Mountain Biking Cutler Park

****   Add a review
#34 of 218 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#2654 in the world

Cutler Park is a maze of trails around some pristine marshlands. The trails are mostly singletrack with a few planked areas to go over the wetlands. As you enter the trails from the parking lot, keep going right and it will bring you out into the main trail network. Just keep exploring and you will find some great fast loops. Everytime I go I find more trails.

    Most of this trail is pretty fun and there are menu drops and roots all over the place however when this trail is muddy it should not be ridden. Unless you want to get splattered with mud. This is a pretty technical trail so I would not recommend it to beginner riders.

    Reviews are pretty accurate. Trail not marked very clearly. Tons of loose dogs. Trail us definitely not a beginner trail. Blue Heron Trail has a lot of root areas, tons of drops and inclines several trails with significant drops off the side. Nice technical riding - beginners can get off bike and walk across anything too technical. About 4.5 miles to tunnel at other end of park. Suggest you turn back the way you came when you get there otherwise it's very confusing. Look for blue diamond shaped trail markers. Not always readily seen.
    Enjoyable ride but be clear it's not all beginning - video posted is only a tiny portion of it.

    This is as scary as it looks !

    I'm giving this a 4 because it really is a great easy to moderate ride that's close to the city. I was able to get a nice 10 mile out and back.

    Just rode this trail for the first time. What a blast, I did the whole loop which is a little over ten miles. Pretty smooth flows trails with some rocks and roots here and there. Hit up the pump track for a little bit of extra fun. There is about 1 1/2 miles of pretty busy road that you have to ride on. Overall it's a great spot for a beginner such as myself.

    I followed the Blueheron loop starting at the south parking lot. It was well marked until it's time to turn back south and the trail put you on a lot of roads. Next time I go I'm going to avoid the eastern section.

    Good flow of smooth trails with some berms, no drops or jumps. There is a beat up pump track that would be sweet if fixed up. Fun almost effortless ride there are many sections that flow nicely with high speed s turns... nice leisurely ride with good scenery.

    took my 4 year old here on his trek mountain train. He loved it except for a small section with lots of roots. The trails are clean and well marked. Was a fun day out as a family!

    Blowdowns are cleared - mid-July and the trails are very buff, fast, and ready. Some of the boardwalks have been fixed up a bit, but there are still 1-2 really muddy passages. Fun as usual.

    A couple of really big trees are down on the clockwise entrance of the fireroad loop that need some crews to remove. Plummer's Island also has a blowdown you need to crawl under, but otherwise, the usual wet spots and fast riding!

    Fun ride out and back. Cutler is a mix of fireroads and singletrack that bring you through a gentle up and down singletrack that you can really fly on (as long as you dont run into dogs or hikers). Versatile enough to keep myself entertained bombing around at speed and not too technical that the GF couldn't keep up. The marsh bridge had some flooded sections and could probably use a repair in an area or two. after the tunnel you have some narow reeded paths that abruptly end unless you want to link through millenium park across the RR tracks or doubleback on the road. best to just turn it around at this point in my opinion.

    Prime fast fall riding here right now. The wet spots you expect to be wet are wet, but everything else is firm-packed, bone dry, and lightly covered in dry leaves. Riding on 11/11 was immaculate and ripping!

    Had a blast here, was great for my SS 29er.
    Be careful of people walking on the singetrack and dogs.

    Great training or after work ride. Also good for clearing out the cobwebs.

    The trail is riding nice and fast with the ground freeze - no muddy spots, pump track has firmed up (although someone built a fire pit in the track...)

    Rode the blue heron whole loop once. Got some fun parts but the first half is the best. Random lil pump track several miles in was a nice suprise. Also explored singletrack along highway. Some real nice sections, swoopy and tight. A few drops and along the highway a couple sharp hills but nothing technical. A few nice natural drops and some cool boardwalk riding. Definitely recommend it.

    New boardwalks are great. This time headed right out of the parking lot and was happily surprised at the trails... very rooty (almost mini logs!!) and you get some up and downs as you hug the highway as you go - keep your speed up as with every down there is an up, and sometimes they come at you around a blind corner... fun fun fun. Made it back around the Blue Heron... found trails to make the road ridding much less after Millennium Park (ride the parking lots of the businesses on your left as you come out on to the street - the path will re-enter the forest eventually.) Pump track was a bit sandy - might be fun to hit after some damper weather.
