Trail Description
About this trail
Rayburn Trails is a tightly built network of singletrack floating in, out, and around the power lines. Depending on who you ask, there is up to 10 miles of trails which can take some time to ride based upon the nature of the trails themselves. This is EXTREMELY tight, sharp singletrack. The ground runs the gamut from smooth track to rocks and logs to quick downhills and climbs, wall rides, stone wall crossings, bridges, swamp… there’s honestly something for everyone in this land. Your bike handling skills will be put to the test, but it can be very easily ridden on a hard tail as the terrain isn’t too threatening. Bring plenty of water, though, as it’s easy to become disoriented and the way out is the way you came in. Stellar New England singletrack, though – awesome switchbacks! As NEMBA is now involved with the trail, it\'s becoming well-marked and easy to find where you\'re heading.

Q: Where do i enter trail -Lane79

A: If you park at Buck Brothers, ride up the street to the woods. Enter and bare right; single track starts almost immediately on your left. Climb in and go straight when you hit the power lines into the woods and enjoy!

Review: Little bit of everything out here, but all very rideable and enjoyable 100%. I entered Rayburn Drive in Milford on my GPS to find an entry point, and if you park on that road directly underneath the big powerlines you'll find at least "an" entrance to the trail(s). Take the doubletrack under the powerlines heading north, then hook a right into the treeline and there's the singletrack. I took the track that had little stones piled up on either side of the start of it, as s there were a few apparent entrances there, and got almost four miles of track until it finally spit me back out underneath the lines. Nothing too difficult, but not boing either, this place is simply very well designed, and designed for mountain bikes specifically. I'd say it's one of the best I've done in the area.

Review: It's sad thinking that most people will never experience leaf-covered, rooty, rocky, New England single track in the fall. This is a time where your rear wheel becomes your sliding enemy, not your solid friend.

Review: There's a new-ish section of ST climbing in if you park at Buck Brothers which is a lot of fun and is way better than just pedaling along power lines. Additionally, due to power line work, there's some impromptu "bridges" laid down which is pretty fun.

Review: Just rode this today for the first time. It's okay and its close to where I live. It is a VERY tight single track with lots of switch backs. The turns are tight and that really slows things down a lot. I like to go faster, so slow is boring to me and I found myself cutting off some of the switchbacks and going off trail. There are some technical parts to the trails where they cross big rocks or stone walls, but its mostly pretty easy riding. One review states there are 10 miles of trails, but I sure don't know where they are, but I'll keep exploring. Its a good single track for beginners.

Review: Awesome tight singletrack, probably the best in Central MA. There are many parking options, the most popular is on Rayburn Dr. under the powerlines. Another good place to park is at Dorothy Pond, its easy to pickup trails by going north on Riverlin St. There are also many more unpopular trails on the west side of Riverlin St. branching off of an abandoned railroad.

Review: There's some new trail in there since last summer - always fun riding here and a fantastic use of the local terrain. The BUMS rule.
