This is the second time in as many years that we got to go out to this trail located in western Massachusetts. The trail is owned by the town it is situated in, and the guys who go wheeling on it are concerned that the town will close it down if every Tom, Dick, and Harry goes out there hootin’ and hollerin’ and tearing it up. For that reason, we agreed to be rather vague about the trail itself. Let’s just say that years ago the trail was cleared to run phone wires into the town. While the wires are gone, the clearing remains and offers just over two miles of some of the most fun we’ve had wheeling in the northeast.
The first time we covered it, it really wasn’t much fun at all. We managed to make it only a quarter of a mile into the trail because it was covered with inches of snow and ice. On our second trip, however, in the summer of 2011, the guys from Rock Krawler were leading the way up the trail and we were able to see the entire thing.
