A fun and flowing trail that weaves its way through Chicopee Woods.

Brian Smith

Description

This trail starts and ends at an intersection with White Tail Trail - a junction known endearingly as "Confusion Point." Flying Squirrel can be ridden in either direction but is mapped counter-clockwise in this instance.

Turn right off of White Tail Trail and onto Flying Squirrel, headed towards the southern entrance to Copperhead Gap. Enjoy a flowing descent through hardwood forest right off the bat. The trail surface is mostly smooth, hard-packed red clay with a few roots and rocks thrown in to keep things interesting. Enjoy frequent sweeping turns as the trail continuously doubles back on itself.

Flying Squirrel makes its way south by contouring into and out of multiple ravines on the west side of Walnut Creek. The trail then crosses the creek on a well-built bridge and heads back to the north in similar fashion. Finish with a climb back to "Confusion Point" and pick a direction to ride on White Tail Trail.

Dry, Fallen Trees: Friday, 10/21, was very windy. Lots of tree limbs and debris have blown onto the trail. Keep your eyes open.
