Riding Trans Mass and PDR 9-6 to 9-10

Hello Everyone,

I am planning on riding the Trans Mass and VT Puppydog from 9-6 to 9-10. I plan on starting from Winsted CT and following it as far as I can until I need to turn around and come home on 8-10. I've done the lower section of the Trans Mass on my XL a few times but this time I plan on trying to see the rest. I always only made it to the corner where there is a old trail that leads to an old scout camp. I will probably be going rain or shine as long as it isn't bad enough to become a safety issue. If anyone is heading that way I wouldn't mind riding for a bit. I am planning on using my 1980 GS 550 that I have set upmore as a scrambler than a regular GS. The first time I did the lower section it was the year after the ice storm about 3-4 years ago. However I was up there last year on the XL once or twice but still never had enough time to make it past that scout camp.

I don't know of any changes to the original in post one.

I hope to be riding it again before the month is out and the snow starts to fly.

South or North of Rte 9?

I don't recall any stoppages when I last rode there this summer, but with rural roads that sort of thing can change week to week what with washouts and the like.

I have long wanted to suggest a change. Is the start now at the Shell station on Rte 8 (Winsted) or still down on Rte 44? Anyway, from there go up Rte 8 to just past the federal boat launch. Which could/should also be the Start as there are public bathroom facilties plus a large public parking lot for trailers, and it's closer to the MA line but still in CT.

Just a hundred yards or so north of the boat launch, take the dirt road on the left, work your way over to (IIRC) Prock Rd. and cross the CT/MA line on a maintained dirt road that isn't mapped as a through road on some GPS units and some maps. When you come out onto pavement, resume the old route. (This also gives the potential for heroes on small bikes to use Simon's Pond Rd. and meet up with their big bike buddies later on the pavement.)

It does go through there. Short section of old paved road that has little streams running over it and foliage you may have to duck under

Hey Frank

That road has some big pine trees across. I couldn't fit under with my 800. You can pick up the rest of the TMT just past on RT 9

Also the next section North you will see Stage Rd looks like it doesn't go through but it does and no obstacles.

Mike

I was wondering if there was an aviation radio installation on a hilltop and the access to it had been "FAA Road".
