Blue Hills & Cutler Park Seasonal trail Closure

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Please respect the March Mud Season Closures at Blue Hills and Cutler Park.

These closures are designed to protect the trails and will be dropped if conditions stabilize before the end of the month.

Also! Use your best judgement when riding elsewhere. The ground needs time to defrost, and damage from riding on the top layer of mud can take a long time to heal, encouraging erosion and trail widening. 

A good rule of thumb: If you wouldn't ride multiple laps around your house on your lawn, don't ride on trails. 

We're all interested in making sure that our trails last forever. Making sure that the spring's mud doesn't wash away is our best way to achieve that goal. Read more about Blue Hills & Cutler Park Seasonal trail Closure

Description

The Cataumet Greenway at 95 acres is a small area that's dense with trails. About 5 miles if you ride everything. The trails are almost all winding, flowing singletracks. All are fun to ride no matter which direction you choose to ride them in.

The best place to park is near Cataumet's Post Office. You'll see a parking area, playground and trailhead in the same complex.

A good description of the area is this one, taken from the Bourne Conservation Trust's Website.

Cataumet Greenway, approximately 95 acres, is comprised of several parcels joined together to provide a network of trails through varying habitats. It is home to numerous species of wild animals and a variety or wildflowers. A sheep trench from an era gone by can still be seen at various point along the trail. Included is Red Brook Pond Conservation Area, Cataumet Center, and Lawrence Island. Read more about Cataumet Greenway
