    Bershire Riders: where was I?

    this summer and today I've ridden trails starting at the end of New Lenox rd.( I actually started at October Mt camping area.). I take a left onto a trail just after the parking area and before the old building and follow that(very steep) for a ways and bear left and ride on same trail for a long long ways and eventually come out at Kirvin(?) park in Pittsfield. There's so much in there I can't ride it all. well, not from where I start and how I get to N Lenox Rd.


    So, is all this stuff I rode considered October MT? how much is closer to the Camp grounds and actually in Lee? from the Camp gnds it was mostly barely ridable very rocky double track.

    I like PSF and Yokun Ridge better. They both have more climbs.

    If I follow you. You to pump house backwards,

    Then got on a trail called tentacles . Then onto the trail to Kirvin park. There is a lot more and better up there. Really easy to get lost. Nothing is close to the campground. You can always contact me for a tour. Harry. Hdmsmz@ gmail.com

    I was wondering what we were calling that... lot of firewood down up there today.

    She's a grunt up. I usually include that as the last down...very tasty.

    OMSF is what it is. A ton of singletrack that IS nice. I ride the **** out of it because I'm so close. That said... there is far better flow in places like PSF & Balance Rock. The ridge is nice & techy, too.
