Description

This trail begins in West Hartford Reservoir. This trail is a relatively smooth dirt path until it leaves the reservoir. From here, it becomes a rocky doubletrack and intersects with trails to Heublein Tower. After fording a small stream, riders will turn onto a classic fireroad until Stafford Road and the Metacomet Trail.
