In CT - all my local stuff is way to wet to ride. Got a couple days off to make a little trip, and the Cape area trails are close and sounds as if they are dry.

Been there, TOT, Wompy, Blue Hills, some other stuff around there a few times in the past but it has been a long time. I'm assuming much of the stuff north of Boston is not good to go yet - please correct me if I'm wrong. I've got very fond memories of the riding at Harold Parker!

Anyone want to give some tours, or link to some mappage? Otherwise, I'll grab directions to the trial heads and go get myself lost.

Anyplace to camp for a night or two, or am I just stuck having to get a hotel somewhere? Edit: looks like the KOA in Middleborough is a cheap and easy camping bet, and close.

I've also been trying to figure out the best place to camp close to/on the cape. Here are some links that might help

http://www.newenglandsite.com/ma-capecod-campground.shtml
http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/southeast/mssf.htm
http://www.best-of-cape-cod.com/cape-cod-camping.html

Just moved here last fall so I haven't tried any any of these places yet. Also, two maps for Otis are linked to here: http://www.nemba.org/ridingzone/bourne.html

The site has other maps too or just google the net for the trail you're interested in. The state park websites usually have maps.

Thanks. Doing some digging on the web now. Figure I'll just do the KOA - easy, convenient, and it's not as if I'm going to be way out in the wilds anywhere down there anyhow. :rolleyes:

I'll grab all the map stuff I can, and if no on e is free to ride/point me to the good stuff, I'll just wing it. Still be better than sitting here in Danbury waiting for the slop to dry.

If you're trying to stay on the cape rather than commute from a campground, I'm sure you could negotiate a good rate at some of the motels on the cape by walking in and asking for the manager. The ones that are open are starving this time of year.

Nah, I actually prefer a campsite/tent/sleeping bag most of the time, even if it's "camping" at a KOA.

Shawme Crowell SF campground is open weekends I think. On Cape and closer to Otis and TOT, so may be a better choice unless you are going to try Foxboro, Borderland, etc.

No worries. Will be there during the week anyhow.

Bump.

Anyone for Otis this Thursday/Friday, March 17th/18th?

Unless it ends up too wet from the predicted rain tomorrow. A half inch according to noaa.gov - that going to be too wet down there still the next day?
