Lynn Woods is probably one of the most unique places to mountain bike in Massachusetts, and some might say the East coast. Some of the most technical terrain around is located here. If you are looking for rocks [or should I say boulders] to huck, drop, roll, or push that full suspension rig to the limit, come to Lynn Woods. You won't be disappointed.

NOTE: The summary, description and maps for Lynn Woods focuses on the North-side of Walden Pond, know as the freeride section of the park. Proper gear and riding skills are needed. Beginners should not attempt.

Description:

Lynn Woods is a huge park with over 2000+ acres. The trail network is split into two distinct areas, naturally separated by Walden Pond.

To the south of the pond you will find more XC riding, featuring a lot of fireroads and singletrack, that can be very confusing to navigate. Highlights of the south side are definitely the stone tower and Dungeon Rock. If you ride this side go explore, you won't be disappointed. This side of the park is mostly intermediate trails, but beginners should do just fine on the fireroads.

To the north side of Walden Pond you will find some of the most technical terrain around. This side is littered with rocks, rocks, and more rocks. Some reaching proportions equal to the size of a small house. Rollers, hucks, drops, and rock gardens will keep you on your toes and keep you coming back for more. Trust me, if you are into technical riding, and have the chops, you should be riding Lynn Woods.

Parking:

Parking is easiest at the ball fields located at Great Woods Rd, Lynn, MA 01904 (42.493067, -70.978012) though I do know some group rides do launch from the Route 1 side of the park, you'd would have to connect with those groups to know from where.
