Town Forest Trailhead
This trailhead provides an information kiosk, porta john, changing area, and much smaller parking area than Ascutney Outdoor Center. Riding from here is better suited to intermediate, advanced and expert riders and offers a variety of primarily single-track terrain: rock gardens, rollers, bridges, up and down through forest glades, bermed flow trails, and some ‘old school’ technical sections.
You can cruise easily over to the same Mile Long Field vantage point and picnic tables mentioned above by making your way up Cloud Climber and flow down Nimbus. The Cloud Climber route can also be used to access spectacular options once you’ve gained some altitude. For a central lap, follow Cloud Climber all the way to the top and descend twisty-techy Pass the Buck. Alternately, head further West over to Paradise Hill (truly its namesake) via technical connector trail Lynx and hit some wild features along the way. Either way, intermediate, advanced and expert riders are in for a treat over here! For those ready to challenge their nerves and endurance, the RidgeBack/South Ridge Run loop is a gem!
