CARL RUSSO/Staff photo. Hampstead and Plaistow both feature an expansive network of trails used for hikers and bikers. While bikers can often get a bad rap on trails, this group cleans and maintains the trails to improve them for others — even uncovering trails that have long since been forgotten. Kevin Arling leads a group of 19 bikers out of the woods of the Hampstead Conservation land after they rode ten miles on Wednesday evening. 7/9/2014.
