Mountain biking in the Middlesex Fells allows the off-road cyclist the use of all Fire Roads. In addition to fire roads, there is a designated loop trail, which offers riders an easy to follow path around the Western Fells. This trail is marked by red and white mountain bike loop signs. This loop trail is about 85% on fire roads and 15% on single-track trail. The single track section of the Reservoir Trail is the only single track trail open to mountain bikers. All other single track trails are presently off-limits to bikers. Trail restrictions are based on the sensitivity of soil, slopes, wildlife habitat, and public safey concerns. Please stay off trails marked with "No Bicycle" signs.
How to get there:
From Boston follow I-93 North to the Winchester Fellsway exit - about 15 min.
Trail damage is a real concern here. Be kind to the trail or we'll lose it forever.
