Description

White Tail Trail is a key component to the Chicopee Woods featured ride as it connects most all of the loops in the park. It starts at a junction with Tortoise Trail and descends quickly down to the gravel service road. The trail is marked with a sign and plastic skull nailed to a tree. Don't let this ominous marking deter you however, as White Tail is one of the most fun trails in the park.

When you hit the service road, you have the option to enter and ride Red Tail Trail, or continue down the service road and off to the right on White tail. Assuming you stay on White Tail, wind your way through some fun twists and turns until reaching a junction with Copperhead Gap. Not long after passing the entrance to Copperhead Gap, you'll arrive at Confusion Point. Keep left to stay on White Tail. The descent from here down to a creek bed features steeper grades, larger rocks/roots and tight switchbacks.

Climb up to "Champagne Hill" and then follow White Tail as it parallels I-985 southward. Cross a few elevated wooden bridges and dismount for a stream crossing that leads to the main service road. This is where White Tail ends.

Riding the Kramus on White Tail just off the Flying Squirrel. I love this trail system. It's a great place to ride. Not too hard, but definitely a challenge, and lots of fun!

Trails are way too wet. These things should be closed. Beautiful day but trail conditions are wet and muddy. Watch out for tree limbs 4.9mi
