I can see why Rockland is rated number 1 in CT, even though I prefer Cowles and Nassahegan(longer downhill sections). Well marked and a shout out to the generous volunteer staff that keep these trails very well maintained. East Loop, Dark Side and Dirt Church are as fun as it gets with some very well thought out construction(berms, switchies, skinnies, rollers, flows, rock gardens-just about everything.
Like the signs say, try not to ride after heavy rains. These trails have held up well after heavy use but would hate to see the kind of erosion we see at the West Hartford Reservior.
