This parcel has a heavy mixture of pitch pine, scrub oak and white pine vegetation, along with thick briars and American holly bushes. It was originally formed by a Cape Cod glacial moraine. Trails are wide, with subtle rises and depressions occurring regularly. During spring and summer, there is no regular site maintenance. Thus, paths often become overgrown - thick grass often hide rocks, roots and even fallen small trees, adding a more technical riding aspect.
Old Jail Lane is characterized by copious waterbar steps built into small climbs/descents. One main hilly route runs through the middle with two steeper ascents, along with several smaller ones. Most outlets are marked with map kiosks, but they lack current position markers. Be sure to watch carefully for dog walkers and casual hikers, as the area is located in a residential area.
Doubletrack does exist within the network here. Predominantly old cartways and fire roads, some lead to Seabury Farm, a conservation area off Route 6A near Barnstable-West Elementary School. However, many routes dead end at private property. Hunting is permitted in-season, so please check any posted schedules before embarking on a ride.
