Trail Fox West
This is a pretty great downhill section. It has a good flow to it, and if you have the energy when you get near the end you can hop back over onto the snowmobile trail and a quick climb brings you back up and you can go again! I don't understand why you would climb this trail, but I guess you could.

In my experience, the trail was saturated with roots that prohibited me from moving quickly on my hardtail. Even for my friend on his full suspension bike the trail proved to be agonizingly slow and tedious.

Usually referred to as “Hampshire Special,” “Ginn Extra Credit” or just “Extra Credit.” Along with Root Access and Boomerang, this trail does not appear on official maps.

Probably my favorite section of the western trails. You get a little bit of everything here. You can build up some good speed on the straights but be weary of the corners as hikers and trail runners might be here as well.

Doing this from north to south, you will face a reasonably technical choppy granite section covered in robust roots. Momentum is key here so keep cranking. That gives way to a downhill ledge.

Trail Lanzo
Pretty straightforward approach singletrack. Think of it as more an access trail to get to Island or Ragan

Trail Fox West
I have only done this trail in the uphill direction. There are frequent water drainage issues here, it is rare that it is 100% dry. About half way there is a fun skinny bridge section, but there is an alternate route if you aren't feeling it.

Trail Island
A good intro to NE trail biking. If you do the trail CW, Island features a rock wall barrier followed by some tight, rooty single track. After weaving your way through the trail, the last quarter mile opens up for a fast flowy finish.
