Trail Directions
Take the Merrit park way to exit 40N Southbound, and I think 39 Northbound, onto Route 7 North. The exit will indicate which exit Route 7 is. Go north and take a Right on to Kensett Ave. The land mark used to be a Friendly's, but it closed down, so just watch for Kensett Ave., it's easy to miss. Make sure to be in the right lane to turn right. From I-95 take the Route 7 connector and once in Norwalk, proceede as above.

Summary:
This place is really rather tame. There're a couple (literally) cool tech spots. No jumps, really, or drops... pretty smooth in most places. Good deal of dog poo. A lot of walkers at the right hours. If you are looking for a casual ride, this place is great. Stay away if advanced.

Recommended Route:
Enter parking lot, far end past the playground is where you want to start typically. Then just loop around.

Summary:
this is a small park that has not much in the way of hard riding but it does have some streams, rock gardens stuff like that. this is a good park if you live in the area but if you have to come from afar, i would find some where else.

Recommended Route:
go deep into the park it has all the good stuff there

Summary:
Dopeness fo yo mama.

Recommended Route:
Bunny hop the dog doo if possible, but if you hit some, there is a water faucet near the pcinic area that is turned on during the summer.

If facing the picnic area from the main parking lot, start out at the trail end on the far right end side and loop around the outside loops or go left into the woods adjacent to grumman rd and cut acruss the road where the new entrance road is and do the perimeter trails there. Either way you should cross the river twice from either direction.

Lots of trails packed in together, well maintained, some ups and downs, fast track, you have to search and seek to find technical stuff. Enjoy.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trumbull - Pequonnock. Greenwich - Mianus. Redding - Huntington.

Summary:
This place is better than the bad reviews would suggest! I went there expecting a lot of fire road & double track, but it was fairly close to home so i thought I'd check it out. There IS a lot of fire road and double track, but if you pay attention there is also a fair amount of single track, rock wall crosings, a few rock gardens & stream crossings too. You have to hunt for the good stuff. I agree that it's not worth a long drive, but if you're in the area, check it out - I got a good 1 hour plus ride exploring all the little side trails. It was a beautiful Saturday and there were NO other riders on the trails. (Only a few dog walkers)

Recommended Route:
Start out at the extreme south end of the parking lot - and ride the perimiter.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mianus is still the best in the area
