      Rocky Woods in Taunton has over 30 miles of tight, twisty fairly technical singletrack. There are far too many trails to ride in one day. Some of the trails can be muddy and a few are overgrown with vegetation. But in many places local trail advocates have built wooden bridges to get you through the mud. You can ride here all year long save for the early spring when many of the trails will be too muddy. Rocky Woods is also home to some good rock climbing.

      It would be very easy to get lost in Rocky Woods but fortunately many of the trails are marked. And by following the colored markers you'll get a good introduction to the area. While most of the trails are singletracks you'll find a few old woods roads too. If you follow them out to local streets you'll get an idea of just how big this area is. Expect to spend more than a few days finding all the trails here. And bring a copy of this map. It will help a lot.

      The singletracks here were in large part made by motorcyclists. Expect to see them out on the trails.
