F. Gilbert Hills State Forest (Foxboro)

Foxboro is open year-round, making it a great place to ride during the winter months. As you get further around the loop (riding counter-clockwise) the trail gets harder and harder, until you reach a two mile stretch of continuous rock gardens and hills which will challenge any rider. As a reward, after the last bridge, the trail races back to the parking lot on a fast downhill road with some fun jumps.
