-Trip Report- Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest: The Silver Line (November 2011)

After the leaves have fallen, the Silver Line magically appears.  Pressed from the foliage, the tannins retreat into the soil bringing relief to mountain bikers fumbling along leaf covered trails.

For a few fleeting weeks, it lends a helping hand until the snow claims the forest floor.

Thank you, Silver Line.  Thank you, Mr. November.

You can read my full review of the trails here.

More photos after the jump.

Tall pines, rolling and rocky terrain.  Lowell in a nutshell.

Over or around?  Decisions, decisions.


  1. Looks fun. Pretty crowded though.

  2. It's funny how the parking lot there is always crowded (I had to park way down the street), but I only saw a handful of people on the trails, and only one other biker.

  3. Whatever Nemba rider designed the trails at LDT did a fantastic job!

  4. I'm wholeheartedly in agreement. The trails have excellent flow, present lots of line options and hair raising technical challenges (if you want them).
