Newest Intermediate MTB Adventure Ride on the North Shore.
Explore the very under-used Boxford Forest.
Not many folks have ventured into the Boxford Forest. I have spent the last few years exploring, and now I present this Adventure Ride to explore the park. These trails are suitable for a Cyclo-Cross Bike, or a Mountain Bike.
Full suspension is welcome, but not needed here.
Lack of direct access parking is the main reason this forest is not used. Using the Masconomet H.S. (@Rt 95 and Endicott St) as a large capacity parking area, you can access the park with just a 1.5 mile trip to the trail head.
The trails are not technical and not well maintained with the exception of the Bay Circuit Trail.
The BCT is maintained by the BCT Trail Organization which does a wonderful job keeping the trails open and clear.
The 6 miles on the BCT is the best part of this whole ride. You will get the feeling you are in the deep woods and on a true adventure while in Boxford. You should not ride the is a scarcely used park and getting yourself lost, you maybe out there for a while.
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.
NEW 7/2019: See the Video for this ride, it is not as scary as you think....
Intermediate Level Mountain Bike Ride.
This is a great mountain bike ride of 25 miles, with fewer than 4 miles of road riding in 2 small segments. Round-Trip ride starting and ending at the Danvers High School. See some great trails some you never knew existed. Nothing super technical on this ride, but lots of twisty trails, fun downhills, and a visit to 4 different MTB parks. This is the same route as the first 1/2 of the CX-201 ride. CX-201 is Advanced Level, because you are on a CX bike. This ride is Intermediate Level because MTBs have suspension, while a CX bike is fully rigid.
WHY 25 MILES???
I put a lot of rail-trail in this version so Intermediate Level Mountain Bikers can try some longer distance riding. This is a great route to advance your endurance level. This route is well thought out so you can experience different aspects of longer mountain bike rides. Some fun stuff, followed by more fun stuff, followed by more fun stuff, followed by a gentle rail-trail dirt ride return. Great training if you want to attend some of All Day Adventures Advance Level Mountain Bike Rides.
Ride time is less than 3-1/2 hours.
33 Mile round trip loop starting at Danvers High School.
This ride has 17+ miles of Really fun singletrack, 11 miles of gravel rail trails and a few short road ride segments.

This is a very Satisfying Adventure Ride

Hit some great parks along the way. Spring Pond, Lynn Woods, Breakheart Reservation, 4 miles in the Fells, 8 miles of the Commuter Bike path, and 3 miles on the Marblehead Rail Trail. An Advance-Intermediate rider will find this to be a fun ride.
While this ride was designed for a Cyclo-Cross bike, it is just as much fun on a Hardtail MTB, just a little more work. Bring some food. This ride is over before you know it. A great introduction ride for my other adventure rides.

As a 18 Mile Mountain Bike Adventure, this ride lets the intermediate level trail user expand or test their own endurance, for a multi-hour trail riding experience. Expect 3-5 hours for this ride.
About the Trails: The trail systems in Concord are wide and well-groomed single tracks. Easy to ride, not too many bumps. You will not encounter many other trail users. In wet conditions you may want to wait for a better day, because of the slippery tree roots. These trails are easy to navigate, some moderate hill climbs, but mostly just peaceful solitude for you and your other
