    Awesome spot to ride as a relative newbie - fun Singletrack with some technical sections and just enough climbing to keep you honest. Even on my sub optimal rig (2003 Trek Liquid recently converted to a 1x9), I was able to stay on the bike through 90% of the Alphabet route.

    16 single track trails, some beginner, many intermediate. All trails together about 12 miles. Not very rocky, lots of roots.

    Last review was two years ago, so here's an update to the system here--i did the "letters" (Alpha through Kilo) and it was almost 6.5 miles running Trailforks the whole time. Lots of nice bridges (thanks, Blackstone Valley NEMBA!) and the trails were nm in great shape.
    Some challenging sections (Golf in particular was a big climbing section), plenty of tight trails, some rocks and roots, some smooth straightaways, some weaving turns (and I hope you got your endo swing ready, cause there's no sidewall on those swithcbacks to keep you from flying into the treeline), and just overall a very nice ride.
    Only complaint is a couple times when you "leave" the Alpha-Kilo singletracks you need to follow a main-trail system, and often it was missing a "This way!" arrow of some sort.
    But get out here and check this place out, it definitely is more than beginner trails, but it would serve as a decent ride to get your feet wet, too.

    There's a healthy amount of singletrack (a few miles) around this area that makes for a very fun loop. Most of the singletrack is tight-cut and is a great use of the land, offering enough to keep you awake, but the majority of the land is relatively flat with no huge climbs or descents. Very newbie-friendly and a lot of fun.

    Mixed single track and roads with some obstacles.

    There is a nice 4 mile loop that weaves through the woods then runs out at the dam most is single track withe some gravel like others report. Much better than previously stated. Great place to do laps in the woods. Careful for the horses and dogs most on leash.

    Only rode here once as I was trying to add more options for my after work rides. Nothing special here. Most of what I found was service/fire roads. Loose gravelly terrain very little single track
