      FROM NEMBA: The trails at Hale seem almost contradictory. On the one hand you can cruise around on the marked loops and enjoy a peaceful, scenic, intermediate level ride. Venture onto the many unmarked singletracks and you will subject yourself to some pretty extreme and difficult trails. They're fun to ride and interesting enough to keep you coming back for more.

      ABOUT HALE: Hale is a private, non-profit education organization that manages 1,137 acres of adventure in Westwood and Dover, Massachusetts. Founded in 1918, its flagship programs include Hale Day Camp, Hale Summer Club, Education & Adventure, Hale Outdoor Learning Adventures, and Intrepid Academy at Hale. Hale also hosts public events including a popular local music series (Live at Hale) and yoga classes (Deep Roots). Facility rentals are available, too.
