Review: Copy and paste the link below for an awesome highlight video from Bluff Point State Park. The bluff is where I first learned to mountain bike years ago and I am still going back whenever I can. The bluff has everything from beautiful ocean views, to awesome single track, and even some nice fast downhill rips. Oh and don't forget the rock gardens! They are epic. It is pretty easy to navigate with fire roads running through. Also some secret trail over the train tracks called Haley Farm. I post new videos from different spots around New England every Monday, so be sure to subscribe for more! Link: https://youtu.be/5dV0dK67Bpc

Review: Great single track. It really opens up and there are a lot more trails than you would think. Be careful not to get lost!

Review: Great During the Winter, when Many 'interior' Trails are closer to impassable with Snow/Ice... Shoreline is much more temperate (in the heat of the summer, too)... Mixed Elements of; Flowing Singletrack, Rocks and Roots, Logs and 'Skinnies', Climbs and Drops, Dirt and Rock with Sand and Gravel interspersed or easily found, yet infrequent Mud... Great Picnic views of LonGuyland Sound, if you pack a snack or more... I would Ride here more often, if it were closer AND Mooween and Rockland were not kinda-sorta on the way...

Similar Trail: Nathan Hale. Nassahegon. Yet neither have such views...

Review: This is the first trail I have road in CT and I am very impressed. So many options and a variety of difficulty levels. I was riding for about an hour and a half and maybe covered a quarter of the trail system. The location is great and the local bike shops a very helpful. You can also get to Haley Farm state park from Bluff point and they have some fun trails over there as well. Night riding is also very popular here.

Review: Lots of singletrack with some surprising hidden features. Flowy trails, rock gardens, a few rollers, drops, and jumps. Easy access to connect to Haley Farm along the Amtrak, can string together 15 or so miles. Typical loop at Bluff alone is around 7 miles.

Review: Place is always fun! Did ten miles on a combo of double and single track. Then had a great swim in the cove north of parking! Great spot!

Review: Great trails. There is something for everyone. Some great single track, good drop offs, a couple rock gardens. You could wind up and down hill all day long. Some fast double track but need to watch for walkers/horses on good days. Connects to Haley farm which has some nice trails, including a new single track.

Review: I've been riding this trail for more than a decade now and can honestly say it's one of the best trails in the tri-state area. Huge parking area not far from downtown Groton and plenty of trail choices. I usually start at the single track behind the outhouses and follow the train tracks to Hailey Farm. The area between the bluff is filled with great single track but as others have said its not marked so it may take a few rides to get a good flow. The main dirt road can be crowded during nice weather (including horses) so watch your speed. There is a great overlook at the end that you should check out. All in all if you're in the area this is a trail worth making a trip too. RI NEMBA hold a fun ride here in August with marked loops.

Review: I'm a big fan and quite honestly don't know of any other trail nearby that compares. There are tons of natural and built features in this park... if you seek them out. Great tech climbs and DH sections with massive roots and rocks. A few gardens get super hairy but nothing like making it through them without putting a foot down! My criticism is that although it's not the biggest area around, the trails could be confusing. their a tons of choices that can mess up your flow. No real map of the park to help you get from one end to the other... referring to only single track that is!!! fire road is just convenient to advance to another fun section. i will go back and back again! challenging but not too overwhelming to an intermediate to advanced rider. bottom line... it's fun!
