Trail Description
About this trail
MTF is a very cool mix of techincal riding and singletrack, making strong use of natural features, especially large rocks. It's a LOT of riding packed into a currently marked 6.5-7 mile loop that will give your legs and bike handling skills a nice challenge. LOTS of switchbacks and quick climbs and quick descents -- certainly not a place for flow and swoop, but great to have some fun and push your legs/ lungs. Kudos to Bill for building such fantastic trails!

Review: Seriously good riding. Somebody has put a lot of time and effort (and creativity) into these trails. There are several sections branching off from fire roads: I started near the fire tower on some spongy twisty singletrack that wrapped around an old stone wall.. then crossed a fire road for some less technical swoopy stuff. Next time I was there I took a left at the Town Forest sign (bottom of the hill under the fire tower) on a fire road and branched off into more technical trails including lots of rock obstacles, hairpin turns, and a slalom over and back across a ravine. Grade varies a lot over the many acres. Several stream crossings and opportunities to take drops off boulders. Trails are marked with orange/red arrows.

Review: First time there this past weekend; trails were leaf-blown and in VERY good shape. This really is some A-game fun with rocks riding; my balance and skills were pushed. There were new orange markers to follow all the way around, though it looks like there are more trails I didn't get onto. Definitely worth finidng someone to ride through with and check it out. Not many bail points, though, so be ready.
