favorite has to be the one i built. its in essex county, so I won't talk about locations.
after a switch back down a hill, there's a tiny log to cross and then you veer just right off the trail and there is a log ramp that's maybe 12 feet long that rolls you up to the top of a boulder, where you take a 3-4 foot wheelie drop.

some friends and I stumbled onto a HUGE collection of stunts in the deep of the woods a few months ago, 4+ foot drops and skinnies.... its sick! near Mills reservation.

This is alittle off topic but how do you make the image size small enough so you can post it? The file size is to bike (353 kb when it needs to be around 180?) i have some good stunts in my backyard that i would like to post but cant get the images small enough.

I have alot of vaca time left, some of which I'd like to spend on day trips; before I start searching around...where, in the ballpark, is Case? In central CT near Hartford, or Eastern? I've been to some of the parks in W. CT. (Huntington, Mianus, Trumbull) and they've all been excellent. From your photo and others I've seen, the place looks great and I've heard nothing but good things. Thanks!

Case Mountain , CT

It's right outside of Hartford... Check out http://www.bikerag.com. They have some great pics and a half decent map.
Find the "secret trail" and you will find more stunts and drops than you will be able to do in one day. Bring a camera!
I once rode with no hands and one foot on the pedals.

Thanks, fb! I forgot how informational (and funny) that site is!

Now please keep your hands and feet on the pedals!!!

Carter227 here's the link to a free image compressor:
http://www.topicstarter.com/mtb/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=112

It does a great job keeping the high quality of the original picture and is very easy to use.

I like that one too. There are 3 little drops in a row and that one is in the middle. I think it’s the top of the red trail. I don’t know my way around Ringwood that much and I’m looking to figure it out better. If you ever want to meet up during the week PM me. I live 10 minutes from there.

Hey fakebeave, im new to the scene but love the freeriding stunts... any way you can tell me how to get to the secret trails at case, that is if youre willing to make them a little less secret?

1- Your best bet is to join a local trail maintenance crew, group ride or both. People are not going to give up the secret locations to everybody.

2 -You know that group of kids with BMX bikes and skate boards that hang out in your town, buy them some beer and smokes and ask them where their secret stunt area is. There are little pump tracks, jumps and skinnies all over the place.

Good luck.:thumbsup:

Thanks if I was looking for BMX stunts I would have done exactly that. Guess I'll just hit my trails and find my way around case with some boys so I don't have to deal with stuck up riders acting like roadies.
