Sooo many good routes out there. For trails, you have Norwottuck connecting to Manhan going south or Northampton Trail going north. Further south, in Westfield, you have the Columbia Greenway RT.
My regular/favorite is to park in Umass' North Apartments lot and ride north on N Pleasant to 63 - or Pine-Leverett-Amherst-Montague Rd. (if you're super-ambitious, bear right from Montague Rd to Cave Hill - for a big hill and a REALLY COOL stop at the local Peace Pagoda) and basically to Montague and the Bookmill/Lady Killigrew for lunch. From there you could head to Millers Falls or Turners Falls... or loop south on Meadow Rd (best part of the route) or even across the river on River Rd.

The one I would stay away from in that area is 47 - lots of traffic and VERY windy last time I was on it.

Leverett has lots of scenic, unpaved roads.
