Cross Country Rider
as stated above awesome.. lots of different terrain. some rock ledge face, some hardpack single track, some streams and swamp single track, some logging roads, some stream beds, some dirt road, some paved road. very technical downhills, challenging uphills. snow usually in some sections till late march/april. marked trails crossing town lines. mostly downhill, but some challenging uphill climbs.
there are a few ways to get there... the google map has it pretty much right on. there is a parking area for the m & m on enfield rd. going from mt. lincoln sections into parts of the cadwell forest.
taking a right about a quarter mile in. otherwise you end up going toward the amherst watershed. this is also a fun trail, but nowhere near as much fun as the above.
Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cushman's market trails (another section of the m&m)
puffers pond north amherst loop.
red rocks westfield overlooking the hampden ponds (above holyoke resovior) good up and down.
Chicopee state park.. for a quick sandy ride.
Bachelor st. granby
seven sisters... you need to be a little nuts for this.
mt. tom section from holyoke to easthampton
some of the robert frost trail sections.
holyoke reservoir - beginner to advanced
WNEC - 2-3 miles of trails flat and some jumps
