    Riding near Monson

    What's there for riding within 15-20 minutes or so of Monson?

    Peaked mountain is ok. I hear good things about Soapstone mountain / Shenipsit state forest in Somers.

    Wilbraham also has some solid trails, but I'm not 100% sure on the legality of the best of them. The White Cedar Swamp conservation area back out to the middle school on Stony Hill Road has a few trails and is worth a quick Sunday ride, but you really need to explore to find any singletrack, and it's mostly flat.

    I can PM you the details about the real gem in Wilbraham if you want.

    Brett, I heard it was pretty messed up when the tornado went through it a few years ago, not sure if it still is?

    I used to ride there a lot in the early 2000's and it was really good riding.
