Make sure you ride with someone, and make sure you have a GPS Route like the one at the link below, or you will be hopelessly lost. Even worse, you will never find all the fun stuff to ride.
Great 4-5 hour Hike over very rugged terrain. Amazing views and 1000's of unique geological rock formations. Around every corner is just WOW for what you will see. Even if you bring your best Camera, you will not capture what you see with your eyes.

New Ride for this year at LYNN WOODS.
This is a 10 Mile Advance-Intermediate Level Ride.
This ride stays away from all the stunts and drops from the Northern part of the park.
This is still a very technical and very difficult ride.
You will need strong legs and great cardio to complete this 10 mile loop.
Expect 2 1/2 to 3 hours for this ride.
This ride has lots of climbing, then rewarded by lots of great downhills. This side of the park has many more hills and climbing than the Northern Side.
This ride was carefully constructed to make the climbs easier while taking maximum advantage of the hill you just climbed.
Look for this as a group ride later this ride season. Really must have your cardio and your legs up for this ride.
This Reoccurring Ride is a good technical-level training ride. If you can ride Lynn Woods, you can ride anywhere. Most of Lynn Woods is either Advance Level Riding, or Expert Level Riding. While there are fireroads that can get you around the park, there are very few trails that you can consider beginner or intermediate. This is an 11 mile loop designed to show you all corners of the park. Each side of the park is known for different riding skills. The South Side is endurance and cross country, and the North Side is Endurance, Technical Skills, and Big Balls... This 11 mile loop keeps both wheels on the ground and is considered and Advance Level Mountain Bike Ride.
This ride will be held on Weekend Mornings periodically through the ride season.
This is an Advanced-Level Mountain Bike Ride on rugged trails.
Please read the warnings on the ride page link.

Anytime we are out for a bike or a hike at Lynn Woods, you will always see the folks Bouldering. In the last 5 years, it has become the newest sport @ Lynn Woods. Hundreds of such boulder climbs are available.
The Friends of Lynn Woods have formed to ensure the perpetual existence of the Lynn Woods Reservation as outlined by the Indentured Trust of December of 1881.
Our aim is to protect the Woods from development and exploitation, and maintain the Woods as a natural and unspoiled forest preserve. We will organize and enlist volunteers to undertake projects within the Woods that will enhance but not alter the natural and primeval qualities of the forest.
We will strive to make Lynn Woods a prominent focal point of the City of Lynn. We will educate adults and children alike to the environmental and historical values of Lynn Woods.
The Friends of Lynn Woods will be the means for people to become reacquainted with the Lynn Woods Reservation.
Lynn Woods Reservation is the second largest municipal park in the greater Boston area. This 2,200 acre forest reserve consists of ponds, wetlands, streams, deciduous/evergreen forest and rocky ledge. The ponds provide the drinking water for the residents of Lynn and surrounding communities. Wildlife abounds in the forest. Well over 100 species of birds inhabit or seasonally frequent the woods. A large rodent population supports such predators as hawks, owls and red tail fox. More than an aquifer, more than a wildlife preserve, more than a wilderness experience, Lynn Woods is a rare and unique adventure.
Lynn Woods awaits your exploration and enjoyment. You will come to love and appreciate the woods as did the early settlers and citizens who wisely preserved it for all generations. For more information on events in Lynn Woods, call the Rangers' program information line at 781-477-7094.
