Update 2008!!:  Rumor on the street is they are giving tickets for riding the blue trail at nepaug. 

Directions - Off of I84 take the Farmington Rt 4 exit (Exit #39). Follow Rt4 until you  junction with Rt179 (there is a stop light). Rt4 will go left and you will continue  straight on Rt179. Follow Rt179 to Canton where it junctions with Rt202. Take a left  at this light onto Rt202(Saybrook Fishouse is on the right). The entrance is approximately  2.5 miles up 202. You will see a Tunxis trail sign and a dirt road on the right. There is  a dirt parking lot on the left, but we park up the dirt road on the right about 200 feet.  You will see places to park.

If coming from Rt.44 you will just follow the signs for 202 when you reach Canton Center.

Description - What a great riding area!  I would say its a cross between trail of tears at the cape, Middlesex and Trumbull.  What I am trying to say is that if your riding hear you will be crying as if you were being RIDDEN by a bull..  Anyway..  Lots of great winding single track with some loose stuff to watch out for, plus rock gardens you dream about, plus slick-rock sections, plus steep rock trumblesque drops, with plenty of fire roads to get you home when your injured and crying like a little baby..  Recent additions include crazy 3-6' hucks like Jaba and sick rock rollers..

Loops- Blackjack! 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-20-21

Pre-ride Music:    Stitches (hardknox remix)

Nearest Coffee, Sushi or other food:  On your way there is a dunkin donuts on route 4 on the left across from golf course driving range (QM will probably be there whacking his balls)..
