Summary:
Please Note: Trout Brook is closed to Bikers from 1/1 to 4/30.

Bradley Rd Lot is easiest to get to from the Merritt Exit 42, off exit go North about 3/4 mile and take right on Lyons Plain road. At second stop sign (3 way intersection, go diagnally left - 10 o'clock) go another mile or so and the road will bend sharply left Bradley road is on the right (about 7 miles from exit 42)

Recommended Route:
Take Blue Trail (.90 mile uphill) to Yellow trail to Purple (pass orchard) to Orange (great down hill) to White trail to Red-White (pass by Golf course) to Red (far end of property). Coming back take White to green. Total loop 9 miles with a lot of hills, some technical stuff, but you get great average speed!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wilton Woods - Wilton
Mianus River Park - Stamford

Summary:
This is a great local trail - fun single track through classic New England country side. Having said that it’s not spectacular - no breathtaking views, no long heart pounding descents just steady, fun aerobic Sunday morning riding. Lots of trails to choose from, great novice riding.

Recommended Route:
Anywhere - you cant get lost in suburbia...

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mianus River Park - much the same as above

Summary:
"Awesome" best describes this place, a mix of fast double track with single track, throw in a couple of technical rock gardens and killer hills. Please be careful of hikers and horses! Every intersection has a map posted on a tree, so you can not get lost!

Recommended Route:
Start out at Bradley St. Parking lot and take Blue-Green-White-Red-White-Red/White-Yellow-Blue a total loop of 10 miles with a total mix of everything, including gut wrenching climbs at the end !

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wilton Woods
Indian Ledge
Cranbury (night rides)

Summary:
Hidden gem - not for freeriders but a great xc training ground. I typically ride here once a week after work, takes about 1:30 to do the whole loop, topping out at Jump Hill on rt 58. Some great technical sections & mostly pretty fast. The singletrack here is still narrow & perfect, so PLEASE don't widen the trails by trying to ride around mud. Great place to ride at night.

Recommended Route:
start on white/blue & follow blue up to jump hill, around Jump hill loop & back down white (fire road descent.) Good at night too.

Summary:
This is my local trail...watch out for loose dogs without leashes..and PLEASE STOP / SLOW DOWN for hikers otherwise they complain to the land manager. I bike and hike these trails....mostly singletrack except for the lower white trail. Lots of climbing; however, this effort is rewarded with great downhill sections. Some sections are really hairy...hike a bike...and you MUST OBEY the signs which prohibit bikes on certain trails. Check out the blueberry patch in July....Do not ride in mud, Troutbrook has a high water table and even when its dry, there are lots of muddy sections.

This is a fun course....i love it..something for intermediate and expert...beginners..stay on white trail until you get to Jump Hill..that when it get knarly..also the blue trial is good....get a map and pick a trail...fall is a beautiful time to go....

Recommended Route:
Jump Hill parking...Rt. 58...opposite Country Club Lane in Easton.
