    Nassahegan State Forest, Burlington, CT - June 11th, 2008

    I went to Nassahegan after work today for the first time. I started out at the soccer field and pretty much only knew where the start was and not much else. Did a bit of exploring, didn't really get to far, but I did have fun (for the most part). All told I rode for about an hour, I'd like to go back when I have some more time to do some more exploring. The only slight bummer was finding two deer ticks on my legs after the ride.

    Nice! What type of trails did you hit?
    I ski double black diamonds.

    It seems like most of the stuff where I was is part of the CT Blue Trail system, which I'm not sure if you're technically supposed to ride on. Anyway, those trails are relatively wide hiking trails. I found one really cool section of unmarked single track that was really fun. I think there's more like that to be found

    Will do. There's another starting point that might have some better options right off 69. I rode a very small section of the northern most trails on this map:

    This does sound like a cool place:

    I vote it for the next AZ group ride.

    I second that vote, there seems to be a ton of options. I can't wait to get back there to do some more exploring.

    Moved the idea of a ride next week to the T&E forum.
