    Coming down from Maine next weekend...

    Hey fellow New Englanders....tis the mud season. While we up here in Maine still have a good 6 to 8 inches in the woods, I heard that the greater Boston / Cape trails are shaping up quite nicely.

    I rode Wompatuck about this time last year and had a blast...

    I was hoping to try some different single track this year (nothing against Wompatuck, but I like variety!!)

    I've heard about Otis and Nickerson State park by virtue of perusing, however I'm having a little difficulty finding information about them, especially Otis.

    Does anyone have any trail head suggestions or trail condition reports?

    Thanks guys!

    I rode Otis Saturday, 04/04. The trails where dry and pretty much snow free. I came across snow on the trail two or three times and I'm sure that snow will be gone by next weekend. I parked at a trail-head on Nathin Ellis Hwy right off of MacAurther Blvd.

    The Cape is your only option right now. Check the NEMBA pages?

    Here's a link to some of the trails on Cape and a link to some trail maps

    Also join the Cape Cod NEMBA Group Page on Facebook to get in touch with some local riders if you're looking for a guide.

    Awesome! Thanks for the support boys...Hopefully I'll see some of you guys out there.I'll be sure to support the Mass economy with some post ride burritos and beers.

    Keep a lookout for a White Trek Rumble-Fish and a Silver Trans-Am

    Sadly the best burritos are in Hyannis and the best riding is in Falmouth.

    That's the way it is. Check out Strava segments and Strava Global Heatmap (the latter you don't need an account for). You'll get an idea of it from that. It's got pretty defined boundaries with a confusing network in the middle. Check CCNEMBA page for rides, I may or may not have a bike by then. Also keep in mind Sunday is a trail race at Otis (here).

    Happy Trails, happy to provide some more guidance if you end up in Falmouth.
    Don't buy upgrades; ride up grades.

    Hey all. Thanks for the advice! Ended up riding "trail of tears". Conditions were beyond excellent, and the trails reminded me a lot of what we have here in Maine except with a lot more thorny bushes (3 flats!!!) Super fun and super sore!! Here is some pics from the outing!

    The Chipolte in Braintree ended up being the post ride energy by the way....always top notch grub.
