Directions - rte 84 exit 168, right at exit. travel 11.5 miles through UCONN campus, take a left on 89, drive .75 miles and park in soccer field lot.  Trailhead is marked blue.

Description - Quite a few trails in this area around Mansfield Hollow..  Most are single track with some pretty root infested areas, but no rocks..  Some water bars were found on one section of the blue that may be off limits to bikes (oops).. Lots of tight single track following the river and surrounding the lake..   One great but short roller coaster section near the boat launch was pretty cool.  Some short steep technical root infested climbs too.  Decent riding spot!

Pre-ride Music:  Napalm Death - Twist the Knee, ______ - I wanna put you on a roller coaster......
Total Miles:  20? (or you can do a huge 45 mile all day loop on the nipmuck / natchaug - semi illegal though)..
Elevation Change Feet -14 mile ride was 60 ft
Nearest Coffee, Sushi or other food:   Pretty sure there's a donut shop near campus center on 195, bunch of restaurants too.  Chinese, Friendlies, drug store,  etc..  Or you can go further towards 84, take a right on rte 32??  and go to Willington pizza (on left)..  They gave us a free pizza for mentioning there business on bikerag!!  no joke..
