Trail Description
About this trail
This is the easiest trail at Chicopee, and is directional. Check the signs to see which way to enter depending on which day it is. You'll have to ride this trail to access any of the other trails in the system (excluding the Coyote loop). The trail is very fast and bermed out, and also fairly wide with little climbing.

Review: Fall weather, hard pack with lose on top. Lower tire pressures work best for grip.

Review: Great begginer track. Very smooth and can build speed. One direction so you don't have to worry about people coming your way for the most part. Nice way to get to the other more advanced trails.

Review: Fairly level,easy, directional, fast single track. You have to use this to access the rest of the trail system so watch out for slower moving traffic.

Review: Good beginner trail at Chicopee woods that would be great for any age or level of rider. If you're a parent trying to get your kids on single track for the first time then come here.

Review: Tortoise Trail is a great warm up for the rest of Chicopee. It doesn't have anything overly technical or overly hard hitting. Really allows you to get in a quick lap to get all the blood flowing and warmed up to hit the rest of the Trails. I like to hit it up as my cool down. Ironically it is the entry and exit trail so it is nearly impossible to ride Chicopee without hitting Tortoise, unless you just run on Coyote/Devils Backbone. But, then you've wasted a good trip to Chicopee.

Review: Beginner trail, but the "Tortoise" rock feature is a lot of fun! Crucial connector trail to the rest of the trail system.
