      The Braintree and Holbrook Town Forests abut each other.

      The trails are, for the most part, challenging. You'll find a few fun flowing singletracks but for the most part you'll be dealing with rocks, roots, a few sharp climbs and lots of wooden bridges.

      For a comparison, think Ames Nowell State Park, which happens to be only a few miles away.

      I can't express how much fun these trails are to ride. You'll have to experience them for yourself.

      Expect to discover over 15 miles of trails here.

      And I promise you, no matter how many trails you see on the maps. You'll always find more.
