      With most of the trails bordering the 157-acre Ashland Reservoir, Ashland State Park offers some calm and shimmering scenery. Due to their proximity to the waters’ edge, however, the trails provide a novice-level of smooth and flowy dirt equally mixed with unforgiving roots and rocks that will make you appreciate your suspension (leading to the moniker “Bashland”).

      The 470-acre park’s primary riding is single and double track bouncing around the reservoir in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction, as well as crossing the dam. Frequent short single track off-shoots offer some steep, brief climbs and the chance to add 2-3 exploratory miles to the 4.5-mile loop that provides a surprisingly pleasant technical challenge interspersed with smooth dirt. Featuring a large waterfront and utilities for picnics/ BBQs, the park is very popular with dog walkers and families in the nicer weather.

      The best place to park is at the Town's Community Center. Then head east on Ashland State Park Road.
