    Bonking ... not feelin' well Georgetown Rowley State Forest

    First time here today, did 8 miles or so. Very impressed with the single track, found it very "Willowdale" like.

    Thought the parking was tiny compared to other parks.

    July 4th, thought it would be crowded, only me, 3 other bikes and 2 horses on the trails.

    The trail/road over rt. 95 was cool looking loaded with graffiti messages.

    Enjoyed my time here.

    You can get 40 miles by connecting 5 areas there. Willowdale, GR, cleveland/ hood pond, moon hill and some other stuff up there.

    I think moon hill is over by Bradley Palmer.

    Can you link to the route that would get 40 miles in this area? Any chance you have it on Strava?

    Not a strava guy. Just look at some of the DCR maps or on our FB page, Nemba, places to ride.

    Not familiar with the area, but finally decided to try out Willowdale for the 1st time this past Sunday. Drove down from Dover, NH for a change up. Really nice place and was able to find just a few technical loops off of Chevette. Went back in for round 2 and flew around the perimeter and ended up at the Gulf course. It did have a couple of wet/mud spots, as to be expected, but mostly dry in the interior/hills. No maps at the trailhead, so just self-navigated around for a solid 90-minute ride. Was hoping for it to be bigger, but will have to check out Rowley and others close by to add ride time! Good stuff Mass, whats next Lowell-Dracut?

    Willowdale trail map

    https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=1...9011&layers=CN

    I use this open cycle map for Willowdale, it shows most of the single track trails that most like here. Especially Thunder Road, and the squiggly one just to the right of it, I think it's called Tornado.

    Thanks for the map of Willowdale. Looks like there are more linkable trails by crossing 2-3 different roads to expand the ride. To the south looks good!
