Pequonnock River Valley

Average Rating:    (4.58 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 26

The State-Owned recreation area is open to Mountain Bikers. There is one rail-trail, and on the east side of the river, there is a system of technical to semi-technical single and doubletrack. For a good fast workout, try to complete the railroad trail in under 10 minutes. For a more exciting ride, take the east trails and explore. Get lost, its fun!

Summary:
This place is awesome. It has a little big of everything. There are tight single track runs, uphill, downhill, rocks, logs, you name it. There are some great ledges to jump as well. Be prepared have a serious workout, and bring water!

Recommended Route:
Park on the street before the indian ledge park entrance if you are a non-trumbull resident, and head in there. From there just get lost and find your way back!

Summary:
This is a park that you can safely ride for months discovering new trails all the time. The great thing about this place is the spectrum of trails, you can go easy or hard and there are plenty of them. You can actual ride all the way to Redding on the trail system from the first park through 2 other parks and a trail system!

Recommended Route:
Red Trail.... some good technical rides on it.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wilton Woods; Cherry Lane; Cranbury

Summary:
This place is sweet. It is by far the best place in CT for freeriding. There aren't too many stunts here, but drops and rock walls range from 2 ft to 40 ft high! So you can either be an amature looking to improve or a professional pushing limits. It's also pretty good for XC. Large amounts of technical stuff, climbs, and downhills. Take the red trail and ride just below the top of the valley for killer drops and rock ledges. Ride the white trail in the middle of the valley for a sweet XC ride to Indian Ledge Park. Ride the blue trail for an awesome level but technical ride. Head to the pines for the freerider's paradise- drops as far as the eye can see.

Recommended Route:
Daniel's Farm Rd.
