A ride through the Wilmington Town Forest.

Overview

A nice circuit around the highlights of the Wilmington Town Forest. The ride takes you from the end of Research Dr., loops through the northern part of the forest, before climbing over the water tower hill, down to Woburn St. then back into the forest, all the way up to the water tower, before dropping back down to the parking lot. This is a nice, relatively easy ride - great for beginners or just a quick run during your lunch break if you work in the area.

Description

Start on the Water Tower Trail. About a third of the way out, take a trail to the left that will take you onto the North Loop. Once you complete that and return to where you left the Water Tower Trail, continue up to the left (north). When almost at the top, veer off onto The Dipper, which is a fun, albeit not long enough, descent to Woburn St.

Ride up Woburn St. for a bit and re-enter the forest at Ol' Crusty, follow that for a short distance to Bee Trail (if you start seeing camp structures - you've gone too far), which will take you back up to Water Tower Trail. Ride it to the very top, enjoy the scenic views of the giant graffiti-covered concrete pimple (i.e. the water tower), and take the Ladder Trail from just below the tower back to the parking lot. Or go back down The Dipper for another loop, if you like :)
