    Middlesex Fells. It's picturesque and accessible close to I93.

    I believe for the last Summer games they actually took some open fields that had the vertical and spacing they needed and created a course. It seemed to include natural as well as man-made obstacles. I don't follow it close enough to know if they would prefer previously existing trails.

    +1 - Blue Hills. It's in Boston. Easy, large venue at the base of Big Blue, but...it won't happen here. If I'm wrong, you can have my old Kenda Neveroll 26" Tubeless Tire.

    the old 24 hours of adrenalin at holiday farm in dalton would be a great course. 8 mile loop with a 2 mile climb and 2 mile descent, alot of great singletrack combined with the long up and down. how that race ever went away i'll never know. an absolute travesty. best course in new england, imo. makes great glenn look like one huge MEH. well, it is anyway.

    First off the Olympics aren't coming to Boston. In the off chance they were to come to Boston I would imagine the venue would be somewhere in Western Mass. Neither Blue Hills or the Fells have the amount of space needed to hold an event of that size.
