    Best XC Trails in CT
    Top 3 anyone?

    Im looking for long, fast singletrack, & roller coasting type. Don't mind the occasional steeps. Being well maintained by locals helps also.

    That's a good question because I really don't see too many XC type trails in this state.

    There are not many smooth trails in CT, probably the smoothest/flowiest trails I know are at Salmon River in Colchester - really fun, mostly smooth, very flowy.

    My top three:
    1) Bigelow Hollow
    2) Nathan Hale
    3) Middlesex

    I would consider all of those challenging from a technical perspective rather than smooth and flowy.

    If you want buff, flowy XC trails your best bets are Robinson St Park in Agawam MA and Earls Trails in Amherst MA

    Minus in Stamford has the best flow trail in CT right now. Waldo in Southbury is also good- a lot of racers train there.

    I was in preference of something outside Hartford (just south of it actually), thanks Blue Sugar

    Huntington St. Park in Bethel has excellent fast flowing rollers on 10 ft trails with just enough rocky stuff to keep it interesting..Theres miles of it if your looking to build cardio on the mtb..The park also has lots of tight technical single track..Find the Chimney Trail..It'll keep you busy for over an hour..You WON'T clean it..Check it out..

    Miller's Pond and Trumbull are always an excellent ride.

    Years ago when I lived in Stratford, Trumbull and Westwoods (Guilford) were my favorites.

    1. Nassahegon. A lot of smooth flowy trail near the soccer fields. Well maintained.
    2. Graville. Lots of trail, well maintained, flowy but not super smooth, rolling with a few steeps.
    3. Mainus. Very nice, very well maintained flow trail on the Stamford side. A little small, though.

    Aspetuck / Trout Brook is simple for longer mile rides esp. if you loop and loop. In season, of course. And don't ride there during/right after a hard rain. The Sierra Clubbers aren't happy 'bout the bikes.
