      The Bird Street Conservation Land is part of Stoughton's Memorial Conservation Land and is about 675 acres. Additionally, the Ames Rifle Club Trail, which is a stand-alone trail in Stoughton but a great connector, is included in this region. These are all fun and easy to intermediate trails that all levels of riders can enjoy. This can be a fantastic fat biking area as it's fairly level and not much hiking use in the winter. Many of the trails are marked with colored markers blue, green, yellow and orange although we could not find a corresponding map. There is a super interesting history in this region that includes the Myron Gilbert quarries, the Roy Robinson Loop Trail, as well as the Storybook Trail, a 2008 Eagle Scout project that has been well maintained. These trails are maintained by SEMASS NEMBA and the Stoughton Conservation Commission. In all there are about 10 miles of trails to explore. There is not too much technical riding but the region does include a challenging 50' skinny bridge as well as a short Ledge trail for the expert riders. This is a great area to ride if you know a new mountain biker that wants to work on their skills.

      The Ames Rifle Descent Trail is an outlier in the Stoughton area so it is included here. A short and easy road ride by Ames Long Pond from Palisades Circle Parking Area gets you to the trailhead where there is parking for 10 or more vehicles. Most people ride this trail west to east but it's actually a great trail in both directions. This trail gets you close to the Rattlesnake Hill area of Sharon (Conservation Land acquired in 2019) which can connect you to Borderland State Park & King Philip for even more tremendous riding options.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: Conservation Reserve

You can park 10 or more cars on the southern end of the Ames Rifle Descent Trail.
