Trail Q&A
Rider Questions


Q: how do I find the main loop? Is it marked with blazes? -Miwako

A: Park at Nassahegan Ball Fields. Ride away from Punch Brook Road behind baseball fields - the White trail is back there. It heads East and turns South toward Stone Rd. Keep following to Red/White signs. This leads back to Miller Rd/Punch Brook. It's pretty well marked, but loading Strava will keep you on track. There's lots of white/white trail markers that can be confusing. In general, the main path is well-worn, so keep going on the widest white path and you'll stay on the main loop.

Review: Nass is a must for any avid MTBer in central CT. Park at the ball fields off Punch Brook, find the main White trail just south of the baseball diamond and go. The place is huge with over 1000 acres and 30-40 miles of singletrack goodness. Stay on the well-marked White-blazed trails (Red/Blue/Green/Purple/Yellow) and avoid the blue trails (for hikers). Kudos to the state forest keepers and NEMBA for working out an awesome trail system. Watch out for bears!

Review: Some really great riding, something for everyone. Miles and miles of trails. in all got in a good 15 miles. Great single track. The trail to sessions woods is really something. One thing to watch for is someone walking two dogs. The first dog is small Border collie, black and white, and very happy to see you. Running off leash, he is no problem. His name is Jake. The other dog is a large Bloodhound. You have to watch for this guy. While he was leashed he was able to pull away and attacked me, bighting me on the thigh, leaving two puncture wounds. The owner had to pull the dog off, I did not get the owners name I just wanted to get away from dog. This was on the white trail right at the connection with the green and white when your coming up from the ball fields.

Review: Yesterday was my first time at Nassahegon. It was probably the most fun I've ever had on a mountain bike. Great flowey trails that were just a hoot to ride.

Similar Trail: The Schralpin' Turn segment at Waldo, but for miles and miles.

Review: Great mix of flowy trails, fast downs, and efficient climbs. Miller time is a stand out trail. Huge berms for what feels like miles. I feel like there are way more trails that we didn't hit so find a good map and plan for a long ride.

Review: Great ride. Enter at the main gate and follow blue/purple to blue/yellow. Lots of single track trails up and down hills. Definitely a great place to ride.
