      Consisting of many expansive and diverse trails, Blackstrap Hill Preserve and its adjacent networks are popular among local riders. The bulk of the trails in the area are located between Blackstrap Road and the Turnpike. This area encompasses the trails with features that aggressive riders will enjoy: Berms, flowy turns, drops and optional doubles can be found here. Across Blackstrap Rd, there is some very loamy, flowy, and fun singletrack continuing into the North Falmouth Community Forest. The network also continues across the turnpike where some flatter cross country trails can be found. The map from the Falmouth Land Trust Website is not fully inclusive of all of these trails, but using the Strava segment explorer will help you discover the bulk of the unmapped trails. Definitely a place to check out if you are into more aggressive all-mountain style riding, but also worth the trip for the cross country trails that are mixed in throughout.

      Access and parking information information from Falmouth Land Trust website:

      From the south: a parking area is located on the east side of Blackstrap Road, 1/4 mile north of Mountain Road. A kiosk with a trail map is down the hill from the parking area.

      From the north: an access road off Hurricane Road, just west of the Maine Turnpike bridge, leads to a parking area and information kiosk.

      From the west: a trailhead is located just north of the intersection of Babbidge Road and Blackstrap Road. Park along the road near the trailhead. The property can also be accessed from the utility corridor just north of the intersection of Blackstrap Road and Mast Road.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
