Rider questions

Q: Clockwise or counter
A: I beleve it to be either.

Q: Where do you pick up the trail shown in that video? It's not the Tunxis trail off Beaver Pond or any of the interior trails on site.
A: We started the day from the Sessions Woods Management office. The some of the trails we were on are unmarkeda and known by the locals. I am from louisianan so I am unable to give you info.

    Living close by, it's a nice little get away for some easy to mid level trail riding. Downhills are quick and uphills are pretty much the same. Just be aware of people hiking and dogs when going into the downhills.

    Beaver Pond Trail is 3 miles. Gravel base can be loose at times. Nice and wide for beginners, but "steep" hills, so kids under 10 or so would have trouble.

    Tunxis trail is accessible off Beaver Pond trail (counterclock-wise). Pick up Blue/Yellow dot on your right just after Crosscut trail and follow trail until you turn left on black dots (which lead back). Be prepared to carry/walk your bike 25% of the time. Lots of roots/rocks and one nearly vertical rock ledge.
