If you head south out of the parking lot get ready to climb,immediately! Overall, this trail is not too techical but has lots of climbing. Once you get up to the ridge there will be a handful of trails that go both east and west off the ridge. These trails are usually a blast because they are techical & down hill but they trip back up to the ridge is usually a hike a bike. Your best bet is to ride south towards Berlin Mtn., the county's highest peak & 3-4 miles in from the parking lot. Once you get to Berlin Mtn, head south. There are more great views, singletrack and MORE climbing. The trail ultimately exits on Rt 43 but I have never made it that far. Reliable sources tell me that from the Rt 2 parking lot to Rt43 is approx. 7-8 miles. From Rt 2 to Rt43,it usually takes the better part of 2 hours.(long climbs) The better time to ride up hear in when it's dry. There are a few mud bogs & large puddles on the way to Berlin Mtn. Be prepared to climb and if possible come with someone who knows the area. Have fun.
head south on the Taconic Ridge.
