    Cool rock formations. Better for hiking. Only 40% of trails are ridable imo (I did the 4mi outer loop). Many moderate to advanced rocky twisty inclines and declines. The ridable portions of singletrack are generally rocky with large roots. Glad I saw it but probably won't be back.

    First time mountain biking in some time! Beautiful area, might be better for hiking! So many roots and rocks that it was a bit challenging (we did the red trail). Some definite fun spots. looking to try some different spots in CT if anyone has any suggestions

    I've bikes here since I was seven; awesome trails there's a good variety of short and longer and there a a few streams and muddy parts but intermediate for the most part. Overall 8/10 for this area.

    Great single-tracks with cool rock formation surroundings.
