Down hill single track and wide open family trails great place to ride main loop around lake about 5 miles. More singletrack recently added. With more to come. Can combine with Millvale Resevoir.

    Great ride if you do it counter clockwise. Includes some minor hills so good to do some time sprints. Some of the wooden bridges are really slippery when wet. Do three laps and you'll get decent workout.

    Nice mix of windy singletrack and some old carriage roads surrounding Haverhill's main water reservoir. The singletrack is a mostly smooth and flowy with some roots and small rocks. There are a couple of small stone walls but they are easily cleared by even novice riders. The hills that surround the lake turn what would otherwise be an easy ride into a good workout. On the Winnekenni side of the lake there is more singletrack but none of the trails are well marked.

    Great place to ride, plenty of flow and some technical sections. Usually a lot of traffic from hikers and dog walkers on main trails but plenty of hidden single track. The trail hidden behind the castle(I believe is new) was pointed out to me by a hiker and is well built. Trails are not marked that well but easy enough to find your way around. My favorite section is by the second parking area after main entrance before hill to castle. Looks like they are doing a lot of work out here and adding new trails throughout..

    Add millvale reservoir to Kenoza lake for great loop. To connect use pear tree lane trail in back corner of college spurk parking lot there's a sign at trail head. Exits on middle rd just cross street to make loop around reservoir. GPS says about 11 miles from castle lot. Easily add more by exploring trails at both locations. I posted trail on wikiloc GPS to see on google earth.

    Great trail system not very technical. There are wide gravel roads to single track coming down the hill from castle. Close to home ride a few times a week. Bonus fun rope swings in a couple locations for the kids keep an eye out.
