Intermediate to advanced mountain biking skills are needed for most of this 7 mile trail system. However, there are shorter and easier trails throughout the park to consider riding. The Cushetunk Trail is by far the most challenging and was once the event home of a major off road triathlon. Hilly, rooty and technical, the Cushetunk Trail offers the more advanced rider with opportunities to test their bike handling skills. The beautiful reservoir can be seen throughout the ride.
Consider bringing your own hydration and nutrition or pick up along the way to the trails. Round Valley Reservoir is in a quiet, rural area. Depending on the route taken to the reservoir, there are a few good places for fueling along the way. Along Route 31 North, you’ll pass Fuel Good Cafe, Exxon and BP gas stations at the corner of Route 31 and Payne Road also offer convenience stores and restrooms and Sunoco by Molasses Hill Road also has a convenience store with restrooms available.
