Biking in Berkshire Mountains and Litchfield Hills - Berkshire Hiking

I've biked a few paths and plan to write them up like I've done for the hikes but for now here are some links to great places to explore. This region has a lot of great biking trails/paths and tons of backroads to explore. If you want to bike along roads visit the scenic drives page and follow some of those routes. But be aware that this part of the country is very congested and people drive very fast on a lot of the open roads so use common sense when using roads to bike and observe all safety rules.   Enjoy!
