Mountain Biking Brake Hill (West Newbury / Groveland)

#223 of 223 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts

Nothing completely crazy here.  There are a few man made features, and its some of the smoothest single track around (mostly hard dirt with very few rock gardens).  There is parking at the bottom of the access road to the water tower that is on the top of the hill.  Ride up the road a few hundred yards and then there is a trail entrance on the left that you can follow or continue a bit and there is another trail head on the right.

There is many various loops and ways to go.  Nothing is technically very difficult, but it can be somewhat of a fun place to just bomb down some of the hills.  Blue trail that ends at "brake hill terrace" looks like at one point there where some jumps.  Its a fun run down but you have to double back to get on the main trail system again.


There were other drops built out of wood, but I forget which trail those were on.  This place doesn't get ridden much, and its a fun place to night ride as well.


I wouldn't go out of your way to check this place out but if you are in the area or better yet you are introducing someone into mountain biking this would be an excellent trail system.  Its not intimidating at all, but has some decent flow / features where someone more experienced could have a bit of fun as well.
