On Saturday, April 9 Central CT NEMBA will be hosting the first build day at Peter’s Rock in North Haven, CT.
We’ve been mapping out the park’s hilly terrain since last fall and have some pretty fast and flowy trails planned.
Already this spring our crew of some of the best local builders has roughed in the first 5+ miles of trail, and there’s lots more to come.
For our first trail day we will be putting together crews to bench, build berms, and put together a bridge.
There will also be a park cleanup event going on to clean up litter from the parking lots and other areas at the park.
If you’re interested in joining us or want to keep up with the trail system, follow us at Peter’s Rock Singletracks.
We will be posting more information about this and future trail days there.
You do not have to be a member of NEMBA to help us build trails.
You just have to want to make all of our riding experiences better.
But, be sure you've signed NEMBA's Annual Waiver.
Location: 133 Middleton Ave North Haven, CT.
Bring gloves, shovels, rogue hoes, saws, pruners, rakes, water and a snack.
We will have 2-3 crews benching and building berms.
We also need a crew to help move lumber to build a bridge and may even cut a log ride or two.
If you are not inclined to any of these, there will also be groups there helping to clean up the park for Earth Day.
Please email me, Matthew Fuggi so we can have an adequate head count and let us know if you have any special trail building skills (carpentry, log cutting, etc.).
This Intermediate/Advanced ride will be pushing off at 6:30pm.
Contact Dave: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You don't have to be a member of NEMBA to join us.

The Trolley trail system can best be accessed off Scuppo Rd., Woodbury.
These trails were built by NEMBA volunteers and run parallel to the long existing Trolley bed trail.
The first trail is "Trolley Dash" which is a lollypop trail with some rollers and skinies and is 2 miles long with Red blazes.
Riders can also access another lollypop trail called "Off your Trolley" from Trolley Dash.
This trail is a bit more technical and includes some rock garden downhill sections and is also 2 miles.
These trail have been in the works for nearly 3yrs Thanks to Paula Burton and Ryan Tucker and their experience with advocating for trails in Woodbury.
We also have permission to build another trail that will extend this system onto trails on Tuttle Road.
Note: The town map above only shows the old railbed. The Trailforks map will be updated as more trails are created. Read more about Trolley Trails, Woodbury
