    James Goodwin State Forest

    Rode 90% of Goodwin yesterday, completed about 14 miles in 2.5 hours. Great place to ride! While there isn't a lot of technical stuff, there are a lot of natural rock gardens on the blue trail and switchbacks throughout the blue trail and the blue/white trail. Not much hike-a-bike at all. The blue trail was great, mostly single track. All the trails were well marked with a number of map stations along the way which had "You are here" indicated on them which other map stations of other trails in Connecticut don't often show. The map below was spot on. Didn't see too many other people mountain biking, just a couple with their baby along the way. Not hilly at all. Good single track and double track trails throughout.
