from Look Park into Leeds is simply gorgeous. The continuation of the trail through downtown adds a quick and scenic route to downtown which is suitable for families to ride.

This coming week is going to see the addition of a bridge across Route 10 which will link the Northampton trails to the Easthampton Manhan Trail. When the rest of the connector is finished, you will be able to ride from Leeds to the Easthampton-Southampton town line. A trip from Southampton through Easthampton, Northampton, Hadley, and Amherst to the Belchertown line will be possible.

Now that will make for spectacular riding. I hope to watch some of the bridge installation and grab some photos. If you go, let me know what you think.
