Southeast Mass NEMBA Chapter Meeting

Our next SEMass NEMBA Chapter Meeting is on Monday November 28, 7 pm. The meeting will be held at Lucky’s 777 Bar & Grille in Holbrook.

Please note that one of the items is that our esteemed President, Tommy Walker, is stepping down at the end of December.

While we’re very sad about this, Tommy’s increasingly busy schedules at work and at home have influenced this decision. So, the ring is open. Wanna throw your hat into it? Let us know.

We will also be discussing possible changes to our meeting scheduling and frequency. We are looking for your input. Hope to see you there. Read more about SEMass NEMBA Chapter Meeting

Description

The Clifford T. Grant Management Area in Easton is a fun place to ride.

Just minutes from Borderland State Park it should be labelled don't miss on your bucket list.

Here's the description form the Trailforks page.

Clifford Grant has had a number of improvements over the years that make it great for mountain biking. All the trails are green and flowy with long wide bridges over the wet areas. This is a great place to add a few extra miles to your Borderland State Park ride. This is also a very good area to bring beginner riders to experience some real mountain bike trails with small rock gardens and tight turns.

The park runs a little wet in the spring. After a light snow, it's a fantastic place to bring your fat bike. The best trail is the yellow loop in either direction. The west side is narrow single track that may need a little clipping in the late summer. The eastern side is wider double track. SEMass NEMBA and local volunteers are constantly upgrading the bridges and trails in this area.

A little about Clifford Grant: The Oliver Ames Parker Reservation, the Town Forest, and the Clifford G. Grant Reservation make up the majority of this 320acre management area. To the north is the Flyaway Pond Conservation area. The parcels are within close walking distance of parking and abut the Easton Public Schools and the baseball fields. Trails crisscross the entire management area and make it one of the most accessible open spaces in the town. The area also contains Hogshead spring, which is the beginning of Black brook, and can be found just off the trails.

Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

Land Status: City Managed

Land Manager: Town of Easton

Access Info:

Most rides start at the Easton High School when it's not in sessionlot but you can also park at the Bay Road parking area at Bob's Trail (State Park permit required). Read more about Clifford Grant, Easton
