      Burrage Pond is a 1,638 acre wildlife management area. It was created in 2002 when the state purchased land used for cranberry bogs. This means 90% of the trails are completely flat double track which makes for very easy mountain biking. It's the perfect place to introduce newer riders to the sport, or for families who's children are riding on small wheeled bikes.

      The main park is completely open with a large pond on one side and bogs on the other making for great scenery. Some trails go into the woods where they turn into narrower single track. The woods trails are still flat and smooth with few roots, rocks or muddy areas to deal with. There are at least 15 miles of trail. This makes for a great beginner riding area.

      However, there's a vast network of trails linking into Burrage Pond. After a ride or two go exploring. You won't be disappointed and you'll find many more miles of trails.

      This is a great park for viewing wildlife. Birders come from all over to check out the birds, wood ducks, geese and Ospreys. A bald eagle has been known to visit a few years. Bass fishing is popular in the ponds. Lots of turtles including snappers abound in the marshy areas and deer can be seen in the early morning.

      Being a wildlife management area, hunting is allowed. Check with the MA hunting schedule and take proper precautions. Deer and duck hunting are especially popular here.
