|Directions to Pachaug - Blue trailhead off 138: take rte 2 east to rte 395
east to 138 east, small dirt area is right after intersection with 201..
Description - Pachaug is
the largest state forest in the world.. OK in CT.. I have been
here twice now and would agree with the rave reviews on the street..
In this area you have so many networks of trails - pachaug - nehantic -
narragansett, plus many unmarked trails and fire roads.. The trails also
link up with Arcadia if your really crafty.. The trails are
somewhat hard to follow, hopefully bikerag can work on that with a good topo
map.. The trails vary from rocky singletrack, rocky double track,
really rocky double track, smooth single track through pine forests, even
some good slick rock riding (short sections).. Not too much vertical,
but very technical - I wasnt bored with too many sections and very little
hike a bike SO FAR!! Mount misery is a must!! Nice views and
wicked cool technical rocks - try it both ways!!
