Huckleberry Hill - Trail, Avon, Connecticut

Some good techinical single track, however, you may have to ride some dirt road to get around new housing developments. Several different loops can be taken.

The trail in my opinion is a great ride. I keep adding more and more technical trails. Many fun jumps and log rides. rocks and routes can get in the way but overall great ride. some bridges need work but is in my opinion a good ride for the intermediate field of bikers.

Tons of construction killing all of the good trails. There are some jumps (not dirt) but nothing over 3.5 feet. The terrain varies form small down hills to small inclines. Some of the trails are dry and worn in while some other trails on the lower half are muddy and filled with routes.

Compact area of red, orange, or white marked trails with blue trails intersecting. Mostly an easy ride with many logs and a few swampy areas to cross. Spur trail at northeast corner of loop continues into and across new housing development and on towards Canton Center where it hooks up with the "Tour de Canton" described in the Mountain Biking Guide to Southern New England.

Check map at trailhead on Huckleberry Hill Road; follow trail to bridge and try the outer loop going counter-clockwise.

Downhill Doug   [Mar 23, 2001]

The main area consists of three trails (all single track)that run parallel to each other along the side of the "hill". The 1st, runs just off h.h. rd and along a stream from the trail head to the condos. The 2nd runs the same except on the other side of the stream farther into the woods at the base of the "hill". The 3rd runs along the top of the "hill". There are connecting trails throughout the course to mix it up a bit. The ride from the condos to the trail head is a very gradual downhill for the most part on all 3 major trails. Taking the connectors from the top trail to the bottom trails are quick decents with many natural objects to launch off and riding up them is a good lung workout although short. Once familair with the area you can really fly along the trails but beware of people walking dogs!!!
There are other trails that branch off in the back area that are tight and twisty but nothing tough.
The area is very intermediate with a few technical sections of roots, rocks and bridges, some stream crossings but nothing unmanagable for an int. rider.
Mix it up a bit with different patterns of main trails and connectors. Look for big rocks and logs just off the trails to play on and have fun.
