“A scenic ride through Pachaug State Forest.”— Leslie Kehmeier
Stay on a fairly straight trajectory until Trail 2 Rd. Take a right here and then pedal a short section to a left turn on Lee Rd.
Look for the red blazes and then turn right to jump back onto the Pachaug Multi-Use Trail for more forest riding with roots and rocks popping up occasionally. Follow the winding trail for a good stretch to Hell Hollow Rd, the turnaround point.
Now it's time to turn around and see the trail from a different perspective. Retrace your steps back to Lee Rd. Go left and then left again at the intersection with Trail 2 Rd. Now heading east, you'll bear right on Cutoff Rd. Pedal on the easy dirt road to Trail 1 Rd.
Turn right here for the last section back to the beginning of the ride.
