      From hilly rugged singletracks, to flowing smooth trails, to difficult technical singletracks, to summer swimming at Crow Hill Pond, Leominster has everything that a mountain biker could desire. A ride here will acquaint you not only with a variety of riding conditions but will serve to showcase a lot of Wachusett NEMBA's trailwork, including bridges and trail stabilization projects.

      To see which trails are the most popular, on the map above, hit the “Trail Style” tab to open the drop down list, then hit “Popularity". The trails colored red are ridden the most while the trails colored green is at the other end.

      Leominster State Forest, managed by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), is a 4,500-acre parcel of forested land, located in the five towns of Westminster, Princeton, Leominster, Fitchburg and Sterling in North Central Massachusetts. The forest is conveniently located off of Rte 2 (exit 2Cool , is an easy drive for local residents, and convenient from the Boston and Worcester communities. Parking is available along Rte. 31 in several areas. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, parking fees are charged in the paved parking lots.

      The forest offers recreational opportunities year round, ranging from mountain biking and swimming in the summer to cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Nature lovers will enjoy the numerous hiking trails, the prolific mountain laurel bloom in late June, early July and the opportunity to observe all kinds of wildlife.

      The trails are multi-use and mountain bikers should please yield.

      Access Info:
      Directions:
      From Route 2 take exit 28 and head south. After a couple of miles you'll see the forest's headquarters on your right, and shortly thereafter the main parking area near Crow Hill Pond on your left. This is a good place to park if you're bringing family members who might like to picnic or swim while you ride. However, many people prefer the dirt parking lot about a half mile south of that at the intersection of Rocky Pond Road.
