    Wendell and CTS conditions?

    Anyone now how Wendell and Charlemont are?

    H will chime in on CTS (though, I'd bet 'soggy' would be the condition). Wendell is getting there, though it too is still a little on the soggy side, though I think by mid week it will be good to go.

    Mike 2 inches more of snow Friday. Lots of mud. Trail work this week only. Might be ready to ride by May 1. We'll post up on our web locations when we open. (Facebook, Nemba forums, and here)

    Thanks Harold. We'll let it dry. Batch and Earls were great today.

    We'll be riding the North East section of CTS on Sunday at 1:00. The roads are somewhat spongy, but the ST on that side is good to go. Early season intermediate pace - probably about 1 1/2 hours ride time.

    Meet at the Warfield House - we'll have to go somewhere else post ride since they are still closed for the winter. Scheduled to open first weekend of May.

    Both good to go. Had a good ride in Wendell on Thursday and an equally fine ride in Charlemont this morning. A bunch of new boardwalk is sprouting on the Berkshire East side of the valley, helping a lot this time of year.

    Hi- first time posting at this site. Wanting to take my 8 and 10 yr old bys on some trails. Are there parts of the Charlemont system suitable for newbies with a sense of adventure?

    I don't know your kids. Take a look at the trails at the top of Berkshire East, the mildest stuff in CTS, but probably too difficult for most small kids.

    The best spot for kids in Wetern MA is Robinson St Park in Agawam. Not very hilly and the trails are pretty buff (not technical).

    Agreed, but for Hilltown locals Agawam might as well be a different country. A better/closer option are the family trails at Pittsfield.
