CT - Nathan Hale state forest - Mountain Bike Trail Review with Map and Pictures
|Update 2011 - Its been a while and man
was it fun to ride some nice techy old school singletrack at nathan hale.
Some really great lines, awesome flow, techy rock gardens, few log rides,
few drops.. Thumbs way up.. Good times.
Directions - From Hartford, take route 84 to 384 to end.. Then Follow Route 6 for 2.55 miles and take left (its your 4th left) on south STREET.. NOT SOUTH ROAD.. NOT SOUTH ROAD.. Follow South Street for 3.4 miles, take right, park along stone wall past red building.
Description - Little tidbits of everything in here. Not a highly used area so some trails are soft, but many singletracks can be found . Map is preliminary, pretty much just shoes a loop without turns. Work in progress. All in all its a mix of double track, grassy double track, fern singletrack, rock gardens and technical singletrack with a few enhancements. Couple KA style log rides, bunch of 2-3 ft drops, couple really cool rollers..
NEW - National Geographic Topo file -
||Total Miles: Loop is about 8 miles,
many other trails..
