On my way to pick daughter at ESU. When I checked Trails app showed that I was 2 miles away while on route 31. So for my first time it was quite a fun ride. Parked at main lot on Naussa road. Followed Nassua trail all the way over to connector. Really prefer that "side" of trail. Smooth and fast 90% of the time. Springs side loop and Rich wood trail are lots of fun. Pretty hard to get lost as you'll always see a house or hear the cars on nearby road. So even if it's getting dark, no need to worry.
Going back on he connector to Chips trail is indeed a challenge. Lots of switchbacks and rocky uphills. But no harm in getting off and walking if you take a turn too wide.
Overall a very enjoyable late summer morning ride. Next time will be even better as I now know the terrain and trails much better.
