Topsfield, about 35 miles north of Boston. This is rolling terrain, with many flat stretches and some short, steep climbs and to two hills. This park is also used by horseback riders. When passing a horse, make sure to slow down and communicate with the rider, since some horses can become skittish around bicyclists. These trails are also used by hikers, and there is motorized traffic on paved Park Road. A few of the steeper trails in Bradley Palmer are quite eroded, so know your limits.

This years heavy rains have kicked up the trails a lot on the Blueberry Hill section of the park. Lots of ruts, rocks and trail erosion, make things exciting. I definetly think I need new brakes:) This park is good for everyone- a great place for beginners who need pavement, novices who like rolling dirt trails over the fields, and more skilled riders who like some downhill action.
