Southbound (coming from Hartford): Exit 14, take left of exit onto E.

Description - Many winding trails in a small area. Some think this place is haunted but I only saw 2 apparitions there last night which seems the norm. Great spot for night rides, Viscously awful spot for WET rides. Some horse dung, some used condoms and the occasional pair of stained tighty whites hanging from a tree shouldn't scare you away. Very Flat, just a few semi-challenging technicalities. A must do ride in CT. Watch out when the soccer moms are in heat... Stunts are gone!!
