    Something like Trail of Tears near Rt 128

    I've been riding Trail of Tears all summer and love the fast flowing XC type of riding.
    Anything within the Rt128 belt? I've been to Willowdale, but would like some other suggestions

    I live in Burlington and ride the other area alot, but only a couple of times in the LLF.
    But, it's not a Trail of Tears.
    I might have to take another look as I haven't been in there in a while.

    I live in Dennis during the late spring through early fall. I'm 20 minutes from TOT, so I'm spoiled. Now that I'm back in Burlington I'm just trying to find something similar.

    If your in Burlington, hit up Land Locked Forest. Then drive to the Fells and ride those trails, just beware of the "nazi" Friends of the Fells pricks who don't like riders...
    Next on your list should be HP and Lynn woods. Check em all out, you will find something you like, lots of options.

    cool, my cousin lives in marston mills right on tot, so i go there a lot in the spring. i avoid it in the summer tourist season, road traffic, crossing the bridges. might be time to go back. i dont know of any more places than what has already been mentioned. lowell/ dracut maybe

    I would think Lynn Woods and Harold Parker are quite a bit more technical than my recollection of TOT. I tend to think Willowdale is the closest comparison near 128.

    Dogtown is out there along 128 too - but I think you'll find it fairly technical too depending on the loop you ride.

    Other rides along 128 (up through the North Shore) include Greenwood Ave, Pine Street, Chebacco Woods, and even Ravenswood park. All have something to offer but none have as much flow as TOT or Willowdale.

    There are some great trails along the 128 corridor, but they are nothing along the lines of Trail Of Tears.

    Your best bet is Willowdale or Russell Mills for TOT likeness.

    Hey Greg,
    I've only been to Russell Mill once, a couple of years ago. Love the pump track.
    Definitely going to give it a try.
    I'm back at the Cape this weekend to get my TOT fix. Especially just after Brian (JRA)
