The town of Foxboro, 35 miles southwest of Boston. Although the terrain here is relatively flat, there are many regular short climbs and descents. Some of the single-track trails can be difficult-less-experienced riders should dismount and walk down eroded stretches. Although one can get disoriented in this network of trails, the area is bounded by paved roads. As always, watch out for other trail users.

This is some of Massachusetts finest. You can cruise on these trails if you have a little skill which makes them super fun. Also a good place for beginners to test there skills out. Some loops are a little more difficult hillwise which makes them tougher technically but other than that nothing to really fear. You can spend a good three hours here if you do it right or you can just bang out a good hard hour ride. Only a half hour from Boston which makes it really convenient
