Update 2011 - The trail builders have been busy since we last visited Moosic.  They added an extension to the blueberry trail (not on the official map yet) which was basically pretty buff singletrack through wide open fields with nice view.  From here you can go down the power lines and look for a right on the new waterfall loop to white birches loop.  We skipped the white birch because I heard it was muddy and it looked pretty abandoned.  The actual trail to waterfall is labeled no bikes.. :( ..  Should have ditched the bikes and walked down in retrospect.  Waterfall loop was a pretty cool trail, had some nice flow in spots, lots of linked up rock at the end.  The other new trail we took was the bruised ego that we climbed back to the car, really well laid out, much better than taking the road.  Only trail we missed was the new short view loop.  Gotta save something for next time.  Great work guys, much appreciated!

Description -   First a little background.  NEPMTBA was asked by the Nature Conservancy to develop trails in this area after getting no response from IMBA supposedly.  They Teamed up with the Hubbard Bicycle club to create some amazing trails in a very short Time span.  There is much more information on forum and the Hubbard Bicycle club forum.  Thanks so much for the volunteers that created these trails!

Now on to the trails -  These trails are brand new so some of the singletrack is a little soft, but im betting it will wear in fast now that there is a complete loop to ride.  Almost all of the trail is tight singletrack with lots of conglomerate rock.  Trail is laid out in nice XC fashion with gentle climbs and some technical rock sections here and there.  We rode the loop counter clockwise with a nice road climb at the end.  This trail system will officially open sometime in October, ill keep you posted when I hear about opening day.

Loops - (Thanks Larry) When you go in past the gate look for a pile of rocks on your right. That's the first small trail. You'll come out onto an access rd. Make a left and go down it to the "Crossroads" and go straight. You'll cross a stream. As soon as you cross, hang a right.
This trail is Conglamorate. About 100yds in there's an intersection. Stay straight. BTW, I hope you like rocks... You'll do a bunch of slow, tech riding in here. Cross a stream and follow the trail. After a short DH and climb up more rocks you'll cross a wet area that we laid out about 50' of rocks.. Stay straigh on this and you're going to loop back to where you just were. But... hang a right on the way back! This will take you to another stream crossing and a low tree that for now you'll have to walk under. This leads to Stonehenge. It's the red line on the maps on Hubbards site. Continue out on the ST to the cool rock slabs. There's a ton of work done here to fill in the gaps, BUT there's one big gap that you might want to walk. This will lead you back into hardwoods. Stay on the ST all the way out to the powerlines. Hang a left and go down the powerlines. There's a quad path off to the left. It's washed out and rocky. Follow it until you see a pink ribbon on your left. This trail will take you out to O'Connors dam. Make a left and cross the dam. At the end, go right. You might have to look for the ST, but it's in a tight spot (hidden from quads). This trail will take you out to the lower parking area.

From here you have two options. Make a left and head up the access road to the Crossroads and hang a right. Or, take the pave uphill to the car. Both are about 1 mile overall
