Summary:
This place blew me away and tossed me around. Everything is tough, no beginner stuff here. Never seen so many north shore style bridges in my life. This is the closest you will get to BC on the east coast. However, some of the bridges are not well kept, and are rotting a little bit, but there is still more then enough to ride in one day. If you wanna know more about this place drop me an email at Adam625wlerw@aol.com, or check out the video "WOOD" and "GIGGLES" on www.iwantmymtb.com

Recommended Route:
Go anywhere, everywhere you look there is something to hit. Always keep an out off trail as you ride along for anything that could be a drop, cause it probably is!

Summary:
This place is nuts. The man made stunts here are sick.
Tons of drops and a couple of teeters that are so high your nose will bleed. If you like riding on narrow strips of wood 6-10 feet in the air, then this is your place. A few easier, intro-to-freeriding, stunts are also there for those with less gnads. Great place to go hoist a few and work on your cat like balance, agility and dexterity.

Recommended Route:
Commuter Lot in Bolton off of 384. Ride behind lot to old drive-in. Keep riding away from parking area and bear to the left on one of many sandy trails. Enter woods, pass campsite and ride up to top of ridge. then explore.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None like this BC, free-ride stuff.(Maybe tyler Mill in Walingford)

Summary:
There are lots of technical riding and there are big drops, crazy tetter totters, just a lot of North Shore stuff but not as big, just explore there are things set up all over the area. e-mail me if you want to go riding,
so have fun and play it safe

Recommended Route:
Enter thru the trailhead at the comuter parking lot near the Old Bolton Drive In movie theater. Enter thru the trail head and head thru the old drive in movie lot, head towards the back and to the left and you will enter into the woods to a teen party spot just beyond is an old beat up car just past the car is a trail heading up, take that trail to the top of the ridge and explore.

Summary:
This area is more of a freeriders playground, to practice balance and jumping/droping skills, it is loaded with lots of natural rock drops and stunts, the stuff it is extremely fun but not for the average rider, it is for expert downhillers and freeriders, not beginners, explore and have fun.
