    Anyone ride Pisgah?

    Just found this place and it's like a cool hidden gem. Wondering if there's any locals and how you put the loops together. Me and a bro have been up there and it's a total party just trying to piece some good loops together.

    The jump track is savage!

    It's in Berlin on the Boylston border, maybe 15 minutes from 62 in Clinton by the Wachusett Res.

    Although If you do come out our way, I doubt you ride these smaller staches


    Although if you ever do you should check out the Lime Kiln Conservation area in Bolton, we affectionately refer to it as Rattlesnake.

    I've ridden there a couple of times, but not enough to put any good loops together.

    I haven't ridden any of the Lime Kiln Conservation trails though. Got any recommended loops for that trail system?

    Depends on what you're looking for, Pisgah seems like there's not a lot of trails and there were a lot of hikers when we went. Most of the trails were intermediate at best. One good rocky tech section, good 9-10% boneyard. Climb or descend at your leisure.

    Rattlesnake is very convoluted and easy to get lost in without a guide, but it's a tech junkies heaven. Do 10 miles in there and you will be feeling pain. Nothing but ledge. It's an absolute boneyard. Cool little rollers with tire wide exits (again helps to have a knowledgeable party) some neat boosters and like I said, tons of tech. Cool sections with trail traversing the old quarry. *Don't fall left!*

    If I were to have to travel for either I would pick Rattlesnake.

    Also Scott, if you have Strava, I'm Uncle Rico. I can ride my bike over dem mountains.

    Edit: if you're in Boston proper and do chance to travel out here the best bang for your buck is LSF. Or you can jump in one of our hell grinds next door in Westminster.

    We don't talk about ride club.

    I will direct you to the 50 miles of legitimate trails in Groton.

    Hit me with a DM if you ever want to venture out this way, I'll show you around. We have fun for everyone. Not a lot of tech, surprisingly being in the shadow of a mountain. But it's fun and challenging.

    Uncle Rico? what kind of name is that? I'm Captain Chamois on Strava. LSF is a classic. Will take you up on Westminster once the trails clear up, thanks.
