      Maudslay has wide trails for biking, walking, xc skiing, and horseback riding. It borders the Merrimac River, so you can walk or ride along the western side of the park. Best to go early in the morning. Quite a few people jog thru the park. It also has some nice hills. All the trails are well kept. They fill all holes with bark mulch. Riding is best early in the morning when the park opens at 8:00AM as that is when the trails are least crowded. The park also has a greenhouse area with a nice maze of low cut hedges, but don't ride your bike here.
      There is a kettle hole area refered to as the Punch Bowl. You may notice a path which runs about a forty foot down and up. This is not a trail; it is an erosion problem caused by park users who have not stayed on marked trails. Currently, this area is fenced off for habitat restoration. The park management and NEMBA request that you never ride in any area that is not officially open to bikes.

      Bike trails are marked on trail maps that are available in the brochure box by the bulletin board in the parking area and at park headquarters.

      The park does not open until 8AM and closes at sunset. Anyone in the park before or after park hours is trespassing. The park is open year however from November through March, a portion of the park is closed to protect the wintering habitat of bald eagles.

      Anyone violating park regulations could incur a $50 fine. The goal of the park is for the park to be enjoyed by all of our visitors and it is important for the protection of the resource and everyone's safety and enjoyment that everyone abide by the rules.
