Went there today and I'm not sure if yous was the right trail, it was called Bristol Park. Not really good trail terrain and there were trees knocked down blocking my path. Only did the smaller trail that wasn't even 2 miles long. Better luck next time

When I want to take a long ride to New Haven, its by this trail. I really love the partial shade and the restaurants nearby.

This has quickly become my favorite trail thus far in CT. First time there I went up one side to the peak, shot some great photos of myself, bike and the lake. Then "trekked" down the rocky terrain. It was very bumpy and fast paced. Took about 30mins to go up and back down and I loved it

The location of this trail on this app is off, I followed Ash B.'s directions and had a great hike with my pup. Took my time and did about 5 miles in 3 hours. Not a single person on trail!

We went a mile out of our way in the beginning, I don't know how we missed the very first turn, we ended up on someone's private property, I guess, the trails are marked pretty good. We followed the blue/red trail to blue trail, then back to the blue/red trail. It's not a very difficult trail, I would list this as easy to moderate, the moderate being that you do have to watch your footing a couple of times, but for the most part it is easy. It took us 3 hours to do the loop, that is including the extra mile we did go. We did go counter clock wise as well. We enjoyed it quite a bit.

First day biking at Huntington. We hooked up with a regular who was leaving. Jared unloaded his bike and graciously gave us a 5 mile tour of the park. I loved it! Lots for everyone. In my limited experience, there seemed to be plenty of trails for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. Can't wait to go back next weekend.
