    This place really is a MTB gen compete with some of the most wholesome trails that exist in the area. You will find every type of trail feature, all well maintained, but hidden behind the effort of navigating this huge place. Allot extra time for getting lost !

    Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video of the Vietnam Trails. This place is one of the best in New England. A great mix from XC to jumplines, and beginner to expert. I also post new videos from different spots around New England every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more!

    This is one of the best trail networks in Central Mass with a wide variety of trails from XCountry to seriously tech with jump lines and all, beginner friendly to advanced. The best place to park is at the Adams street trail head @ 388 Adams St, Holliston, MA 01746-1404, United States

    Go to trails if you're in eastern ma. Great mix of flowy, tech, drops, jumps. Solid local crew of nemba chimps keep it clean. Some of the best riding in MA.

    Big teeter totter, some jumps, and small bridge work near the Adams St lot are fun. Always more to find/ link up at Vietnam!

    Very nice and interest trail. The whole area offers plenty of different single tracks and a great nature.

    Two new bridges towards the Adams Lot area courtesy of a rad Eagle Scout and his troop. 2015 has been great on the trails and they're a blast right now; all the usual Nam fun.

    This place is the best in the area for biking, period. Many older reviews mention it's for dirt bikes but I've rid here many times in 2014-2015 and never seen a moto bike. There is a good variety of intermediate to advanced trails and features and very well maintained. Whether you crave long moderately difficult fire trails or tight technical singletrack or anything in between you'll have fun here. To top it off there are many jumps, drops and rollers to keep things interesting all of which you can bypass if you're not up for it. Thank you Nemba for enabling me to take my riding to a level I never expected I'd reach!

    It's been quite a few years since I last rode at Vietnam, but it was always worth the trip from the cape. You can spend just about all day on these trails having a blast.

    The powers that be have said that there are efforts in the works to get this place signed up -- it's a shame to have such great trail and have it so hard to navigate! Otherwise, NEMBA has kept the jumps and trails in great shape.

    Not sure if a full face is mandatory but a big set of balls and at least 6" of travel is! Some of the best riding to be had and easy to follow the trail. Some new stash put in my NEMBA...place just keeps getting better and worth getting lost in for a day. Park behind the Wendy's off Rte 85 and follow the bike bath to the powerlines* Review edited 8/15/2012

    There are A LOT of trails out there, and this Vietnam playground lured me and my buddy for the hour drive out there. First off if you want parking, look up the Upper Charles River Trail, thats the trail that follows the old RR track. Vietnam isn't technicaly the name of the park so how did it get the name??

    I was rather disappointed though, the trails are not marked what so ever except for colored bottle caps that lead to who knows where, random tape on trees and such. Unless you want to be lost for hours like me, bring someone familiar with the park. Prepare to get wet, lots of marsh and rivers and few bridges over them.

    Add to that the trails are poorly maintained and overgrown. There are still trees down from the hurricane it looks. We moved a few, but we ran into perhaps a dozen trail sections blocked by large trees 12+ inches thick.

    Hopefully I can return sometime and review this place better, by the time we got out to the general location of this "VIETNAM" we were ready to head to the Wendys and call it a day (6 hours of riding)

    I had stayed away for so long hearing what a big bike playground it is. Although there is some real big hit stuff to enjoy here, there is PLENTY of xc trails to enjoy. Some technical rock gardens, and some nice trails to catch some speed. It is an all around playground for whatever your riding preference.

    Not much more to add other than that it's a great place to ride if you like technical features. Some real big bit stuff back there but if you look you can find some great single and double track. Recommend a map as it can be easy to go in circles

    What can you say it is one of the few MTB dedicated trail systems in MA. I tend to stay clear of the freeride park. Or at least I did till I got my Ibis Mojo. The single track is nice and super technical with several rock gardens. You can weave you way onto double track sections that allow for some faster riding.

    I used to ride this trail around 2001-2003 and I'm not sure if NEMBA had it yet or not.
    I loved it! Challenging and different terrain everywhere. Crazy climbing and great downhill. And to me....The mud was the best part!
    Yaaaaa!

    Been awhile since anyone's updated this - Vietnam is probably one of the more premier riding locales in MA now. NEMBA has taken over and designed miles of trails, stunts, and amazing lines for all types of ability. Almost any stunt can be ridden around, and a good guide can show you everything from 10' drops to awesome rollers to killer smooth singletrack to rooted forests to a massive rock garden. Everything is in here, but it's still a giant network and not easy to find your way around unless you really know it. Go to the NEMBA forum, find a guide, and ride hard!
