    Got snow?

    The Pioneer Valley looks to be socked in for a while. I've got snow tires on order, but until then, are there any trails that are clear enough to be worth driving, like ToT maybe?

    Rode Trail of Tears today. Did a 8 mile ride and no snow on the singletrack. Some occasional dusting on the sides of the trail. The leaves and pine needles sucked up the moisture pretty good. The ground was pretty firm - only some small 1-2' patches of mud near the bottom of some washouts. I had to drive to Falmouth later in the day and all woods around Otis look the same - snow free.

    Thanks for the info. I'll probably hit Otis this weekend if it isn't TOO c-c-c-ollld.

    Sweet. I think I'll head out there tomorrow if I can get up early enough. It's a haul from the valley, but right now it's worth it.

    I feel everyone's pain. but no snow here on Cape Cod. I went mtbing last weekend right after the storm and had no mud either. rode the dry roads tonight. probably mtb tmw or thursday.

    counted 7 cars at RT151/Otis area on Sunday. nice to see others are riding here.

    but we've had bad winters also. 2 yrs ago we got 30+ inches from one storm but it was gone within 2 weeks but then another storm about a month later lasted much longer.

    it's highly unlikely any camp grounds are open anywhere. everything is shut down for sure.

    I think Peters Pond Campground is open in Sandwich. It's on Cotuit Road.

    Could be wrong but Shawme Crowell may have some sites open on the weekends. That's a state forest so check on the DCR website or reserveamerica

    yeah, it looks like camping is out for a while. It's supposed to get pretty cold in the next few days.
