I rode Red Tail and Copperhead Gap yesterday.
Red Tail is awesome, lovely loop of singletrack just off of White Tail after the Tortoise Loop. A large tree has recently fallen, and a rat snake was using the trail to work on his tan, but other than that it was perfect.
Copperhead is described as an "advanced" trail, and I agree with that. The entry looks sketchy, and that is a good thing as it deters noobs from wandering in. The first mile or so is just like the rest of Chicopee, all flowy singletrack with very few rock gardens. The advanced bit comes in the vertical features of this trail that are clustered around the middle. The dropper post paid for itself on some of these steep dives, and I only chickened out and walked one of the obstacles. Lots of fun, but remember that it's four miles long, and it ends in the middle of the park where you will be as far as you can get from the parking lot.
Bring your legs. Might wanna bring a lunch, too.
Flying Squirrel is still my favorite trail in all of Georgia. It's better than a trip to Six Flags.
