*   Add a review
#185 of 220 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#11,801 in the world

Trail starts with a quick challenge climb. You will then take a right and go up a small climb.
Follow trail as it goes up and connects with another trail, you will be going down hill now. The
trail loops around for a moderate climb along the hill. Take a right and a quick left then stay
straight on the trail which will lead to some serious technical downhill. At the bottom of the hill
take a right to the Hampden Rec Park. Go to Main St and take a left, go about 200yds and take
left onto North Rd then take right at Green Meadows School. Go along the parking lot to the back
left of the school yard where trail picks up again. Ride trail taking a right then left where you will
be along a stream. Follow trail keeping right along stone fences. Keep staying right up a hill and
then take right over rock water fall. Rest for an impossible climb along the power lines. After
the second climb take the trail to the left. Stay straight on this trail that winds down to a stream
and up to a farm which leads to North Rd. Cross road to down hill driveway and take right into
small field, trail will pick up on the left. Get ready for a killer climb that does not stop! Once you
have made it take the trail right to a dirt driveway to Burleigh Rd. Take a left for an enjoyable
ride (paved) downhill, careful of cars going up though. This will put you back on Main St take a
left back to starting point. Good place to stop for Java and donuts is Rice's Fruit Farm on Main St.

    If this is the Rice trails at the top of Highmoor st. I was there today and they are definitely not mountain biking trails, they are hiker trails. Start off with a very narrow down hill that is mostly washed away to a valley that is 12 feet wide and 5 feet deep.. not a nice place to be.

    Impossible to find... Going east on main street is all up hill. So "Going downhill" is a bad case of direction.
