    Paugussett State Forest

    Looking to tackle Paugussett State Forest soon. Seems like there isn't a lot of mileage there but a lot of hills to conquer with many difficult areas. Sounds like I'll be giving my legs a work out. Anyone familiar with the area? Any pointers or comments about Paugussett?

    If you can track down Greengiant/Gremf here or on crankfire he's the builder/maintainer there and can give you the scoop.

    Completed most of the Lower Paugussett State Forest portion today. Hardly any single track as expected, lots of rocky double-track hills but not too bad. Nothing too difficult technical wise, depending about which direction your coming from. Got lost and ended up back on Rt-34 but able to find my way back. Did about 14 miles in 2.5-hours with a leisure pace.

    Completed the Upper Paugussett State Forest. As suggested by the PDF map, the blue trail isn't good for biking much at all as it's mostly a Hike-A-Bike Trail. The double-track Brody Road was great though. I could'nt find the Upper Gussy Trail either or the white trails. The blue trail was marked really well. Completed about 12 miles leisurely in about 3.3 hours.
