Nice mix of trails from beginner to technical with rocks, roots, deadfalls and all the trimmings! Just watch out for the deer, sometimes they dont hear you coming...
I rode here with a few friends and had a blast. We rode for 2.5 hours and was totally spent afterwards. There are some really technical areas and some fast downs and killer climbs.
This is a fun place to ride. I got confused at the turn "at four small pine trees and a tree with a white dot" turn left. Come to find out, all the trails are now marked and the trail map available at the visitors center is a full color work of art. Its a topo map as well so you can choose to work the hills or work around them. The trail junction markers are positioned so that when you are facing them you are facing north. (get the new trail map before the ride) The park was very clean, the people friendly and the fall colors are great. Note: this trail is set in the southern area of the park where hunting is allowed. Bicyclists are warned to be aware of hunting season and "wear blaze orange when appropriate." There is no hunting on Sundays. The rest of this park begs to be explored.
I don't think people in the area around Wompatuck realize what a gem they have. The place is huge with hours of fun riding different types of terrain. Pick up a map at the office a take off for a half day of great riding. THis park has trails for everyone. All you need to do is get out there and look. I was there in April so it was still a little chilly but you work up a sweat pretty quick. All around a great place to ride.
