The portion that has recently been burnt over, south of Three Cornered Pond Road to the power lines has a lot of dead pine brush branches sticking into the trail, not terrible but not pleasant either. I was really glad I had shin guards on but wished I had long sleeves. My arms got really scratched up. Definitely need eye protection in there too.

Great trail to ride little over grown and some steeper up and down hills with roots. But after the hills soon sailing easy trail will be coming back and trying to get the whole trail done in a quicker time

Brief bike trail through a remote pocket of the forest. Not too sandy or rocky.

One of the best trails in Myles Standish... mostly single track, right, twisty, pass through an occasional meadow and by a pond. Some nice up’s and down’s. Very enjoyable.

One of the most beautiful and enjoyable single track rides in Massachusetts... tight, twisty, mostly hard pack pine needles, a few rooty sections... all right along the shore of a picturesque pond.

A little bit overgrown but not too bad. Pretty easy to navigate. The trail has blue markings on the trees along the route

This is not a good trail for mountain biking for two reasons. First, motorcycles regularly ride this trail (although illegal) which has caused a ton of soil erosion - softening the soil, exposing large rocks and creating deep, narrow trails that are difficult to pedal because there is not enough lateral clearance. Second, the trail is not designed for mountain biking - several of the inclines can only be climbed by the most skilled and most fit riders under the best of conditions. I strongly advise avoiding this trail for mountain biking - there are better options.

Lots of loose sand in the low spots, and very narrow in places. Some nice pine needle carpet areas that make it worth the tough parts. Good bit of horse poop too.

Not too challenging. Pine Hills is not far from Myles Standish and has some more advanced trails.
