Mountain Biking Red Tail Loop

****   Add a review

This is a stand-alone loop that can easily be worked into the outer ride at Chicopee. It begins and ends on the gravel access road. The singletrack is tight and fast, but full of roots!

    Fun loop to add miles. Not super fast but you climb to the half way point then bomb down.

    Finally had a chance to try this trail. I rode it clockwise. It's a nice little trail, but not as "flowy" as the other Chicopee trails. it's basically "work your way uphill, then at the halfway point, start coming down". I like that it's twistier and tighter than the other trails.

    Quick way to add a few miles to your ride. Not to difficult or that fast. Not a whole lot of traffic on it either.

    This is a great little intermediate loop, but it's only 1.7 miles long.

    I can't explain why, but this tiny sub 2mile section was one of the funniest semi loop I have ridden in a long time. It starts and stoops in 2 separate locations as seen on the map, and the GPS shows how smooth the trail is. It was just fun, took all of 10min to complete but the flow was so nice and fast.

    I won't ever go to Chicopee again and not do this small loop.* Review edited 11/29/2010* Review edited 11/29/2010
