    Pretty sure anything off the main double track loop of Mt. Easter/Clay Bed is "private property" or "illegal". The AT runs through that area and crosses the main road once or twice so you'll want to avoid that. Was up there this morning for an hour or so. Much fun.

    @eldtim said, "I just rode Mt Easter Rd yesterday. Best dirt road I've found in CT. It looked like there were other roads that branched off. I didn't explore because I was by myself and wasn't sure if they led to private property. Did you explore any of those?"

    I did not but would like to. I'll have to scout out google sat maps 1st.

    I figured most of it was off limits since they didn't show up on my gps. Great spot to ride. Maybe we can meet up for a ride up there some time.

    Nice misty riding in the northwest corner today. Up over Riga/Mt Washington/Mt Everett. and back. Down along the Housatonic. And saw a bear up in Mt. Easter!

    Nice. I was going to head up that way today, but the bike is in the shop.
