It's a sweet ride, a bit rooty and rocky. Good climbs and descents for the area. Jump in right at the start of the park across from the first parking lot. Go right at first, then start going left (pretty sure). Some muddy spots at the start if it rained recently. It forks in places, but you end up on the golf course if you went the wrong way. There's a place where you can ride across a downed tree. From the direction you are coming you will ride around it. Take a left after that. Once you come out to a clearing with a small storage shed and a wire link fence, go towards the right into the trees again. Once out of there you are on an old dirt access road, take a right, then a left not too far down the hill back into the woods. Once you hit the park pavement again, bust a right and then there is more singletrack down the way off the right side, which will eventually lead you back towards the entrance to the park. Someone was building some jumps here when I was there.
For a better start, skip parking at the park and go to the Watertown High School off of Washington Street. Park on Green Street, and behind the track field, there's a double track entrance. Follow this, take a left at the fork, and this eventually turns into some decent singletrack with good climbs, and it comes out right across from Thompson Park!!
