Mountain Biking Lynn Woods Reservation

****   Add a review
#3 of 221 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#501 in the world

There's enough riding here to last a lifetime. The entire reservation is surrounded by gravel fire roads and is interconnected all the way through with literally a hundred or more single track routes. Each route has its own number (make sure to check out and take a map at the beginning so you don't get lost, which is easy!) and vary from muddy swamp rides to boulder-infested hill climbs to crazy paths filled with logs, rocks, hills, trees, large animals, and more! If you follow the signs to Dungeon Road leading to Dungeon Rock, you'll also be treated to some awesome hiking, which is a nice way to take a break. Strongly recommended! This place has everything.

    I live a mile away. There is a good mix of rides. Some crazy high hills to climb on fire roads around Stone Tower, Iron Tower, and Dungeon Rock. Some nice intermediate-advanced rock gardens on some of the more mainstream trails. And crazy rock hopping clifftops once you get up on the bluffs on the north side.

    I am going to give an advanced level just because the trails that you can take along the main loop are not easy, there are pretty technical. The main loop is pretty good for a warm-up but if you want some action you need to take the different trails all over the area. Overall Nice Trail.

    Very technical, rocky trails for the most part with some fun, flown sections farther from the parking lot. A few sweet rock rolls and the odd totally bananas roll to air lip. Some parts near the parking lot are virtually unrideable, take the doubletrack out to Wicked Hard Trail/Pow Wow and ride singletrack from there. The blue trails near the parking lot are best ridden as a return; climbing them is just a tough hike-a-bike. Trail has some great views over the reservoir. FYI, swimming is prohibited but the locals all do it anyway.

    Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video from Lynn Woods in Lynn, MA. Lynn woods has some of the best technical riding in New England. This place is littered with rocks from technical gardens, to major drops, and even a sick jump line if you know where to look. Be sure to bring your phone and jump on trail forks so that you don't miss the good stuff. I post new videos from different spots in the Northeast every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more!

    Good local spot with some challenging tech. Not really a place I would go to if you're looking to put in miles. Not much flow and only one real main loop. Fun place if you're passing by or local.

    Most of the reviews do not give this place justice and are out dated. The REAL riding is north of Walden Pond off Rte 1. Park behing the old Boston Grille and jump in at the powerlines past the Mexican restautant. Sweet tight, single track onto and around granite rock croppings with plenty of drops and challenging transistions. Some of, if not the best, technical riding in all of NE

    Varying technical skills. The climb to the stone tower from the west side gives quite a good work out. The cave the the dungeon rd is another nice place to check out.

    It's true, this place does have everything. Second time riding, and still exploring the many trails available. With the fire roads running throughout, you won't get completely lost as you'll run back into one eventually.

    Trails are marked pretty well, and with the intersections numbered, should be able to put together a nice long ride after more exploration* Review edited 11/1/2009

    Best trail riding I have done. With the addition of new trails recently cut by Diesel Bikes, there are excellent flow loops possible, from 1hr to 3-4hr epic rides. Drops from 1' to 10' or bigger, short steep rolls to huge 20' rolls with a flick at the end. The best part is that almost everything is a natural formation. It is pretty amazing, especially if you can find someone who really knows the trails.

    Huge rocks everywhere, it's like a big playground, fun drops and climbs, good scenery, good singletrack, some log rides here and there, overall very fun

    I believe the best riding comes from the other side of Walden Pond (Lynn). I park in the Naked Fish parking lot off Route 1 (Just be respectful of their business because they have been finickey in the past with Bikers parking there) and then you can access the trails from the other side of the powerlines. Bowridge is the best area as far as rock climbs, drops and technical riding. There are a lot of places to mess around. There was a new trail which was cut relatively recently which bypasses the develpment going in and that is very technical and borderline unridable in some areas but it has an amazing view of the whole reservation. Though once that trail is ridden on a bunch more times it will become more navigable. I've been riding here for about 8 years now.
