Came to ride our bikes to find the trial is closed
Straight ride through some beautiful scenery. Really short but a great ride none the less.
Nice easy walk … mostly flat, well marked and wide enough. For two
We rode the Ashwillticook trail from the Berkshire Mall entrance(about 1.5 miles north of it’s actual beginning at Crane Avenue in Pittsfield) to its end in Adams on 6/21/22. Trail is paved and in pristine condition. Trail weaves through a lot of nice sections with trees and wetlands bordering the trail, and you can see hills in the distance on both sides. There’s a long section (about 4.5 miles) along the Cheshire reservoir that is especially nice. The northern section runs through the town of Adams, with several trailside food stops. An excellent ride!
We entered this trail off the Cape Cod Rail Trail on our E-Bikes. Trail was in fine condition with interesting views along the way. The bonus was the Chatham road loop which takes you along the ocean and by the Chatham lighthouse. There's a map at the end of the Old Colony trail for this loop but we needed our trusty GPS to keep us on track.
There's definitely hills on this trail. We rode our E-Bikes and had a great time. All the spurs led to interesting spots. The trail looked and felt like it had just been recently paved. Recommend parking at the National Park Visitors Center lot trailhead. BTW - The Visitors Center has an elevated platform that gives an excellent viewpoint to the area.
We rode from Sweetwater Campground down to the roundabout. From there we took the Old Colony Rail Trail to Hangar B Eatery at the Chatham Airport. Great food! Great ride! Downside is the business and road crossings. But…it is a vacation spot. Spots along the way with walking paths and picnic tables.
Great trail. Level path for most part. Does get very busy with walkers and kids. Lots of stopping to cross road. Lots of paths to hop off bike and do some walking. A few picnic areas along the way also. At the trailhead there is an awesome place to grab breakfast or lunch: Hanger B Eatery. It is located at the Chatham Airport.
This is a nice, shaded trail. It is hard packed and has a couple wooded bridges that are pretty bumpy. We parked at Lion’s Park and headed west from there. The trail is wide enough for bikes to pass, it’s nicely shaded and has benches and planters along the way. The street crossings are well marked and on quiet streets. Another reviewer mentioned that this is a nice trail for letting the kids bike on and I agree. It’s a great trail for a beginning biker to get more confident.
I was glad to find this trail; I biked the Oakham-Rutland section. Traveling from Oakham to Rutland, I am estimating the trail is 95% gradual uphill, 3% challenging uphill, 1% level, and 1% downhill. Would you prefer biking uphill or downhill on the return trip? The trail is primarily stone dust with a few small rocks and a very brief section of gravel. Perhaps a mountain bike would be preferable, but my hybrid bike was fine.
Cycled the SNETT 28May2022 from Thompson CT to Franklin MA. 22 miles.
Summary: CT state line to the end of Douglas State Forest good - 5 *, last 2.5 miles in Franklin good 5*. The rest - don't bother as of May 2022 1*
The trail in Thompson CT is in fact the CT Airline trail that directly rolls into MA as the SNETT.
This section through to the end of Douglas State park is a really nice ride west to east on hard packed gravel, slightly uphill with some picturesque settings. This end of the trail can be ridden on a gravel bike. If you intend to ride further make sure that you have a mountain bike.
As you head out of Douglas State Park, it starts getting messy. 1/2 inches of rain the previous day and we're into the mud. Now a gravel bike doesn't cut it, and that's before the sand, rocks and stones. You'll need that mountain bike, determination and patience. There are lots of better places to go mountain biking than here!
At mile 11 the soggy muddy track dumps you onto the hard shoulder of rte146 just outside Millville MA. Good luck! If you are going east to west, your chances of finding this tiny on ramp at the edge of rte 146 are close to zero as is nearby parking.
Millville to Blackstone MA is on road, no sign posts, no directions and Google maps really doesn't cut it. You pick up the SNETT in Blackstone near a CVS. Yes....riiiiiight. Nope not happening. Google maps are not accurate here. Spent 1/4 hour checking out the back streets of Blackstone. Good luck.... do not rely on Google maps too much for trail directions.
Picked up the trail again on Farm Street by the lake and landfill. A pathetic single track trail, between 2 lakes, boggy, rocks across the whole trail and you need the mountain bike to get through the mud. Avoid.
1 mile later go through an underpass of rte 126, trail is closed. No warning, no diversion, tough. Another reason to avoid. Scramble up the embankment to rte 126. Road trip past South Elementary School to Franklin - about 1.5 miles. Rejoin the SNETT (yes, signposted at last!) for the last 2.5 miles, a mixture of paved and hard packed dirt - rideable with most bikes - maybe not with a true road bike. This bit is definitely worth riding.
I began at the trail head - bit bumpy for the first mile and a side trail has been rerouted because of the wet mucky ground. Once you pass that it’s clear sailing until… the 3 mile point and the trail is closed. Logging equipment and logs block the trail. ¿
