Description

The Bedford Reservation trails are singletrack loops that overlap some sections of paved shared use multi-purpose trail. The trails here were designed for novices, but they are still fun for more skilled riders.

The trails are mostly smooth, and travel over rolling wooded terrain. The area is not flat, but there are no serious hills either. There is one small, fun, rocky section near the eastern end. The route follows through the woods so be aware of the roots here and there. The new 2 mile Touch Stone section added south of Egbert Rd is great fun.

First time on any singletrack. Great for a seasoned cyclist getting into MTB. Did all but the area nearest Egbert Road...The legs were worn out! 9.4mi — 1h 09m
