Follow serene back roads to farm stands, past ponds and pigs (also sheep, chickens, goats and bunnies). Many roads are freshly paved but there is the usual fair share of potholes. Enjoy iced coffee at Smolak Farms (on the 26 mile short route) or a picnic lunch at Ingaldsby Farms (on the 34 mile medium route and 51 mile long route). Terrain is moderately rolling with the short route touring North Reading and North Andover. The medium adds Boxford and Groveland. The long adds West Newbury and River Road.
