Description

The Delaney Wildlife Management area consists of 577 acres of conservation land originally designed as a flood control project.

It's frequently referred to as the Delaney Flood Control Project it's managed by the Massachusett Department of Fisheries and Wildlfie.

The trails are really fun.

The best place to park is on Finn Road in Harvard. From here you'll find trails on both sides of the road. 

The area north of Finn Road is larger and consists of some very smooth flat trails and also intermediate and a few advanced trails. I'd recommend that beginners and families try these trails first.

Alternative parking for the flattest/easiest of these trails starts at the boat ramp parking lot.

The area south of Finn Road is more technical, though not overly so. You'll enjoy riding over a lot of roots, but there are no big drops.

One trail has a steep downhill/uphill at a bridged stream crossing. A few trails end in dead ends at private property boundaries, but most loop around.

The best maps of the area as well as the best description and some great pictures of the area are on this PAGE.

Whether you're looking for a scenic fun ride or moderatly technical challenges you'll find it at Delaney.
