This state forest offers 16.4 miles of challenging ATV trails that consists mostly of loose and chunk rock, mud puddles, tree roots and steep uphill and downhill sections. The staging area is large and trail maps can be found at the kiosk.

Swimming, boating and camping can be found at nearby Lake Benedict but note that there is no direct trail access from there so machines must be hauled to and from the staging area. The campground is open year round but reservations are required May through October which can be done online or by calling (877) 422-6762.

Wildlife consists of black bear, deer and bobcats. A small parking fee is charged from May through Labor Day and must be paid at the Beartown State Forest Ranger Station since there is no self pay kiosk at the staging area. During the winter months the trails are open to snowmobiles.

Note: A permit is now required to ride at Beartown State Forest. There is no fee, but a maximum of 75 permits will be issued each day. Permits can be reserved by calling (413) 358-2172 or via e-mail at ohv-permits@state.ma.us

This wooded area in southeastern Massachusetts has just a few miles of fairly easy and flat single track.

The main loop has the usual rocks and roots but nothing too challenging. This is a decent place to bring kids and beginners since there are just enough rocks, roots and mud to make it interesting but very few hills, nothing steep, and nothing is without a bypass. Note that the parking space is very limited (park curbside on the road across from the water tower or on the dirt in front of the radio tower). This is only about a 30 minute to 1 hour ride at best so don't plan a big trip here.

This state forest boasts 25 miles of singletrack motorcycle-only trails that range from moderate to very difficult with some nice forest scenery.

The area is divided into two parts, a western section and an eastern section. The trails on the western side can be accessed directly from the corner of the staging area and are mostly smooth and very fun single track with banked turns, ups and downs, very few rocks and some bridge crossings. The eastern trails are across the road (Bell Rock Road) from the staging area and these trails are rockier and more challenging.

There are many parking entrances but there is only one designated motorcycle staging area. The parking area near the ranger station offers some picnic areas, restrooms, and a wading pool but bring some spray because the mosquitoes can get pretty thick in the evening hours. During the winter months snowmobiles are permitted on the trails.

This place is worth the drive, so be sure to say thanks to the Pilgrim Sands Trail Riders for maintaining these awesome trails. And although the forest is rumored to be haunted, especially The Ledge, we were having too much fun to notice any paranormal activity! Any true motorcycle trail rider will enjoy this ride.

This could eventually be the site of a brand new indoor motocross facility offering 24/7 access to members and including shower facilities, locker rooms, spray wash, fuel station riders lounge, dining facility and parts repair shop and bike storage units.

Membership would be required and would be limited to about 1,000 riders so keep this on the radar. As of 2011 the developers were still working through some obstacles but we are keeping our fingers crossed that this project will become a reality.

Located in northwestern Massachusetts, this area has about 16 miles of ATV trails that wind through a mixed hardwood forest. Most of the trails are fast and smooth and are marked with orange and yellow triangle blazes on the trees.

A daily riding permit is required which can be obtained by visiting the ranger station on Cascade Street and Shamrock Blvd but there is no access to the trails at this location as all of the trails here are for hiking or mountain biking use. Balance Rock and Potter Mountain Staging areas are the only two parking areas that provide direct access to the ATV trails (Balance Rock has plenty of parking for larger trailers while Potter Mountain is better suited for smaller vehicles).

The forest offers three campgrounds to choose from but machines must be hauled to and from the staging areas. The Lulu Brook Day Use Area has numerous BBQ grills and picnic tables. Forest hours are from sunrise to 8pm, year-round. Snowmobiles are permitted during winter months.

**Note: A permit is now required to ride the trails at Pittsfield State Forest. There is no fee but a maximum of 50 permits will be issued per day. Permits can be reserved by calling (413) 358-2172 or via e-mail at ohv-permits@state.ma.us

This deep forest has about 8 miles of rocky single track trails. There is nothing too challenging however these trails will keep you mostly in first or second gear. The staging area has direct trail access to the western section however you will need to cross the pavement (Taunton Street) to access the eastern side.

Old stone walls can be found on the eastern side, a reminder of the areas farming history. This area is patrolled heavily by both local police and state forest rangers, so current registration is a must.

There is a lot of single track here, much more than you would expect, and it is easy to get disoriented. One trick is to remember that Route 495 (East/West) and Taunton Street (North/South) make a cross right through the center of the area so you should at least be able to tell what quadrant you are in. Treat any other paved roads that you come across as boundaries and you'll be in good shape. Beware of hunters during hunting season (no hunting on Sundays).
