A nice loop of flowy singletrack with some small obstacles along the way.

Adopt These Trails!


One of the best areas for flowy singletrack in the area. Trails are typically packed dirt. There is a network of fire roads that go through this park. Intersections are numbered but it is recommended to have a map or use the MTB Project mobile app so that you can figure out where you are. Maps are available here:…

This loop follows almost all singletrack, with a few short sections of fire roads to connect.
Dogs: Leashed


The ride starts from the pulloff parking on Topsfield Rd. There is a small field with a small Willowdale sign. The trail is easy to identify from the gate.

Most of the singletrack trail is marked with blue blazes, although the blazes are hard to spot in some sections. Luckily the singletrack is not.

After about 0.4 miles, the trail dumps out onto a fire road. Turn left and continue up the fire road for about 300 ft. You'll see the singletrack continue off to the right. After that the singletrack is easy to follow. It crosses the fire roads often but is easy to spot the continuation when it does. If you want to bail at any point, when you cross a fire road you can turn right and follow these back to the parking lot. There are many opportunities to do this.

The northern part of the loop has more obstacles such as a drop-in, skinnies, a few ramps etc. The eastern part of the loop includes a steep climb.

The "skinny" and the jump in the included photo no longer exist. Some nice person knocked them down along with some other amazing features. Jul 10, 2016
I've explored Willowdale a handful of times and could never piece together a good flowing loop, but I don't have to worry anymore thanks to this route. Tons of great flowy singletrack with some small punchy climbs. The last couple of miles running the route clockwise is double track. It'd be great to offer some single track alternative to the double track. Jan 29, 2017
