    Good rides within an hour of Norwalk

    I will be in town next week, and visiting periodically over the summer. I'd like to bring my SS hardtail for after work rides, so far I have seen info on mtbr for:

    Bradley - small (12 minutes loop?)
    Wilton - maybe my best bet but might be one big rock/root garden with little flow?
    Cranberry - pretty tame

    Would be willing to drive a bit for some flow. Am mid-pack sport class rider.

    Thanks in advance for good advice...

    Check out the map on http://www.fcnemba.org and go to Trails
    Also check out trail guide on Crankfire.com or Bikerag.com

    Plenty of XC, Tech and Freeride well with in an hour

    My Favorite near Norwalk is Wilton Town Forest, Tech and FR
    For XC it would be Trout Brook in Easton
    For the full gambit XC, Tech FR it is Trumbull

    For truly a treat and it is 1 hour 15 away is Millers Pond in Durham, there are around 100 log rides and other techy stuff

    Mianus River Park - on Greenwich/Stamford border. Plenty of reviews on the internet of this place.

    Try Trout Book in Easton, only 10 minutes north of exit 42 off merritt parkway (rt 15)

    Bradley Road Parking lot, trail maps at kiosk and you can do about 11 miles w/o repeating and 2 one mile uphills....

    Also, it's just slightly over an hour, but Blue mountain in Peekskill NY has world class singletrack, and tons of it.
    I call for a mandate to allow only road bikes on trails to limit our speeds and increase our line picking skills-FB

    Mianus and Huntington

    Mianus and Huntington have smoother, faster, less techy (but by no means easy) trails that are good for race training. Just don't go railing any blind corners, okay?
