No. of Reviews: 142

Trail is mostly single track (after the latest re-routes in August) all built and maintained by SORBA. - The only "re-use" trail of any length is an old logging road used as the in/out - access. FYI - ATV/Motorcycle trails are not typically sustainable -therefore we used little or none of the few existing ones on the site. Loop Names - Mosquito Flats (Beginner); Dwelling Loop (Intermediate); South Loop (Advanced) - Hamilton's Hop (in/out - access trail) - Shultz Chute - (in/out - access trail to the advanced loop)

Summary:
Fantastic trail system! I have to give a HUGE thank you to SORBA Woodstock for making a trail system this nice and this close to my house possible.

You can find something for everyone here. The trails include: Mosquito Flats (beginner), Mosquito Bite (beginner+), Dwelling Loop (intermediate), South Loop (advanced), Van Michael (advanced), and Quell Holler (expert).

I keep it simple with a single speed 26er, so Dwelling is my go-to for a good butt whoopin'! The absolute only addition I could think of for Blankets would be a pump track. I can honestly say that if I were to ever move away from here, I could very easily justify the cost of road trips and plane tickets to come rip it up!

Recommended Route:
A little warm-up action on Flats/Bite, followed by your personal choice of awesomeness. Oh, don't forget to check out the alt line on Dwelling. It's a hoot!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rope Mill (just down the street from Blankets), Big Creek (a short trip but worth it IMO)

Great trails, there are a lot of different trails to chose from and they are all different in their own way. Very fun.

Summary:
I liked the trail, thought is was fast and flowed well. It was a bit confusing as to which way to go since i haven't been there before. This place was packed with tons of bikers. I would say just see if you can tag along with someone, that way you don't have to wonder which way to go.

Recommended Route:
NO idea.

my favorite trails are chicopee and dauset trails in the area.

Summary:
Great trail system for anyone. First-timers will enjoy misquito flat/bite (I've seen training wheels out there on numerous ocassions). With that said, go slow and warm up. Save the speed for the other, more challenging (and less crowded) trails. Dwelling is fast and flowy. Van Michael, IMO, is similar to dwelling but with longer (and much more challenging) climbs and descents. Sout Loop is not as aerobically difficult as Van Michael, but is much more technically demanding. Never got the chance to try the downhill before I moved away.

The only real downside to this trail system is that it gets CROWDED on nice days. Try to ride here during off-peak days and times (i.e. not the weekend) to fully appreciate this trail system. It gets a one chili deduction from me for this reason.

Recommended Route:
Follow the day-directions and watch out beginners and little ones.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Chicopee, Big Creek
