Summary:
this is no place for a newbie unless you go the power line route .once you get some skill and some good stamina this is one hell of a place to ride. Bring lots of deet Misquetoe heaven in some spots.

Reviewed by: John , from Hartford

Summary:
The trails are epic and worthy of the ride to get there. Super technical and challenging, a narrow board bridge, Hellgate has some awesome downs and climbs. All trails seem to interconnect so its hard to get lost. There was one trail with a really cool overlook view of a neighboring town. The widowmaker is the steepest hill Ive ever done, very rocky and loose terrain. Its a real wheel bender.

Recommended Route:
The entrance near the reservoir is tricky to find.
The hellgate trail was awesome. Its a long slow climb with a great descent. A real treat for any biker.
The first time I entered near a yellow gate which was wrong, the real entrance is a few hundred yards to the
left at the end of the guardrail. Once I found the pipeline, the other trails are easy to find.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Upper Yeti , Armageddon on the south side of Rt 202 in the Bearhole area. Awesome ride. We rode all day and never got bored with the terrain. Epic New England riding.
