When do you ride? I ride most Sunday mornings, sometimes with a group and sometimes solo. I usually try to get out once or twice during the week as well, but now that it's light season, Snip is not usually in play - I have heard of a couple of people getting tickets for being in the park after dark. I know a few places to park for Snip that are out of the way, but I usually just ride Case or Crandalls for night rides.
Have you tried Crandalls? A fairly new trail system - not nearly as big as Snip, but 8-10 miles of lightly used, twisty singletrack in Tolland.
