Per NEMBA, "Some very technical and fun singletracks have sprouted up in recent years, making good use of rock faces and other technical challenges. It's now possible to do an extended ride solely on tight, twisty, challenging singletracks. However, definitely look before you ride some of these features, as some are extremely challenging. These trails are currently unblazed." Rumor has it this place will kick your butt if you stray off the fire roads nowadays.

Getting there
95 South to Exit 17 (135W), which becomes Great Plain Ave. Take a left onto Central Ave. This gets confusing - stay on central ave. When you hit the intersection in the middle of Needham, take your left, continuing to follow 135. You'll come to a set of lights after a bit where you'll have to take a left again to stay on Central Ave, which will lead you to the entrace. You'll probably drive past it before realizing that's where it is since the sign is parallel with the road - there's a golf course across the street.
