Fun trail with some light "swamp tech" mixed in.

Trail Quebec
An absolutely superb flowy XC trail. There are no features on Quebec but for all out fast pedaling fun this trail is very well done. Twisty but not tight so speed is carried around each turn. Good use of the space without trying to cram in too much trail, which would ruin any flow.

Trail Oscar
The Lima, Mike and Oscar trails are some of the best fast & flowy Intermediate single track you can find in eastern Massachusetts - or almost anywhere in New England. Kudos to NEMBA for the design and maintenance of these trails.

The double hump bridge is a great new feature to Mike.

A good warm up trail for the larger trail system. Twisty, turny.

Trail November
Trail name has been changed from East Woodland Extension to November to better differentiate it from the East Woodland trail.

Washouts on a couple of corners prior to the bridge. Marking here for GPS location and future fix. Deadfall looks to be a little sparse in this area but we might be able to find something reporter

Tree down adjacent to the washed out corner. We could use this particular tree as a backer for shoring up that corner reporter
