      West Hill Dam Reserve is a United States Army Corps of Engineers flood control project with a recreational park and wildlife management area located at Uxbridge, Massachusetts. West Hill Dam and Park remain open year round. Outside posted hours of operation, please feel free to park at the gates and walk in to enjoy your park. In West Hill Park the West River widens to form a large, natural swimming hole, known locally as Harrington Pool. Tables and grills are available for picnicking in two areas of the park, one near a beach and one under a grove of pines. The park also offers two sandy beaches, a change house and modern rest rooms. Two picnic shelters on a wooded knoll, with electricity, are available to groups for a small fee. A sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits and accessible playground are nearby.

      The Blackstone Valley Chapter of the New England Mountain Biking Association and the US Army Corps of Engineers have developed a model community partnership to build and maintain an extensive network of mountain biking trails throughout the Park. All-in there is a mix of approximately 10 miles of mountain biking specific and multi-use trails. The trails are typical New England style trails with lots of twists and turns and ups and downs, with access to the trails from a network of double track trails and service roads.

      The trails are all well marked with white on brown name signs at the entrances to all trails and black on white directional arrows on the trails. The trails are named for the military alphabet: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, Foxtrot, Golf, Hotel, India, Juliet and Kilo, and flow logically from one to the other.

      Categorized as IMBA Green and Blue, all of the trails are relatively easy and family/beginner friendly. Where there are more difficult technical trail features, there are "B" lines available.

      Please note that all trails in the Park are classified as multi-use so be aware of, say hi and yield to hikers and other trail users and, especially, the park rangers. Without them, we cannot ride!
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      There are two main parking areas for mountain bikers. The main parking area is on West Hill Dam Road near the Park offices where there are two parking lots. From here one can start on the Alphabet Route which takes in all of the alphabet trails and starts with Alpha which is at the top end of West Hill Dam road. The second Parking area is at the entrance to the park on West Hill Road. This entrance is in the middle of the park, on the road that leads to the beach and Harrington Pool.
