What's the best place to ride near Danbury?
Going to be visiting some relatives tomorrow afternoon and I'd like to get some riding in. I'd prefer techy and/or flowy single track over fire roads and vistas. I don't want to drive too far though. How is that Tarrywhile park?
Check out Huntington State Park or Wilton Woods, both are within 30min. Check out FCNEMBA.org for trail maps of both. Wilton would be more fun for you, log rides, rock gardens, ample drops... if you go to WW (Bradley Road in Wilton) head in clockwise, Blue trail to red trail (stuntery trail) to orange cross stream, back to blue and then counter-clockwise and bomb blue out. Park should be good, we do a ton of work.
Huntington is nice as well, you'd probably enjoy the Chimney trail quite a bit.
Trumbull is further and depending on what you want could be Full Face or just techy XC...
... You don't have a chili with you do you?
What he said. Wilton is small/short, Hunt has more mileage, both are good.
I'm in Danbury - if you're back any time, there is some very good stuff that requires no significant drive time. Some other, even better stuff in the 30 minute drive range.
I'm assuming you posted this about Friday, and I'm too late anyhow though.

Thanks for the info. I got stuck in traffic so I couldn't ride anyway. I ended up getting a Mianus ride in the wee hours of my trip. I've ridden Huntington but never Trumbull.

Yeah, trip didn't go as planned. Ended up in Stamford.
