    For a small park, there's lots of technical climbs, big jumps, small jumps, skinnys and even a bit of flow. Lots of fun.

    The map here is not complete. There's a red trail that's very technical.

    It really depends what you are looking for. If you want to rack up miles and smash some decents, then this is not the place for you. If you're looking for some drops to session, then this is definitely the lace for you. Make sure to hit the red trail as that is where most of the features are, everything from drops to jumps, rock rolls and log rides.

    Agreed Taino, flow only really exists on the west blue down. Although the red does have good flow once you ride it a few times...the lower section is fun.

    My weekday ride side since it is close to work. Great new blue line adjusted on the left climb (west) from Branch Brook lot. Nice and flowy with fun jumps. The trail gnomes have done well!!

    Great little park. I would say this is more of an intermediate advanced park to ride. There are a few challenging climbs, there are several stretches of rocks, a few bridges and fell trees to hop over...

    The Blue Trail East is the recommended starter from the Branch Brook parking lot. This flowy uphill features occasional rocky challenges and varied terrain throughout.

    Rock strewn and rough, the Orange trail hugs the river and offers great scenic views along the way.

    The White east-west trail to the north is a commonly-used connector between the Blue East and Blue West trails. Unmarked terrain challenges and other trails off to the side add a variety of interesting riding possibilities.

    The northernmost section of the Blue Trail East is a super scenic ride with a long challenging rocky section.

    Red Trail (Formerly known as the
    Black Diamond) is twisty and fast featuring switchbacks and technical challenges galore. This is THE trail destination in the park. A fun ride for any type of rider.

    The Yellow trail heading south glides by a small open field camping area before plunging into the central stream valley. Lots of ups and downs and rock-strewn scenery throughout this central area make it all worth exploring...

    Going southward, once past the intersection with the Red, a wonderful rockless portion of the Blue trail sweeps through a curvy downhill that flows like butter. This is a favorite spot to go full throttle before leaving the park from the Branch Brook parking lot.
