- Ipswich, MA
- There are many numerous trails around the area, there is one main loop with trails verging off leading to other towns, and more trails. Right in the center of the main loop, there is a hill with three trails leading up/down it, one easy, one hard and one unrideable, going up, if you were to go down it, that's another story. The trails are nice and they meander along the town resevoirs, (swimming is prohibited) and out along numerous hills. the trails are mostly doubletrack, but offer many technical areas due to fallen trees and rocks strewn about, it's a really nice place for an afternoon ride.
- On route 1A heading north, out of town, travel about three miles, just past the infamous "Clam Box", a really nice fried food restaurant, at the bottom of the hill take a left into the Utilities Dept., they will usually let you park there, just make sure you are out of the way. The trail follows the power lines out back heading into the woods. The area gets little use, but always be curteous if you see an equestrian or two. Happy Trails
- All trails are open to bicycles. No swimming in the resevoirs. The woods of Willowdale State forest are a short ride away behind Doyon School, on Linebrook Road.
