The trails in Dogtown offer a mix of challenging, rocky terrain and smooth, fast doubletrack roads. Riders will find that the trails are often not crowded and the assorted scenery (overlooking Babson Reservoir and peering through the woods in the northern part of the park) can help calm the nerves of even the most frazzled city dweller. Terrain: Doubletrack fire roads covered with small rocks, dirt fire roads, technical singletrack. This is a fairly dry ride and the only perpetually wet areas are at the stone dam and on some lower doubletrack roads.
