    Connecting Great Brook and Russell Mill

    Instead of taking Janet Rd to get to the soccer fields parking lot at Russell Mill, is there a quicker way to get there from Great Brook?

    If I took Mt. Auburn St to get to Sullivan Rd/Falcon Ln are there any cut-throughs that will keep me on dirt? One of my least favorite sounds on the planet is knobbies on pavement. Thanks.

    You can take the ponds, easier when it is frozen. I'm sure some of the MV Nemba riders could chime in here.

    There's an entrance off Sullivan into RM, but I'm not sure if you can get there by way of Mt Auburn.

    NEMBA usually rides Rangeway > Sullivan

    Thanks for the info. I think we either need a bridge over that pond for the warm months or a canoe shuttle service.

    The shortest legal route is to take Suilvan road to Rangeway. Cross over RT 4. To North Ave. take a right on North Ave and the trailhead will be on you right. There are a few other ways but they cross over private land. The MTB project loop shows the loop and how to return via Janet road.
