Trail Description
About this trail
F. Gilbert Hills SP, also known as Foxboro, is a state park with a plethora of trail conditions, singletrack, and fire roads. Conditions stay relatively dry even during rainy times, and the singletrack is rolling and relatively clear. A hardtail is more than ample to ride on, though a hybrid could make it through. What makes the park so great is the ability to shift up and tear through some outstanding singletrack with great scenery. Please beware hunters during the season!

Review: Taking the gravel fire road up and then zooming down the yellow trail is a super fun loop and isn't to demanding on the climb due to the wide fire road. Just be careful for horse riders and hikers because they are everywhere !

Review: I have been looking for other trails in Massachusetts to ride beside the usual near me. So I ventured south to Foxboro to F. Gilbert. It was easy enough to locate but was less of a State Park than I am used to. No real facilities that I noticed. At least there was

Review: To ride somewhere different I drove south from Worcester to Foxboro to F. Gilbert. It was easy to locate but was less than the usual State Park I have seen. At least it was free. Luckily I found another Mtn biker who knew the trails and he showed me around. Good trails, roots and rock as on most New England terrain, If in the area again I will certainly drop by.

Review: This place had everything. Easy to pop on and off a more challenging trail, find a trail with some speed, climb a short hill to find some technicals, or coast out and chill on a fireroad. Lots of rocks but only rarely tightly packed and some trails very rooty (esp. by the lake) but only a few true technical rock gardens. I was able to find some great trails to get some speed - though a decent travel suspension recommended. Much preferred this to my first trip to Vietnam in Milford (but clearly picked the harder sections unknowingly there). I'll be back to F. Gilbert very soon! Total blast.

Review: F. Gilbert is mostly all technical single track throughout. Many many rock gardens and rooty sections. There are fireroads as well and Moto trails but the fire roads are pretty torn up w loose rocky sections. I don't know who wrote the review but I don't think a hybrid would fair well here. This is a technical x-country series of trails suitable for a hardtail , x-country full suspension, or trail bike.

Review: Hated it! It was all loose rocks and gravel. I guess it's not just this park, but pretty much everything in this area is like that because of the terrain. Moving here from Ontario, Canada - where there are epic trails - I'm thinking of giving up on mountain biking and starting road biking.

Review: Headed out DT from Headqrts. parking lot. Explored red ,green, blue trails found some nice singletrak off the DT very rideable here. Made my way on grn trail to the Moto trails for a short loop great fun at first with tech DH and climbs. Then got lost for 1 1/2 hrs on yellow Moto trail. Very tough sections with not much flow for pedal pwr. Ton of rock gardens . Had no idea where I was going. No one else in sight , finally found some distant hikers that lead me to blue trail DT then it was all good again. You really need local knowledge for the Moto sections. I'm an advanced rider former XC racer and was quite challenged . Cheers, ps get a map and hook up with a local and you'll have more fun.

Review: Fun trails.. Lots of options.. some challenging technical climbs and descents - a few fun rock features.. hills are short, but plenty (some are steep) Once i learn the trails better , I should be able to string together a nice 15 mile mix of tech, flow, hammer and hero...
