    BBM,

    I would say Harold Parker perfectly fits the description of "intermediate XC techy stuff", print out the Mass DCR map, you'll cross enough roads so that you won't get TOO lost.

    As far as closer to Lowell: Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsborough has some great trails, though I would not classify them as "techy", at least compared to H.P. Russell Mill in Chelmsford is a great XC ride, with some man-made log rides thrown in.

    All three spots are well ridden, you'll likely catch up with a group that knows the trails.

    Is it actually dry out? Has it not been raining all week?

    Only poorly designed/routed trails have problems with the recent wet weather. Most trails that were designed for mtn biking drain well and don't suffer ruts or increased erosion when wet.

    Of course, there are plenty of trails that were not designed or routed properly, and those may or may not be left in a rideable condition after extended wetness.

    Lowell-Dracut was very well designed and not only drains well, but stays firm even when wet.
    I can barely get my mouth around it.
