    3 miles sounds about right. I did both sections in about an hour so you should have no trouble finishing in time.

    They are rebuilding the bridge on Boundary street, during the day the parking lot is full of workers trucks. Afterhours might be better. Or you can park on rt 20 at the pull-off right before the Jehovas Witness church and ride it the other way.

    Rode the Coyote trail last night. Went across rte 20 to the AHS fields (bird something or other trail) and back. GPS said 4 miles about 35 minutes (still getting my legs/lungs in shape)
    Nice trail, like wa-loaf said not very tecnical but a few small obstacles that made it fun. No real climbs either which is exactly what I was looking for. A couple of nice switchbacks.

    Saw some deer during the ride 3 of them in one of the open fields. Hoping to do the same ride Friday AM or late afternoon.

    When and if you get out on a weekend post it up here or PM me and we can try to meet up. If you ever see a black 4runner at the trail head on Boundry St then I am out there sucking wind somewhere on the trail.

    FYI if you wound up at the athletic fields you took a wrong turn. The trail wraps around the HS and either ends up in the front parking lot or on Bartlet St. The round trip would be more like 6 miles.

    I went out again, same loop, and I apparently never went on Birdsong Trail. I stopped again at the AHS Cross Country trail. Where I stopped I could either go left or rigth (looking at the fields) Whateveer I was on was pretty flat and fun. I am going to start tracking it with Runkeeper on my phone and see what it looks like.

    I did take the trail that starts in the AHS parking lot once to the same spot. Sounds like when I hit the AHS Cross Country trail from Boundry I need to go left to get over to the Bartlet St entrance/exit. Tomorrow AM (8:30ish) may be the day for that if I can clear the cobwebs out from the DMB concert tonight, may be a good idea to sweat out some toxins...

    Once you cross over rt 20, it becomes the stirrup brook trail. There's a map of the whole trail here: http://northboroughtrails.org/MAPS/ARHS.pdf

    I did the Coyote trail yesterday. That seems like the toughest one of the bunch (not saying much), but it has more up and down and a small rock garden. Ends up running parallel to the Assabet River on an off angle trail that was tough to ride. I turned around because the ground was still really soft from the rain over the weekend I kept sliding down toward the river. Here's my track which got pretty screwed up, but I did attach a pic of the section near the river: http://rnkpr.com/a6hize
