Mountain Biking Upper Paugussett State Forest

  Add a review
#43 of 110 mountain bike trails in Connecticut
#4950 in the world

Trail along the water from the boat ramp is ueber technical but gets worse once past the "Kissing Oaks" (two oak trees that have grown into one another). From there, you can follow the trail back down to the water's edge and ride to the end, looping back on the forest road. Many unmarked trails throughout the forest.

  • No E-bikes permitted
