The Ice House - Trail, Northampton, Massachusetts

The Ice House - Trail, Northampton, Massachusetts

DESCRIPTION

has a long hikabike section that can be ridden up short sections at a time in some places. It goes straight up to the top of a hill. You have by now climbed maybe 700 feet and its a good view from here. Go down the other side and turn right for the longest downhill ever. Go left for the steepest downhill ever. Anyway, if you go right you get onto the Ice House run which eventually takes you out onto another road 8 miles later. Its very windy and the singletrack is excellent after the long downhill which is at least 2.5 miles long.

Its pretty good, nice long DH run. The uphill is really tough and steep but if you're skilled you might make it halfway up without a walk. If you're skilled and have lungs of steel you can make it all the way up. Nice view at the top. Then ride down for miles and miles!

Customer Service

You gotta start at the shop there in Leeds and head up. Or you can start on Audubon road and head up the steep way for a long downhill. Just ask someone at an LBS in Northampton they'll tell you how to get there.
