West Rock Ridge SP, Hamden, CT
Rockland Preserve, Madison, CT
The Rockland Preserve is a town owned property where, including Pisgah, 20 miles of trails have been created, solely by volunteers. The trails are for non-motorized use and are excellent for mountain biking, walking, running and dog walking.
The best description of these trails can be found on the Madison website. This Trail Map is from that website as well.
There are three parking areas.
That's right, we're switching things up again this week. 2 weeks ago we hit up the fine trails in Harwinton, now we've lined up some tour guides for Burr Pond in Torrington!
We'll have two groups - one which is likely to hit all the rocky goodness they can find, and the other will take a toned down approach. For those who haven't been , this will be a good chance to try out some different riding from Burington. Not sure what the mileage will be, but it will be fun!
We'll meet at the Burr Pond boat launch parking area (699 Burr Mountain Road, Torrington) between 5:30-5:45. We will be rolling by 6 at the latest. As always this is an intermediate level no drop ride, so come on out and have some fun!
Join Dennis and Margie for another of our no-drop Monday social rides. This time we'll get in a nice cool morning ride!
Geared toward newer riders but we always split up into two groups and have a faster and longer ride, too.
Depending on the group you go with you could be riding a mellow 4-6+ miles or a faster 8-10+ miles with more climbing and technical features.
Meet at the Nassahegan soccer fields at 8:00 a.m. with the goal of rolling out by 8:15.
The mountain bike park is now open with lift access to five trails from Top to Bottom and four more on the lower Mt. including the concreate runs with more to come.
