Review: CPHSP is one of my favorite places to trail run and mtn bike. There are a myriad of trails to choose from. There are flat/rolling carriage roads, climbs, downhills, and aggressive singletrack. That being said, if you are looking for jumps and/or drops then this is not the place. The more remote trails are better and tend to be less congested. One big negative is the dog walkers (I, too, am a dog owner!!). The dog walkers here, like many public spaces, are incredibly irresponsible and don't follow the leash LAWS! I have been bitten 2x while running here and now carry mace, but EVERYONE's dog is the nicest and won't bite! If your dog is off their leash I won't slow down or give it any special consideration. Rules are created for a reason and meant to be followed. Simple as that.

Review: CPHSP was horrible. It may be good for some of you cross-country riders... A lot of it is just rock gardens and climbing. There are only a few drops and rollers throughout the entire park and barely any cool features. If you live in CT, I would say Rockland Preserve in Madison is your best bet, with loads of jumps, drops, and much more!

Review: My go to place in Fairfield County. Miles of fire roads for XC or winter riding on the fatty. Easy single track on new Stratocaster and South Pond loop for speed and flow fun. Technical goodness on Rock n Roll and Chimney. A bit of backwoods adventure on the north end, and some crazy drops here and there if you have the guts. Hunty has it all.

Review: Fun trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Trail surface is currently covered with 1-2 inches of fallen leaves though making conditions a little dangerous. (especially since there is ice forming under the leaves in some areas) But my overall opinion from my first time riding here is that it is a great spot.

Review: I drove more than two hours four times last summer to ride here. CPHSP is the most challenging 'single track' trail w'in driving distance of where I live. The setting is rocky deep forest and is incredibly beautiful. Each time I went back I tried to ride a section that I couldn't the time before. This is a trail you need to keep coming back to and keep working on and it's worth everything you put into it. CPHSP also let me see the incredible engineering that went into my GIRO helmet when it protected my skull from a serious miscalculation on a downhill. I made it on the next ride w' a new helmet. BTW, the trail scores as blue sq but feels like a DD when you ride it.

Similar Trail: I like Glacier Ridge on Long Island but it's only a warmup for CPHSP

Review: Just finished a ride on the blue and red trails. I took a map after reading comments from tymal9797 which turned out to be a good move. While the trail is marked in most places there are several decision points without any markings at all. There are some really tough climbs and descents on both the blue and red trail. Also a fair amount of hike-a-bike, especially on the blue trail where it runs along a buried fiber optic line. I'd call this area a roller coaster but long-time MTBers may call it something else. I had to walk up three of the hills because they were too steep and rocky to ride.

Review: Incredible trails here. The first time I rode the trails I was a bit lost winding around some of the trails with no map of course. some great techy stuff in the middle of the park and some great down hills too. You will love this place.
