This area being developed as a play area by someone. Who could it be? Newest featuers include a bridge over a stream. A 6-7' drop is in the works...

There are a few trails that go left off Bull Hill Rd (south). One of them goes all the way down to the residential area behind what used to be Putnam Ford/Lincoln dealership (boating store now?)
You cross a powerline, too, which is a blast. There is a lot of riding up there, VERY technical, and be prepared to bushwack some, the trails tend to get overgrown.
Hint: Buy a USGS Topographical map and drive towards the biggest section of green on it. New England is filled with cool old logging trails.

At the north end of the loop, before crossing the quinnebaug river on the old foot bridge, go Left, or west up the washed out road. Take a right on the paved road, and then your first left on the next paved road. This is Bull Hill Road. This goes straight through to Woodstock, ending on Roseland Park Road.
