Ridiculously tight singletrack; great for technical training

Kyle Mallory

Overview

Hard to find parking
Tight singletrack has you looping through this smaller patch of woods until you are so disoriented you wont know witch way is up. This is a great effect to make the space feel larger. It is possible to link this singe track to the trails in the Martha Deering Wildlife Management Area giving you more than enough trail to ride for a full day. These trails have been racked and maintained by the locals creating amazing and ever expanding trails.
Features: -none-
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Parking: Park on the side of the road where the power lines cross at 12-36 Rayburn Dr, Millbury, MA 01527. Then head on the powerlines north about .3 miles until you see the trail entrance on the right. The majority of the trails can be found on the right side of the power lines however there are a good number of trails on the left side as well.

Description

The Colton Road trail system branches off the main gravel road that follows the power lines. Both sides have very tight singletrack. You won't be able to manage to average a high speed within this network because of how tight, rocky, and "rooty" it is. However, it is worth checking out if you're in the area and makes for great technical training. There are a few wooden bridges.

Looks like someone looks after it and blows the trails during the fall. The network can be quite extensive, heading back as far as the Conin Brook forest area. At this point, the trails are maintained less and are meant more for hiking.
