Trail Description
About this trail
This is a cool set of singletrack that is in-between a network of double track. Not a ton of riding but great after work riding. From the lot, follow the dirt road toward the water. You can either take the entrance on the left, or follow the double track on the right. I prefer the left entrance. From there, you will cross a small stream. Continue straight. You will see the entrance to the single track on the right. It is a pretty sharp uphill turn.

There is no trail map so exploring is the key. The "Bucket trail" is a must ride. Fun, flowing, and twisty. Look for the metal bucket hanging from a tree. The network isn't big enough to get you lost but it is enough to keep you interested for an hour or two.

Review: Great trail to get back into riding. Short enough not to get to lost and challenging enough to get some great training. Cant wait to hit it again!

Review: Fun place to get a ride in. Great for beginners to get started and get some skill building in and fun for the more seasoned rider. As of this week (June 2016) the junkyard is a bit rough and needs some attention/grooming.

Review: The Res has some new trails and features. The Junkyard is evolving and expanding with a new little side loop and some needed tweaking on the main loop. It's always a fun challenge. There is a new curving bridge on the Hobo Trail that gets us over an old muddy spot. Overall these trails are super fun with not much climbing but plenty of technical spots to practice your skills.

Review: Smallish area but fun flowy and classic New England trails. Mostly soft dirt trails with rocks and roots but just few enough where you can carry your speed. Fun finding the junkyard and the bucket.

Review: There's still alot of leaves but the trails are dry and solid, had a great time, don't know if I was on the bucket trail but there was a good downhill section. Over all it was a great time easy to navigate being my first time there

Review: Perfect place for a quick "out-and-back". Not a lot of riding but some fun stuff and nice loop options. Despite the tame riding, there are 2 sections that make for a nice tech - challenge; 1) a switchback that turns into loose slate and, 2) some very tight switchbacks coming off a nice pitch. Fun riding and a good place to develop some skill.
