Endicott College - Trail, Beverly, Massachusetts

Endicott College - Trail, Beverly, Massachusetts

DESCRIPTION

Mostly beginner to intermediate. But if you want some serious technical, head down the trail straight and keep making lefts as you come to them. You'll end up going by a little brook. Don't screw up though, there's only one way to fall--in the brook! Real steep hill to your right and a real narrow trail. The rest of the terrain is either up hill or downhill. No flat sections really. I can only really think of one or two hills that are steep enough to be a challenge to get up. Also, if you come to a small flat, clear area that looks like a camping site, try going to the end of it and riding up those rocks at the end. Up and over and down to your left and back to the campsite can impress your friends--especially when they see what's behind the rocks! Lots of fun to blast through these trails. A bunch of places to get some nice 'air' off of perfectly slanted rocks. If you get lost: These trails interweave quite a bit. There's only four tail exits that I've found, each at some road. The general idea is to print out that Yahoo map and keep it in your pocket. You can follow the roads back to Tall Tree Dr. pretty easily. Because, if you do get lost, just keep following any given trail straight and you'll eventually end up at an exit.

Lots of fun to blast through. So much interweaving. If you've done all the trails (takes about 1.5 hours) try doing the same trails going the opposite direction. YOU WON'T BE DISSAPOINTED! These are the types of trails where you can keep going, and going, and going...

Lots of big puddles that are fun to ride through and get your friends on the sides soaking wet. Also, there's an area where the water flows through the trail--hop it, IF YOU CAN!

For some reason, no matter how little rain we get, there's lots of mud in these trails. So if you're into that sort of thing, go nuts.

Go in and take your first right. Now just keep going and follow your gut as to wich way to go. All the trails that way are a blast. Never seen any hikers or even any other bikers. GO FAST!

Yo brodukes, heres the deal with Endicott. Brass balls is pretty trecherous but you dont need a decked out whip to tame these woods, in fact you dont need a DH rig on most any trail. A lot of people got these big FS bikes but they really can't ride it to the max. Take ur fly-weight XC bike or old school rig and bring it to Edicott. Look for the Rock Trail for some gnarly drops, or if you like swimming, the River Trail.

just recently there has been some major construction in Beverly, unfortunately they found our beloved Tall Tree trails. they've started to develop homes on the area.. you can still ride in there but the opening section was torn down and me and Nelly and a bunch of other mt bikers from here have to build a new entrance.
if you do decide to ride here at Tall Tree, my friends and I are working on a "North western" section. You know boardwalks, teeter totters, stuff like that. it's hard to find but if you get there its pretty fun even though its far from done. If you can find the end of Brass Balls, the giant rock...go to the top of that rock. there is a small path leading to your left that goes up a hill . at the top of this small hill there is a stone wall with a short "home made" bridge going over a hole/gap. thats the entrance. From there I'm quite confident that you'll find these things. So have fun, and if you want to help us out with these things let me know or Nelly([email protected]).

Some pretty good trails, not too many drops exept for the rock trail. Rock trail is pretty technical. the rest isnt that bad. i can ride probly the whole thing and im only like 13.

Customer Service

Go in straight and take your first left. when you get to a fork, take the right and go to the next fork. when you get to it take a left. somewhere in there to the left you will see a small opening with a rock. thats the rock trail. ride it!

Well I live one street away from it so its not a hard commute. Great riding. My friends and I build up big drops and some North Shore in there. Just explore. There are many hidden trails that are extremely fun. Not too much going up. A little, but theres more down so its all good.

Customer Service

Right when you go in take a left. Then keep riding, next fork take a right, next fork take a left, go straight until you see what kind of looks like a trail. Its called the rock trail. Two great six footers and a descent called brass balls, im there EVERY weekend so you'll probably see me. I ride a specialized BIG HIT DH. But if you pass the rock trail entrance take the fire road which is your next left. All down for like 5-10 mins. Its sweet.
