Winstead to Granby

Routes 8, 20 (24 miles)

This road meanders around the Quabbin Reservoir and is relatively a quiet ride through the forest. From Route 122, connect to 32A in Petersham south to Hardwick. Greenwich Road is an even quieter road with tight curves. For a longer ride, loop around the Reservoir along Route 202.
