Mountain biking has been growing in popularity in recent years and trail networks are growing to match the demands. Thanks to the New England Mountain Biking Association (NEMBA) and local mountain biking enthusiasts across Massachusetts, the region has a lot to offer in terms of places to ride.
Massachusetts in particular has a large variety of trail systems, from spots that feature technical rocks like Vietnam Trails in Milford to the smooth flowing trails at Abram’s Rock in Swansea– there is something for everyone if you know where to look.
One of the great things about mountain biking is unless you are seeking a lift-access experience, getting onto the trails is often free or low cost. If you’re looking for a local trail to ride, the NEMBA website has a comprehensive list and many NEMBA chapters and local bike shops offer group rides at popular trail systems.
