploration of the place and was very impressed. Some great smooth singletrack and decent descents that require some technical skills. Loved the downhill flowing from the water tower.

Review: Someone's been building up some pretty stiff MTB jumps across from Metfern Cemetery - definitely made for air!

Review: Trails have been maintained and cleared well... much more than what I remembered, which is awesome!! The McLean side has been organized, but came across bike banned trails on that side. Found my way along the Western Greenway down to Trapelo Rd. which was a nice little ride.... looks like there is more to explore there! There was singletrack crossing the Western Greenway, so the possibility for some good miles seems to be available.

Review: Rock Meadow handled the winter very well - everything is clear and dry, albeit a few small muddy spots on some lower turns. Ride on!

Review: More new boardwalk construction from NEMBA leading towards Lot 1 is done, as well as new singletrack on the Rock Meadow side. There are talks about going in and blazing some of the trails for a more defined loop.

Review: Rock Meadow is staying pretty icy and snowy right now; get there before the sun and you can get in some fun winter riding, albeit there are a few stretches of long ice to battle with.

Review: NEMBA trail work has expanded this network quite a bit. If you ride through the fire roads and single track to the road connecting Pleasant Street and Trapelo, go behind the old Admin building and through the fence. Bear right by the markers in the neighborhood and into the woods -- from there, you can use the trails to get towards Lot 1 in Waltham now.
