Trail Description
About this trail
Bennett's Pond in Ridgefield, CT is a hidden treasure just two minutes away from the madness of Route 7, in which you will find both gradual and sick climbs. Slick singletrack combined with ueber technical trails along the water. Following the white trail connects to even further miles of trail, including the epic Ives Trail that goes from here, through Pine Mountain State Forest and onto Tarrywile Park in Danbury.

Review: The reviews are bad, but I love this place. It is by far the the most technical park in the area (including Ninham on the NY side). My goal is to clear 7-up and 7-down without tapping. I am a happy rider when I do that. The trail around the pond is one big rockgarden. Best to bring a full suspension bike. Keep your fully rigid bike or your hardtail at home, unless it is a fatbike. Your tushy will thank you.

Review: Poorly maintained. Maps and markings difficult to follow. Lots of downed trees and widow makers. Eroded. Invasive plants and thorns very overgrown. Could be a fun place if given love. Very technical. Lots of potential.

Review: 1600 rough and tumble acres. You can ride for 10 hours and not cross your tracks. Sick climbs, awesome down hills, rollers, drops, rock. Great views, streams and ponds. Low usage. Big and confusing, but worth it...bring a compass. Poorly marked.

Review: Bennett's farm. 1600 rough and tumble acres with anything you might want. Sick Climbs, rolling downhills, nasty rock, rollers, views, streams and ponds. It is big and confusing but very worth it.

Review: Very easy trail, but some (2) good downhills and some climbs. Bring your bush axe- hey can we get some love for trimming the briars off of the trail in the late summer. Ride up the hill past the sign down to the pond. A second section is behind the bridge to the right. A good 2.5 mile loop.

Review: Mostly easy terrain with a few more technical sections. Connects to the Ives trail which is far more challenging but I'm not sure bikes are allowed on it. Lots of wild berries ripening this time of year.
