Review

Intro

Miller's Pond has some of the best technical riding in Connecticut. There's quality singletrack the entire way with plenty of trickiness in the mix: big drops, fast rollers, natural log rides, and a few small bridges. 

What Makes It Great

The terrain makes this one a classic and will surely improve your riding skills. There are great views of the lake throughout the ride and in the autumn, the trails will explode with color. Experts will love taking on everything Miller's Pond has to offer while beginners can work their way up to the tougher stuff. 

Who is Going to Love It

Intermediate and advanced riders will have a blast in this playground but newer riders will have fun on the singletrack as well. There are always ways around the more difficult stuff.
