Trail Erosion at Chicopee

Postby TDJ » Wed Oct 02, 2013 3:10 pm

I will be passing near Chicopee this weekend and I am considering stopping for a ride at Chicopee.
I am concerned about trail erosion being rough from my last ride there about three years ago.
Have there been any trail improvements in the recent years?
Thx, Cheers.

yes, they've let it erode even further, and it's gotten more technical as a result.
clearly it's entirely too technical...

Some sections are definitely rougher. The back side of White Tail is crazy in places and there is currently a debate on whether to leave it and designate it as advanced (my choice) or groom it. We try to keep Tortoise and Flying Squirrel fairly smooth but heavy summer rains have made for some rough spots on those trails too. Copperhead will rattle your kickstand!

This HAS to be a troll. No way this is real.

I appreciate the info and I am not sure what is trhoppe's problem.
Since FATs is closed (damn government), we will be loading up on ibuprofen and riding Chicopee anyway (plus Blankets).
C U on the trails.

I think it is because as trails go and compared to other stuff around, Chicopee isn't that rugged. Copperhead obviously is, and some parts of White Tail, but most of the stuff out there is pretty smooth. I wouldn't want to ride some of that stuff on a rigid bike, but I ride a hardtail out there all the time and it isn't that bad.
