Mountain Biking Funny Farm North

Nice little single track loops between the Housatonic Railroad tracks and Queen Street. Other the other side, take Old Farm Road down to the Ristricted Area Sign and look for a trail on the left. This is the Bone Yard Trail, this cuts around to link up with the other side of Old Farm. Take this to an intersection and turn left, over the bridge and then immediately left you will pick up the Newtown Trailway and an old trail with Green Blazes. Follow to Railroad tracks, cross over the river and then climb (hike-a-bike) back to the trail head.

    Some singletrack not well maintained. Most of the trail is destroyed by horse rides from the horse guard

    Horse Trails. Small loops that nary have seen a knobby. I think if something develops, trail wise, in the neighboring Fairfield Hills to south of Wasserman Way, you could end up having a great network of trails.
