I have bee away from Mountain biking for 15 years, and wanted to start it up again. I used to ride Trumbull quite a bit, and went there, knowing it would be a bit too technical for getting acclimated all over again.
I had also ridden the Supply Ponds.
I decided to give Branford a shot once again. I was happy I did. There are a lot of easy dirt road type rides to be done, but also single track that is 'accessible' for beginners and intermediate riders. If my memory serves there are some pretty good rides to be had here.
On this first time out, I took it easy, as I hadn't ridden here in so long and didn't know where trails would end up, or what a downhill schuss would wind up tossing at me.
I plan on going back soon and exploring it further. I left there with a smile on my face.
Oh - like all public access - people just can't seem to keep their dogs on leashes...Thank |
This is mostly easy and fun, great for a lunch hour ride. There is some singletrack in the southeast corner that's OK. Lots of people walking dogs here, but they are not averse to bikes. It's a great spot to induce a new rider to the sport.Thank |
