      The Saxon Hill trail network in Essex is a classic. The trails are characterized as classic smooth and flowy singletrack. This immensely popular network is home to the Flo, FreeFall, and Extendo trails. Extendo is a beginner trail constructed by the FOTW Trail Crew in conjunction with students from the Center for Technology in Essex. Flo is a local classic that offers multiple loops within itself that are appropriate for a variety of users and skill levels. FreeFall is a varied jump trail with multiple lines that cater to advanced and expert riders. The trails at Saxon Hill wind through municipal property—many thanks to the Town of Essex for their generous access.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
