Mountain Biking Prospect Hill

****   Add a review
#45 of 218 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#3341 in the world

This has a network of trails with paved roads leading to campsites. Not a lot to do here but does have a good size descent to cap off the day. This is a pretty good stop for backcountry skiing if you're also into that.

Getting there
Right off of I-95/I-128 at exit 27 at Totten Pond Road, then take a right at Glen Road. There are a few areas to enter from but this is the easiest.

    Old ski mountain that ran from the 40s to the early 90s. Some easy stuff and
    some crazy stuff from the top. There is a complete trail map online with
    difficulty ratings.

    I am new to mountainbiking, so my opinion may not carry with it a lot of persective. However, I would like to say that the park is very good if you are in this area, since there aren't that many parks in waltham where you can bike.

    The entrance of the trails are the entrance off of Tottenham Pond rd. You have to climb a lot of steep hills to get to where the trails start.

    There is a road that winds through the park that you can always get back on to get your bearings. Small trails criss cross the road.

    Being new, I like that there is an easy trail that still offers a lot of bumps, rocks, streams and wooded areas.

    The best part about this park would probably be the fact that the trails criss cross and it's not a single track.

    There is also a really great view of the city of Boston at the peak of one of the hills.
