Given that most of my riding has been in the eastern part of the state and my wife and I are looking to move to central MA, does anybody have any knowledge of riding at either of these two state forests? Are there any trails? Are the land managers amenable to the building of new trails? The northern portion of Townsend SF looks huge and doesn't seem to have much in the way of marshy wetlands and Ashburnham SF seems quite similar (but not as large as TSF). The work at Pearl Hill is great and to open the northern part of Townsend SF and Ashburnham would be amazing. If access is allowed.

Thanks!
