Farm Way is an easy smooth trail with a series of awesome small jumps (all with B-lines). The only serious obstacle is a short swampy stretch of about 15 feet which is underwater in the wet season close to the Eastern or Rail Trail end. Farm way can be done in both directions but is a great fast downhill towards the Farm end. Near the bottom there is a great big Rock Ride with ramps up and down it. When you get to the horse circle, follow the trail right through to the far corner where the trail continues around to the Teeter Totters. Farm Way is a relatively smooth trail with a few rocks here and there and a few nice jumps. Fast and flowy is the word. And if you decide to do it going uphill, it is an easy climb.

Access Info

You can get to Farm Way directly from the Cedar Street Parking area. Just be aware of the flood-prone swampy area near the start. The alternative is to park at College Rock, come down College Rock Run to the horse circle where you turn right onto Farm Way to do it uphill. Or you can come down First Base to the Top of Farm Way if you want to do it downhill. You can also come up Top Down to the top of Farm Way or down Beaver Brook Way or Dennis' Playground to the Teeter Totters at the lower end of Farm Way.
