    Now first of all why they call it mt Pisgah , I don't know it is no Mountain , it is a pretty good hill , you can see the city of Boston from 35 miles out , but still it is not a Mountain

    But we had herd that about 3 miles of new single track had been cut. and it was all designed and cut ( with approval ) by a Mt Biker.
    WOW , those new trails are great!

    But first it was Berkshire_riders's first time there , and we parked on lyman st. so we climbed , and climbed , and climbed and got to the Awesome views that you get from the 2 peaks.

    what was interesting , is shortly after we got into the woods off of lyman street. we could see about 100 yards off of the trail were a couple of tents set up. looked like some one set up camp.

    anyway we did hte peaks , then did the steep down off of the 2nd one , and Started looking for the new trails , they were not hard to find . and they were awesome !!!
    there were maps at the major intersections , with you are here. and everthing was well marked and Fun! just a great Piece of work

    Here is Berkshire_rider doing a step up on the vernal Pool trail



    this an interesting little rock on the south ridge loop



    Berkshire rider going over said rock



    we ran into 3 hikers who were hiking up the rocky section of the south gorge trail. we waited for them , although they said they said we spoiled there fun, they wanted to see the carnage of us riding down that ! niether one of us crashed but wow it was tricky, too bad the pic didn't come out . But overall they were impressed with the trails too.

    and fianlly Steve on a spine that is on the howard brook trail

    If you ever in the area, let us know. There's lots of good places to ride, and we should be able to hook something up.

    Haha sweet. Well seeing that I am 17, it might be hard to get up there now. But maybe I will see if my parents want to go to Cape Cod or something. Haha.
