Looking to get a small group of regulars together to ride Ashland state park this spring/ summer.
Starting the search early as Iím not sure if thereís an interest.
I may be able to work something out with a horseless rider.
Just comment below and I will start a group on fb or via email

I would be interested bringing the aforementioned AWB youngster to either Ashland or Rocky Narrows or Noon Hill on a semi regular basis for additional exposure if there are people joining your group from the Franklin/Millis area and have an open slot.

There is nothing in Ashland except lots of people and lots of loose dogs that cant be controlled by their owners. Its ok for humans but I wouldnt take a horse there. Hopkinton State Park is more suitable or Callahan in Framingham. Or the trails in Sherborn, Dover, etc.

Pezk is right. I have written that same thing on here before. My dog was even attacked once there. It is a haven for professional dog walkers with no supervision from the State. Lots of loose, out of control dogs. Avoid!!!!!!! Go to Upton State Forest instead.....

Its not always professional dog walkers but plain old dog owners who dont know what training is and could care less who let there dogs run loose and cant control them

Does anyone have any feedback on Douglas State Forest and/or the Trunkline Trail that runs through Douglas? Tons of loose dogs with ignorant owners?

Not dogs as much as ATV's and dirt bikes that are not supposed to be there.(Douglas)

We ride at Douglas often and so far no dog problems. There are also way less atv activity than several years ago. We did have a couple on a dirt bike but could hear them coming from a good distance away. Miles of trails but use hoof boots if your horse is barefoot. Go on a few BSRTA rides and youíll find quite a few nice places to ride in the area.
