    This place is a lot of fun with pretty much every kind of riding (including road, if that's also your thing) except for huge technical climbs. For a state park in the northeast, it is enormous and the listed 15 miles of trails is way low. For context, the Landmine Classic, an annual MTB race, follows a 25-mile route of two large loops, one on each side of the park, and it doesn't repeat any trails as far as I know. It also doesn't include close to all the trails. All told, I would guess they have closer to around 50 miles of trail, which NEMBA and The Friends of Wompatuck work together to do an amazing job of building and maintaining. If you're on the south shore of Massachusetts, this is definitely one of, if not the, premier trail networks to visit.

    EDIT: BTW, Friends of Wompatuck have created a very handy interactive map which you can download to your phone and use to view some routes and your location on the map. I used it to follow some of the Landmine Classic route and it was extremely helpful, especially considering how many trails there are. Here's the link: https://friendsofwompatuck.org/map/

    A little bit of technical, a little bit of flow, a little bit of exposed edge, a little bit of bridges, jumps and platforms. Not a lot of climbing. Go and have fun. A great place to develop skills.

    I highly recommend this park, it has a something for everyone. There is a lot of singletrack and fire roads to explore, and for those who enjoy technical features there is more than enough to keep your interest.

    Recently there was a new mountain bike specific trail opened up marked by a Yellow Triangle and "MBRC". It is unfortunately not marked on the map; neither are the freeride zones which consist of small and large drops up to around 10 ft, some bridges leading to drops and small berms.

    I haven't seen the trails since Irene, however the locals are good about clearing trees off the main routes

    Trails have been pretty well cleared of most of the debris from the winter. It's wet were you'd expect it to be wet (swampy areas) as well as Mount Hope. Taking a left up MH2 was like riding a brooke for much of it as well as taking a right cutting back up at MH4. Other than that singletrack is in good condition.

    Riding was fun today. Plenty of snowmobiles around packing down fire roads for some good riding. Cross country skiers throughout singletrack which makes for good riding - as long as temps stay down. Got a bit soft as temps rose around noon - so on the warmer days I'd stay on the snowmobile tracks (to the East of Union St)

    I started MTB about 1.5 yrs ago. I have aprox 120+ rides at Wompatuck. It has grown with me from being a novice on paved paths to doing jumps and 10' drop offs. This is to say there is something for everyone here, as well as good scenery with evidence of an interesting history all around. With any large area it can be frustrating your first few rides here putting all the singletracs together in a nice fluid run. However, If you plan well with a map you can ride hours with hardly any paved sections and will hardly ever bump into hikers on trails.(unlike Fells)

    Jumps have really been worked on and beefed up. Lot's of solid work done over there!* Review edited 12/29/2010

    Great network of singletrack. Some sick jumps and drop offs. Nice plank work to play on with a teeter-totter to boot. Great place no matter what you like to ride, some nice fast trails, some rocky - although didn't come across anything super technical on my first ride, but the jumps were a surprise for sure! Great scenery as well. Paved bike path links up various areas.

    Good network of rolling singletrack, intersected frequently by paved roads. Some decent climbs and technical, if brief, descents. Unfortunately it's difficult to really get into a nice flow because the singletrack is so often broken up by paved roads.

    Stellar network of well-marked trails. Grab a map at the parking lot and stick to the singletrack. A few hours worth of trails are here with lots of variety, but this is some well-maintained quality New England riding. Remnants of the ammuniton bunkers from the park's prior owners are still viewable in a few places, and the trails are hard packed, rooty, and fast in many places. A great variety, and the free ride network is a blast to end the ride on. Highly recommended.

    Great place to ride. Good freeride area. Some technical areas(lots of roots,rocks,and steep climbs). Some decent downhill spots. The entire park is a good couple hour ride at an intermediate pace. One of my favorite places to ride. * Review edited 11/14/2008
