Mountain Biking West Rocks State Park

***   Add a review
#80 of 110 mountain bike trails in Connecticut
#10173 in the world

West Rock Park is a popular ride among the locals because it is so convenient to the city of New Haven. Trails are marked with colors. Yellow trail is a climb only worth of the Hammer Gods. Red Trail is nice and flat. White trail goes around Lake Wintergreen. Blue trail, another particular tough climb leads to one of the best views, looking directly at down town New Haven

    DO NOT GO ON PURPLE TRAIL! It is so rocky and technical that you have to walk almost the entire trail. This is a good place for hiking. Not biking

    There a few difficult, technical climbs and the view of New Haven is nice from the top. Was easy to get to trail head via directions here. Trails are marked w/swatches on trees and at times are difficult to spot.
