The rides will start at 6:00 PM. But please try to get there a bit early so that we can get the ride off on time.
Come help Berkshire NEMBA Trail Team Leader Heather Linscott work on a new beginner trail in the Greylock Glen!
Meet at the Thunderbolt Ski headquarters at 113 West Rd, Adams to collect tools and review plans then head up to the flagged trail off West Mountain Road
Work will include weed whacking/leaf blowing, raking, and some bench-cutting.
We may plan a follow-up weekend workday as well based on volunteer interest/availability, so please respond to give us a sense for planning :) Read more about NEMBA & TSR Workday: Greylock Glen
Kennedy Park consists of 500 acres of town-owned hardwood forest with old carriage roads along with nice singletrack. It's ideal for Mountain biking, hiking, picnics, X-country skiing,and snowshoeing. Motorized vehicles, electric bicycles and snowmobiles are prohibited.
Kennedy Park is revered as one of the premier places to mountain bike in Berkshire County. The trails are well maintained by the town of Lenox and by volunteers from Berkshire NEMBA.
They range from easy family trails to difficult, knarly singletracks. There are many opportunities for nature viewing and, after some climbing, incredible overlooks to enjoy.
While there are many places to park, why not start your ride from the Arcadian Shop. They'll give you an update on conditions and maybe even suggest some routes. Read more about Kennedy Park

Directions (source: https://www.umass.edu/sunwheel/pages/orchard.html)
Orchard Hill Observatory is located at the top of Orchard Hill. You can get there by either going to the Sylvan dorms following the treeline on the East side of the hill up to the telescope or by going to the Orchard Hill Dorms and following the gravel road (turn left when you get to the road (if you go right it will take you across the bottom of the hill). The local cellular phone company has been kind enough to install a huge communication tower adjacent to the telescope. If you make your way to the base of the tower you will find the telescope.
