Thanks in large part to the efforts of NEMBA, the New England Mountain Bike Association, there is no shortage of legal, accessible, developed, and maintained mountain biking in the region. The list we have here highlights some favorites, but it barely scratches the surface of the mountain biking opportunities that surround us. For the most complete and up-to-date list of great places to ride, check out http://www.nemba.org/trails. While you’re there, why not become a member with us and help protect mountain biking for all.
