Seems like some pretty decent trail, I would recommend taking a left at the trail head as this will bring you to some nice power line trails. It seems like there is a decent little network here, though unmarked, of double and singletrack. Parts of the trail could use some work and more traffic. All together, a decent place to ride.

    Once you know where all the trails are you can stitch together a 10-12 mile loop. Even more if you include the trails around sawmill brook, which is a short ride along a road. Nothing too gnarly, but it takes a decent level of fitness to ride the whole thing without needing to stop. Given the amount of trail and the age of the forest, there is always some dead wood after a storm, but locals are usually quick to remove any blockages, that cannot be ridden over or around. Glad to have it on my doorstep for some evening fun.

    Hidden gem that could use more traffic. Expect tight twisty singletrack here a few miles feels like a lot. once you learn the trails you can get a solid loop in without having to double back. Be sure to bring tires plugs and patches. Lots of sharp rocks and broken glass but don't let that spoil the fun. Check out mtb project they have a good map on the trails. Also there are a couple kids who ride dirt bikes and atvs here illegally but they are locals and have a lot of respect and don't ride the bike trails so don't worry when you hear them

    This place is a bit of a hidden gem. I rode there for the first time today (not sure why I hadn't found it yet, being only 10 miles from my house). There's a lot of trail packed into a small area. The trails are well laid out, with tight, twisty singletrack that makes great use of such a small space and utilizes the abundance of exposed rock for lots of rollers and technical climbs & descents. The singletrack here is a bit different than what you'd find in Landlocked Forest, Russell Mill, HP, etc. You could easily get lost here, but I built a Strava route to follow and found all the good stuff. I rode 10 miles with just a bit of double-back on doubletrack. I will definitely be back! Unfortunately, I came across one dirt bike and one ATV (on doubletrack). Motorized vehicles are prohibited here. Fortunately, the tight, twisty layout of the singletrack keeps the motos off the good stuff.

    Parked at Town Line Rd. Explored on this side of power lines for a bit and was totally bummed out because the only singletrack I found led to private residences... BUT on the way back to the car I did find some nice singletrack that was off the yellow blazed trail - trails were somewhat marked and not sure the layout so exploring is needed.

    Leaving this side and going to the reservoir I stumbled upon two different sections of singletrack - one played around on a hillside just above the reservoir. The other was a little further back from the reservoir and was nice! Some nice tight turns, switchbacks, lots of log crossings. With more runs on the trail you can certainly gain some speed - which is needed to get over some of the obstacles throughout the trail.
    I'm sure there is more - and what started out as a bummer of a trail system is looking promising. Singletrack was in good condition, a bit more traffic could certainly help in it's visibility - but props to whoever has been working out there, nice run you've got going.

    Side note - did see evidence of horses on singletrack.
