Review: Nice landscape, good ride, technical level also for beginners.

Similar Trail: If you want just to speed, very near is the air line trail with approx 26 miles from one to the other end.

Review: This scenic area along the Salmon River is surprisingly wild for Connecticut. The primary ride is to follow the main blue trail East from the covered bridge on the south side of the river. After a short ride, this trail goes up a steep, rooted climb, much better suited for hiking. Once your past this, it gets more rideable and continues up and over a ridge to a decent sized loop that ends at Day Pond State Park. This is rather hilly, intermediate area. There are off shoot trails here put together by riders I'm told, but I've yet to experience them enough and the area still seems untapped and better suited for hiking. As such, unless you're going here with someone who knows the area, I can't really recommend you explore it on your own, without plenty of patience and time.

It should be known that if you travel along the north side of the Salmon river, along Comstock Bridge Rd, then River Rd, this very easy road ties into the Airline trail, and numerous off-shoot trails as well.

Review: I only went about 1/3 of the way on the main trail and explored some of the steming single tracks and I liked it a lot. I would say it was a little too tough for beginners but good for someone a little past that. There is some good scenery too. Some of the uphills are a little challenging but not too tough. Hope you like it. I would deffinitely recommend these trails.

Similar Trail: If you find this trail to be a bit too difficult I would recommend Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT.
