About this trail
Some really interesting singletrack installed within the last few years, some dual track, and then some really technical stuff that pops out of no where. A hidden treasure between New Haven and Hartford

Review: Nice easy riding at Wadsworth.

Most of the trails are smooth, with only a few areas of rocks and roots, and only a few small sections of moderate climbing.
Trails can get very busy, esp on weekends. Many walkers with dogs off leash and occasional horses with piles of crap in the middle of the trail.
Do not pay the weekend fee at the main entrance: park either at the mansion or the other end of the park in the free lot....do not park illegally or you will get a $75 ticket from the man.

Review: This is one of the more beautiful state parks in Connecticut. For riding, the majority of the trails in the park should be considered easy, though at some times a little hilly, and a couple spots that are technical if you choose to seek them out. The main trails tend to be wide, and on weekends or busy times can contain a lot of foot traffic. Numerous side trails exist, some well marked, others not at all. While you in theory could get lost, it's not likely. And few if any trails lead you into highly technical terrain, none you can't quickly back out of. Almost all of the trails are good quality single track with a few roots and rocks to keep you on your toes. But otherwise, almost anyone could ride these trails with nary a concern. In summer you must pay to park at the official parking lot off Main Street (Rt 157), instead, start either at Wadsworth mansion's parking area and find trails leading west and down to Laurel Grove Road and into the park, or start out at Wadsworth Falls parking lot, which is smaller, but free. LBS Pedal Power leads rides here weekly most of the year, and info can be found on their website. EDIT: As if 2018, a few more short single track trails have been added by locals. These tend to be intricate, maybe intermediate, though not overly technical, but they do add to the overall length of what's possible, making the park more worthy of your time.
