Deer Leap Natural Area, Windham
This area consists of 54 acres along two ponds. The main trail is a single-track loop of about a mile. You can also ride the edge of the pond to the dirt road and back to the parking lot for another mile loop. The most interesting aspect of this area is the rock cliffs. Some are at least 60 feet and would be an excellent test of your top rope rock climbing skills. In the winter, snow shoeing would be an awesome use of the land. Also, technical mountain bikers can find a few rock drops to play on. With only a few miles of trails to explore Deer Leap won't make for an all day outing. But it is a very enjoyable place to ride.
