Directions - From 91 south take exit 24 (rte 99 or silas dean highway south) right at exit, drive about 5 miles through stoplights and look for a left turn onto Nooks Hill Road, then take your 3rd hairpin left (no road name but some industrial buildings name)..  anyway, keep going, follow under RR tracks (tight squeeze), and take a left onto Field road.  Follow field road and just before you cross the tracks again, there is a dirt parking lot on your right.  Cant miss it!

Description -  OK - I had very low expectations of this place and was pleasantly surprised!!  There are some fire roads here, some double track and even some not so exciting single track...  BUT, and its a big BUT - we found some awesome trail sections, crazy stunts, and plenty of other moderate trail enhancements that kept us intrigued.  There are NO rocks here - I sh!t you not... not even one..  But there are tons of logs to ride over, some small ramps and bridges, one section of really cool small gully's, then a steep drop into a big gully with stairs on the other side..  Another great section was this off - camber roller coaster on the edge of a cliff..  Great stuff..  This place is very different than any other place I have ridden in CT..  Hats off to the guys that are building the trails and maintaining them.  There are even some fantastic views of the CT river..  The area you will be riding is TINY, but for some reason you really don't feel like its that small..  Do a quick loop here, if you still have energy, just go to Middlesex..

Pre-ride Music:  Im going with G&R welcome to the jungle for no apparent reason
Total Miles:  7 or 8 including all fire roads.
Elevation Change Feet - VERY LITTLE - total A-cup ride
Nearest Coffee, Sushi or other food:  there is a whole donut and DD on silas dean HWY..FOOD - Right near 91 on 99 there is on the border Mexican, other side of highway about 1/4 mile away Sapporo Japanese, and I think there is an Indian restaurant too!
