Mountain Biking Fox Run

***   Add a review
#153 of 221 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#9,844 in the world

Locally know as Fox Run
If you park near the power lines you'll be close to some single and double track through the woods if you (facing pwr lines) go right and cross over the road towards the left side of the pond. This trail will lead you back towards Auburn and is about 8 miles to some fun pits with steep hills about 25/30 in length with all sorts of smaller trails throughout the area..(be careful crossing Rt 20)
Taking a left from the pwr lines down the wide dirt road will lead to the gate, where if you look left you can ride some rooted and pine needle covered trails as well as some muddy and gravely sections.. or continue past the gate on the wide road to another gate (near the gravel pit) and continue on some double track to
Hodges Village Dam (approx 6 miles) nice easy ride
And as another option try the power line trails... sure to give you a good workout...
Growing up on these trails I've found many good rides and trails the will go on forever... Have fun exploring and I wouldn't worry about getting lost, there's usually a road within 2/3 miles on any trail (but it's also not a distraction)

    I thought these were bicycle trails, but found dirt bikers there. The trails were badly chewed up by the motorized riders and not to my liking on my hard tail. I do not begrudge these trails to the dirt bikers, just that it was not so described initially. I eventually found the Dam farther into Oxford and rode there.

    If i'm not mistaken this is the trail that starts by that power station near the Hodges Village Dam motorcycle parking lot. The trail starts off Clara Barton Rd, goes about at least a mile, then the first road crossing is Rt. 56 then crosses Turner Rd, and passes behind Cumberland farms. I rode this trail once but never crossed the first road because i was on dirt bike and too much traffic. The trail was mostly easy with some whoops, a few spots with tree roots/ rocks/ water/ and fallen trees. I think the Rt. 20 road crossing behind Cumberland farms is blocked by a metal traffic barrier, which shouldn't be a problem for mountain bikes.
