    Easiest Trails at Vietnam

    I am in Milford for the next two weeks for training. I have my cyclocross bike with me and I wanted to know what trails at Vietnam are rideable on a cyclocross bike. I know its a pretty technical trail, but the website says there are some easy trails there. I looked at a map, but it doesn't show trail difficulty.

    Thanks

    I can't think of any trails at Nam I'd want to do on a CX bike. Even the 'easy' stuff is good and bony. Maybe try going in from the College Rock entrance.

    Hope you're good at truing wheels and fixing flats!

    You would be much better off at Upton, Hopkinton SP, or West Hill dam.

    Well, it is a lot smoother now than it was 12 years ago...

    Thanks for the replies. I'll check it out and see what I can do. I've got a 38c tire on the back and a 29 x 1.8 on the front, so it can handle a little more than a typical CX bike. If there are other easier places feel free to let me know.

    It's all rideable. We ride there a lot on rigid singlespeeds. Just stay out of nemba square and you will be fine. Some trails are bonier than others but the xc trails aren't very technical.
