The Town Forest Trail is a fun and easy fire road/double track trail that rides like a superb flowy single track trail. It starts at the upper end of the Holliston Highway, at the intersection with the Adams Lot Trail, from where it curls down the hill in a fast, smooth swoop, parallel to Holliston Highway, to rejoin Holliston Highway about halfway down towards the Charles River Trail. The Forest Town trail is relatively easy with quite a bit of downhill and a few short climbs as it makes its way back towards the Holliston Highway. An important part of the network, the Forest Town Trail gives access to a number of trails. Going down from the Holliston Highway, the first trail on the left, just after the start, is Sneaky Quickie, followed by Optional Rocks on the right. After the sharp curve in the trail Optional Rocks rejoins the trail. Halfway up the first short climb on he right is the lower access to Sudden Impact. At the top of the short climb Tonto turns off to the left. This is also where The Skinny Log is found. From here the Town Forest Trail winds its way to the lower start of Deer Way on the right and a little further down to a narrow bridge over a boggy area. Just after the bridge, Cross Cut turns off to the left and links into the half-way point of Middle Sister. After the Crosscut turn-off the Town Forest Trail gently climbs back to The Plaza intersection on the Holliston Highway.
