Trail Description
About this trail
Great Brook is very popular since it is such a great family and beginner area. Because it is such a popular family area, it's not a great idea for advanced riders to come to Great Brook to do their serious weekend pounding. It's wise for fast riders to avoid this park on nice summer weekends. It certainly is a good idea to avoid riding hard on the main trails. The main trails are frequented by family groups of four of five people, both hikers and bikers, including young kids, often on little bikes. Some of the more out-of-the-way single-tracks offer more challenge without this risk over running over slower bikers.

Review: It's a nice place but it's really not a good place for more experienced riders to enjoy. It's not technical at all, and as the description mentions, it's meant for families to hike and less experienced riders. Overall, I wasn't very thrilled when I saw the place, but it wasn't the worst either. This is not a blue square, it is a green circle, so whoever rated it intermediate, don't listen to them.

Review: Great Brook is a good way to kill a few hours and the terrain is mixed with a lot of different types of riding but nothing too technical. Not a huge drawback but one thing about this place is that there's horse poo everywhere. Easy parking and trail entry is a plus. Not a very challenging place and usually easy to keep up the pace here.

Review: Had a great winter ride here. The trails were well maintained and had a good variety for all levels. Some trails were closed for just cross country skiing I guess, didn't realize it until after the ride though.

Review: Rode here at the NEMBA adventure series. They had two marked loops, beginner and intermediate. Nice mix of terrain. Plenty of fire roads and smooth singletrack through fields for the beginners (still enough roots, rocks, and short up and downs to keep it challenging for a beginner). Intermediate loop had some nice technical climbs with plenty of rock outcroppings to navigate. To extend the ride you can link it with Russell Mill. Plenty of singletrack not included in the NEMBA loop so not a bad place to get out and ride. Just keep your head up for walkers, families, and horses. All equestrians we came across were great; friendly and their horses weren't spooked so they'd call for us to just keep riding - can't beat that!!
