    Easy around Boston/Waltham

    Hi everyone and thanks in advance for the help. I'm taking my fiance out for the first time and I'm not familar with the trails in the area. Is anyone aware of a place where it's mostly pretty open trails (almost walking trails). Wasn't sure if the Fells would work or another place near the lexington/belmont line a read about. I'm trying not to scare her away from this her first time.

    Rock Meadow/Beaver Brook North on the border of Belmont and Waltham would probably be perfect for what you are looking for. Parking lot just off of Mill Street in Belmont.

    You could also try Great Brook in Acton, some double track there as well.

    I lived near Rock Meadow in Belmont for years -- perfect spot to get people new into mountain biking. Almost no hills, and most of it is double track. There's also some surprisingly fun singletrack offshooting the trails for those little excursion moments or to build into a ride.

    Once she gets more into it, take her to Cutler Park in Needham/ Newton.
