Description

Corridor 9 is quite extensive (as a hiking trail), so I've mapped it in sections based on the club that maintains those portions. For the Adams Sno-Drifters section, it starts from Snowmobile Junction AD04/SV34. It travels west to Snowmobile Junction AD03. It travels north (coinciding with Corridor 2) to Snowmobile Junction AD02.

Here, Corridor 9 splits off Corridor 2 and runs westerly. The trail reaches East Mountain Road, and follows it to the left. The trail heads down behind Tophet Brook Farm to Snowmobile Junction AD06. The trail turns right and passes by Burlingame Hill Road and Ayrhill Farm. The trail ascends the hill (adjacent to a driveway) after passing by Snowmobile Junction AD07. Here, the trail enters the Stafford Hill Wildlife Management Area. It traverses through some cornfields, then loosely follows Harbor Road.

The trail turns left onto the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail (this is the only place where snowmobiles are permitted on the bike trail). It turns off the bike trail and runs southwest to East View Drive. It follows Fred Mason Road Branch (through the woods).

Here, through Mount Greylock State Reservation, the trail follows Reservoir Road Trail, Cheshire Harbor Trail, Old Adams Road, and Rockwell Road to Snowmobile Junction AD16. It descends southward, following some of Greylock Road and Bauer Road. It turns right off Bauer Road (just before it turns to North Main Street). It weaves and winds its way through woods and fields to its end at Snowmobile Junction BS131.

Please refer to the Berkshire Snow Seekers' website for the continuation of Corridor 9.
