    I took a ride last weekend with a friend who took me around Barkhamstead reservoir and out to Colebrook lake up and around through lower MA. It was a great ride. Colebrook was great also. I have a picture of a steel bridge that because of the drought hasn't been seen in 60 years. Also ran a road that hasn't been exposed for about the same amount of time. I was looking at the GPS to see if this road was an alternate of route 8 and saw I was actually driving through an area that was supposed to be underwater. And is most of the time for the last 50 or 60 years. All of this information and pictures I have at home and can't access the GPS route or pictures right now or I would send them to you. Shouldn't be that hard to figure though. Let me know if you need more information and I'll try to supply it.

    do you have a gps. there's a file in the early posts. a smart phone will work also, but I don't know how to do that.

    in 3 weeks there's a neat event.

    Rode this track this morning north to south and than looped back up to Great Barrington. Really fun ride. Went around a road closed sign on Kent Rd which just was a washed out gravel road nothing crazy. Mt Easter Rd was fun wish it kept going. Thanks for putting this together.

    Hello. I am going to revive this thread and introduce myself. When I was young I had dirt bikes, as a young adult a few street bikes. Now it is time to go back to my youth Bought an old XL600 to test the waters. I live right off the RT that started this thread on Jeremy Swamp Rd. Would love to ride the route with someone or any other Rt in the area. Just getting back into this so go easy on me. Thanks, Chris
