Albert Byram Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

This is by far the most beautiful trail in the Fairfield Connecticut region. It is wild and untamed, and unknown going West along the Byram River on much of the trail system. Even unknown to fisherman, I caught a 2lb native Brook Trout in this river {pink flesh}. There are a wide variety of trails coming off of the main trail that starts off easy, but becomes progressively more difficult. There are some trails that are strictly for professionals. There is no entrance to this trail system, but only a dirt side pull off by the trails start. To identify the entrance, you have to look to the right driving up the road, and see about twenty feet in a couple of wood poles with red painted on the squares. Don''t confuse this with the Audobon where the entrance is a few hundred feet further up the road. Mountain Bikers are not allowed to park there.

Summary:
Since I live near here I decided to check it out last week. VERY overgrown with not a lot of clear markings for trails. There are 2 entrance, one about 1/3 mile up and then just past it up a bit of a hill there is another one in a little field by this old rock wall foundation. There are a lot of low-lying areas too so with all the rain we've had there were lots of places I stopped to walk. I only had a half hour to explore but would like to hit this up again once things dry out a bit, if anyone is game to join let me know.

Summary:
Well-kept. No hikers to slow you down. Very nice cross country single track.

On the other hand the trail is really cluttered by nature because of the lack of traffic. The leaves from last fall and branches and twigs all around . Tree logs, impossible to jump over and to high to ride underneath. Little twigs that your wheels pick up, end up stuck in your wheel, derailleurs and even into your flesh.

I believe if more cyclist begin to visit this trail it s gonna get better.

Recommended Route:
By summer 2010 the bridge on the Riversville Rd side is out. You gotta take the Kings St.
