Lots of short ups and downs with lots of rocks, and a bunch of stuff to play on on the side of the trail. It's a good, fun ride, but it's best if you don't rush through it. Play around on some of the natural stuff, there's stuff for all skill levels. I'm thinking about cutting some stuff out there to make some big drops rideable :-)

Trail Directions
Go to the parking lot at poet's seat tower, and the trailhead is across the road. There are actually a few routes. Unless you've ridden there before, it can be kind of easy to get lost, so go with someone who knows their way around.

Summary:
I rode this trail last summer with a friend. I was just starting to get into mountain biking so I was definitely an inexperienced rider at the time. But I loved this trail. The first section leading up to the tower is pretty short but it was a good climb with some steep sections and lots of rocks. The view at the top is worth it though. Once you get to the top, if you go past the tower and continue down the road to the park entrance, you can pick up another single track trail across the street. This trail is pretty much more of the same and eventually for me it got to the point where it was too technical but it was still a lot of fun. I did not make it to the end of this 2nd trail so I am not sure how long it is.

Recommended Route:
Park in the Stop and Shop parking lot on Route 2A in Greeenfield. Ride you bike west on 2A for about 1/2 mile until you see the trail head on your left. It is steep right from the beginning.

Summary:
This is a small area with a lot a singletrack packed in. No sustained climbs, just short ups and downs. Sometimes smooth and fast along a steep drop off, sometimes very rocky and technical. A great place for a quick ride.

Recommended Route:
I like to start in Highland Park and work my way over to Sachem's Head and Poets Seat. As with most riding, your best bet is to hook up with someone who can show you around. You can't get seriously "lost" here, but probably frustrated if you don't know your way around. A good write up and recommended route can be found here: http://www.nemba.org/ridingzone/rocky_mountain_park.html

Summary:
This is a rugged,hilly, sometimes strenuous local ride. The trails on the Poet's Seat side make for a great warm up and warm down before you hit the real-deal in Sachem's head. There are some serious technical sections and a lot of good grinding fun. In the season, the guys and gals do group rides from bnikrs unlimited in greenfield, it will give you taste of this little known local gem.

Recommended Route:
As with all Franklin county riding pop into Bikes Unlimited on high street and get the local lowdown from Bob, Joe and the boys. Start by the old folkes home climb up tp poet's Seat down to the other side than into Sachem's head reserve. Play around until you get a sense of the place

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Catamount, Mt. Toby (it's better than you think), hawley, Deerfield Ridge, etc.
