    Map For HP

    Where is the best map(s) of the Harold Parker trails? I have the old Wicked Ride of the East map from 2005 but it does not have some of the new trails (North). Can anyone help out... most of the maps on NEMBA are not on their website any more.

    The DCR map now has most everything on it, but it's hard to discern singletrack from woods road. Some other info available here, including a Wicked Ride map, which is useful for showing some ways to loop the singletrack.

    There are 2 blazed trails. The Bay Circuit Trail is white rectangular blazes - runs from 114 and HP Rd. across Jenkins before leaving HP and entering other openspace lands - useful to find the main way from the east part to the west part of HP. Also a yellow diamond loop that starts near the Jenkins parking lot and loops around Salem Pond.

    HP is probably similar to Wompatuck and Borderland in the skillset required. Lots of rocky semi-technical singletrack - not much in the way of big rocks, hucks, etc.

    I haven't ridden Otis, but I have ridden Borderland and Wompy extensively. I'd say [most of it] is less technical then Borderland, but not as buff and flowey as Wompatuck. Great trails.

    HP is more fast and flowy than technical in my opinion. TON's of varied singletrack that just goes on and on is what HP is all about.
    Hers what you do...
    Grab this years Wicked Ride Of the East map,
    Write down word for word what Ramshackle posted.
    Get after it at HP
