Take 10 - Best mountain biking spots
Pachaug State Forest, Voluntown, Conn.
Located in the eastern part of the state, Pachaug is Connecticut's largest public space. The 23,000-acre state forest plays host to an incredible amount of single- and double-track trails. What does that mean to us mountain bikers? A chance to pick a trail, connect the dots, and pedal for as long as our legs can hold up. I usually ride past the H.H. Chapman and Mount Misery Camping Area signs, turning left at the small Mount Misery sign. I cruise up and down the small hill, then choose one of the numerous double tracks that fork off. Make your own loop, have fun, and go early, so you can make it out by sunset.
