Really nice, quiet trail system with several interesting loops. You can spend the better part of a Saturday winding around the connecting trails. Some short climbs, two fun berms on the Landing (heading east in from the Litchfield side), an excellent descent from Overlook, and nice tight singletrack on the Betty Mack. Rocky, rooty and occasionally swampy, it pays to bring bug spray. If you are unfamiliar with the area, stay on blazed trails or you could end up with a long, disorienting, unintended visit to Litchfield State Forest on the other side of the powerlines.
Here's an excellent PDF map of the area: http://www.shavings.net/images/maps/MTB/musquash.jpg
