This is a place that all the locals are talking about!

Approximately 10 miles of trails, and various group rides throughout the week.

Area is not very hilly with some interesting features. Local NEMBA chapter is continuing to build new trails and improve existing trails.

Editor’s Note: WOW, What a place to ride! Incredibly well maintained and marked trails, great single-track with lots of curves,  most not too technical. Also a great place to go if you have people in your party who don’t want to do single-track as there are also some really nice, level dirt roads around the perimeter of the park. Find your way to the dam and ride across the road on the top to a really nice picnic area with a gazebo, benches, picnic tables, and great views! My oldest son and I road many of the trails on July 12th. We road the following trails – and they were all great (total distance about 6.1 miles):

  • Moose Gully – Nice single track.
  • Pine Snake – Great single track trail through a pine forest. Quite and cool.
  • Bee – Single track
  • Old Bench -Single track
  • Lost Wall – Like the name implies, there is a great old stone wall and an old stone cellar near the beginning of this single track trail.
  • Chicken Ravine – Single track
  • Whaleback – Nice single track with a clean pond mid-way. Also some nice exposed rock area by the pond.
  • Heritage – One of the wide dirt roads.
  • Coleman- Wide dirt road
  • Un-named dirt road trail to the top of the dam. At the top of the dam is a paved road – go over the dam to the picnic area, go in the other direction ot return to the parking lots.


  • From the South or North – Take 93 North to Route 127 South (Exit 22).  Parking lot is 3.2 miles on your right.
  • From the East – Take Route 11/3 past 93 into Franklin. Turn right onto Route 127 North (New Hampton Road). After several miles, turn left onto Granite Street. There are several parking lots on Granite Strett.
