Besides the serene hiking trails at Borderland State Park, New England Mountain

Bike Association has built a wonderfully challenging mountain bike loop labeled the

"NEMBA Loop." This trail is not for the faint of heart. After speaking with a few

NEMBA members, few have ridden the whole trail successfully. Expect to get off

your bike several times to inspect how to ride the tricky lines on this trail.

Don't expect a lot of elevation change. Instead expect many huge slabs of slick

rock and some of the most technical, sketchy rock gardens around. Also expect a

few drop offs as well as steep step ups onto boulders. This is not for the novice

rider and it will challenge even the most experienced riders.

If you are looking for less streneous riding, stick to the fire roads that wind

through the park. Most other trails at Borderland are open to bikes, unless

otherwise noted. The other trails are not easy by any means; most are littered

with rock gardens. Overall, expect to push yourself at Borderland, no matter how

experienced you are.


Take Rte. 128 south to Rte. 95 south (towards Providence). Take exit 10 (Sharon,

Walpole and Coney Street). Take a left at the end of the ramp and follow this road,

two or three miles to the traffic lights in Sharon Center. Go straight thru this

intersection and immediately bear right onto Pond St. Follow Pond St. for 1-1/2

miles until you come to a traffic rotary. Go half way around the rotary and

continue onto Massapoag Ave. for three miles to the park entrance, on your left.
