Myles Standish State Forest

Myles Standish State Forest Professional Review and Guide

"If you decide Plymouth can wait, explore the trails through the park, including the paved bike path (a good portion of this ride) or explore the many horse / hiking / biking trails that wind through the dense forest. The forest is a prime area for ticks, so be sure to wear bug repellent or be extra vigilant when checking after a ride through the woods.

There are two distinct parts to this ride: the smooth, sedate part; and the more challenging, lung-busting, leg-pumping part. The easier section is made up of smooth, almost pristine asphalt bike paths. These paths wind through the forest occasionally crossing a bridle path or road. The difficult section is sandy, rocky, and rutted."
