    New question here. Beginner rider going to Southeast MA next week, looking for a couple of spots.

    Hey y'all,

    I'll be going up to East Bridgewater next week to visit family, and I plan to bring my new bike for the week. I'm from the area, but haven't lived there in a long time, and never rode up there.

    I was hoping to get the name of a couple of spots that are good for a beginner without a lot of technical skills. I remember the various state parks in the area; Borderland, Wompatuk, Ames Nowell etc. but I don't really remember what the trails are like there.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Adams Farm in Walpole would be perfect. Lots of nice ST with few rocks or big climbs. Go to the NEMBA site and then the riding Zone.

    Not technical at all
    But a lot of twists and turns and climbs

    I actually live in east Bridgewater, there are a few sweet places. The satucket trails. Burrage state reservation in hanson has miles of double track. Duxbury state forest is always a blast.

    I rode wompy today as well. Around 330

    It's got some technical areas

    For duxbury park on mayflower in the lot and head into the trail where the signs are and take the first trail head on the left

    There are lots of turns in there so pay attention

    Worse case, and I've done this, take the road back to the car
