    Found a Freeriding Ghost town on Robin Hill Chelmsford Ma, any info ?

    out rambling yesterday and went all over robin hill and found

    -abandoned cabin
    -many trails signs up
    -many trail signs down
    -many trail signs in progress
    -some dated 2010
    -names like ridgeline, naples, laconia...etc
    -mailbox

    all sorts of trails and directional signs, getting buried by blowdowns and lack of maintenance. Oh, and lots of berms and jumps.

    it looks like a freaking freeride festival was once going on up there, who did this and then eventually moved on ? or is someone jonesing to -re-open- it, because I would volunteer some time raking and clearing brush, but won't do it as a solo project (cuz I suck)


    currently my interest in this place is doing hill repeats up it, but it used to have a trail system, now it is mostly overgrown


    anyone have any knowledge of the history of the freeriding here ?

    You can probably dig around on the old Busted Spoke site (speaking of ghost towns) and come up with some history. I remember a few guys working over there regularly bitd.

    The town did not appreciate all of the hard work.
