Please do not shortcut the many switchbacks on this loop. We do not want "alternate" trails to become the norm.

The Blue loop consists of typically old school New England type trails including narrow, tree lined trails, rock features and rock gardens all tied together by twisty single track. The best flow will be found when following the direction marked with Blue triangular blazes but,in either direction,you will be challenged.

This trail is an awesome combo of flow and tech, with some athletically-challenging climbing thrown in for good measure. Some of the technical features are among the toughest in the trail network, and it will leave you wanting to hit them repeatedly until you can clear them all.

It’s hard to follow at times as many trail markings (blue triangles) have fallen off the trees.

Great trail with a little of everything. A great way to end a long ride in Mendon Town Forest. Make sure to ride this top to bottom (not bottom to top) in order to get the best experience.
