    Riding Areas that are easy on-easy off I-90 in Eastern MA?

    I need to be in Boston for a conference later this month and will be driving from NJ to MA via I-84 to I-90. I may have time for a 3 hour MTB ride on my way home (mid-afternoon on a weekday), but don't want to venture too far from my highway route. I checked the NEMBA site for some ideas, but can't find anything that's easy-off/easy on from I-90. On I-84 in CT there's West Hartford Reservoir, but I've been there before and would like to try something new. Plus, figure best to hit the trails closer to Boston so I make the most of the daylight rather than spend 2 hours first driving to Hartford.

    Some NJ locals recommended Vietnam, Lynn Woods, and Middlesex Fells, but again not exactly on my way. I've ridden trails off I-90 in Western MA (Burbank, Yokun Ridge)...great stuff, but out of my way.

    I'm looking for about 15+ miles...intermediate to advanced terrain preferred. Any ideas appreciated!

    You could ride Callahan State Park in Framingham area. I've never been, but I hear it's a good ride.

    You could also go 95 South and hit Arcadia in Western RI.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Ripmo now.

    Callahan would be a good choice. You won't get 3 hours out if that place though. Most likely 2.

    Park in the lot on Edmonds. Ride the south side from the parking lot then cut across Edmonds about 100 yards west of the parking lot then hit the north side. Check strava out for trails. Would be a pretty good day.
