    If you're looking for a wide flat trail then this is it. For the most part,very well maintained. Ran into one flooded area that required you to go of off-roading. Other than that I was able to move quite fast along the entire route.

    Ok, it really isn't going to attract 'serious' riders, but(!) if you. Want to take someone on a nice easy exposure to riding on anything other than asphalt - this is a great place to take them. The actual trail is longer than what is listed on Singletrack. The northern/western end is actually on Kettletown Rd.. The southern/eastern is by Whittmore Glen park in Naugatuck.

    There is a portion that is private from Towantic Hill Road east to Long Meadow Pond Road (Griswold Road). This just happens to be at the top of a large hill.... You can detour on the streets and pick up the trail again, or turn around here...

    Seriously easy except for some sandy areas that are just plain annoying (I hate sand pedaling). So if you want an easy ride, this is the place to go.

    Great trail for a family with young kids just getting into the sport of mountain biking. Ample parking during weekdays off of 188 near the Fire Department. Double Track throughout, little - if any debris. * Review edited 8/8/2011
