Directions - Rte 2 East to Exit 13 (Rte 66). Take right off exit and immediately come to traffic light. Take left at light and proceed approx. 1 mile (or less) and will come to fork in road. Stay right at fork and follow for approx. 2- 3 miles (+/-) and look for Bull Hill Rd on right (as road begins to climb up a gradual hill). Follow Bull Hill Rd for a few miles (steep uphill and winding road at first and then flattens out through residential area). Continue on Bull Hill until road begins steep winding downhill section. Toward bottom of hill is hair pin turn in road where there is a gravel parking area which is where our ride begins.

There are NO Motorized vehicles allowed here. No dirt bikes.  No ATV's. No automobiles. No Pickups.  No heavy equipment.

Note: If coming from south of Htfd, you could take Rte 9 South to Middletown, then pick up Rte 6 East through East Hampton and proceed to center of Marlborough where you would take a right at the traffic light and then follow above directions from there.

Description - A very scenic, cool, hilly single track ride that even has a couple stunts to play on.  Starting on the railroad bed you will find some moderately technical single track to the north and south.  Crossing the river over the cumstock bridge, the trail follows the river for a bit and you start to gain elevation (all ride-able!!), onward, you will find one great slick-rock-ish climb - several cool descents with many airtime drops.  A mello seesaw and 3 foot drop for the free-riders.  All in all a great place - Try not to get arrested by cops in bikini's like MOAS though!!
