Mountain Biking Myles Standish Forest

***   Add a review
#81 of 221 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#5,080 in the world

There is something for everyone here including paved bike paths, unpaved fire access roads, bridle paths, and some great singletrack! My two favorite routes are the "Never Ending Trail" which is down by Fearing and Charges Pond and the East Reservoir Trail which circles around the reservoir. This however does not even scratch the surface of trails in the forest and my recommendation is to just show up, bring plenty of water, a map and compass as I mentioned, and get LOST! It is not a very rocky area but does have its fair share of roots and can be a little soft because of the sandy soil and the pine groves. Mud is very scarce but there are a few sections where you can get nice and mucky if that is your thing. It is actually best after a good rain as the track gets harder and faster. Keep in mind that hunting season starts November 30th and the trails are closed on weekends during hunting season. Don't want to get Dick Cheney'ed. Have fun!

Getting there
Myles Standish is located in South Plymouth and is MASSIVE! There are many parking lots in and around the park but I prefer the parking lot on Long Pond Road which is Exit 5 off of Rte 3. Head West after making the exit for about 5 miles or so and the entrance will be on your right. You can't miss it. Best to print off a map from the forest website and put it in your pocket along with a compass because I have been riding in here for 2 years now and I still get lost on a regular basis!

    The Heart Healthy Trail near the head quarters (parking area) is the best trail in the park.. short trail though

    Some neat trails, very big park (map is definitely helpful), but what this park is really great for is fat biking, since plenty of locals use it for snowmobiling and fat biking in the Winter, so the trails have some nice pack to them.

    This place is OK. After the entrance gate is the main trail for hiking, but you can also bike. There is a heart healthy trail that I biked, but be care full the pond is a slip away! This place is MASSIVE get a MAP and bring a compass lots of ponds and sandy areas I forgot the name of my favorite trail but all are pretty long and smooth. This place is not as challenging as other but its big.
