Optional Rocks is a short trail that traverses the spine of a big whaleback with a very steep 12 foot roll-down and small drop-off lower down on the trail. Only if you are comfortable with steep rollers!

Access Info

Optional Rocks starts about fifty yards down from the Holliston Highway on Forest Town Trail, on the right, and spills out further down, around the sharp bend in Forest Town Trail.
