Overview

This network of (very) old roads and newer singletrack allows for many varied rides that connect to different parts of the Mass Central Rail Trail. The Rail Trail gets lots of walkers, joggers, and riders, but almost no one rides the much more interesting Outer Loop network trails. One of the best segments is the northern portion of the Inner Loop which follows a very narrow but smooth path along the Wachusett Aqueduct right-of-way.

Description

This ride boasts flowing trails which connect to the Mass Central Rail Trail at several spots. Each can combine for interesting short loops that see very few riders, hikers or joggers, especially considering how many people you'll see on the Rail Trail. Gentle slopes, many trees and roots, but very few rocks make this a great place for a fun ride that doesn't require extensive technical skills.
